Millennium Cell to Test Market LED, Device Charger Technology.
Millennium Cell Inc., a developer of hydrogen battery technology, has received confirmation of an award for a test market of its LED light and device charger.
The award is part of phase II of the Greater Columbia Fuel Cell Challenge, sponsored by the USC Columbia Fuel Cell Collaborative, to perform a market test of an LED light and device charger, designed and manufactured by Millennium Cell.
Gecko Energy Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Millennium Cell, will market test the product, which uses Millennium Cell's PowerSkin fuel cells and Hydrogen on Demand fuel system to provide long lasting power to small, portable lighting and to simultaneously charge portable devices like cell phones and PDA's.
Millennium Cell will establish operations for the market test at the University of South Carolina's technology incubator and will eventually transition into Innovista and evaluation will be conducted with assistance from the City of Columbia, USC School of Business and Greenway Energy LLC
"We are very pleased to establish a base of operations for the commercialization of Gecko products in Columbia and to receive support from the city and a number of South Carolina agencies to conduct this market test," said Adam Briggs, president of Millennium Cell. "The State of South Carolina has been visionary in its support for development and launch of hydrogen fuel cell products through their commitment to developing a knowledge based economy state wide. We are excited to get the opportunity to work with first responders and other emergency workers and to get their views on how best to serve these markets with our technology."
