SAIT Develops DMFC for Notebook Computers.

Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT), together with Samsung Electronics Company, Ltd., recently announced the development of a direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) capable of powering a notebook personal computer (PC).

According to SAIT, the energy efficiency of the computer's DMFC was "optimized by a unique stack design that has a parallel fuel supply flow." SAIT said the DMFC enabled the "continuous usage of notebook PCs for more than 10 hours without recharging."

"We are planning to do some additional research with Samsung SDI to meet the criteria for commercialization, including energy density and cost, and we are optimistic about the successful application of DMFC in Samsung Electronic's note PC series...," said SAIT fuel cell researcher Hyuk Chang. "We aim to replace the portable and residential power supply with fuel cell[s] in the future."
