NTT DoCoMo and AquaFairy have shown off a prototype charger that uses water as its fuel source. The charger has a catalysts which converts the water to hydrogen that then fuels it. The catalyst is good for several charges. This new water charger is significantly smaller and twice as powerful as methanol based chargers that the company showed off last year. It produces enough power to charge the phone in the same amount of time as an AC socket. Because it only lasts for a few charges, this charger is not meant to replace AC models, but as a supplement for people who use 3G services so much their battery doesn't last a day or for emergency charges. The two companies signed an agreement last week to begin development of a production model charger based on this technology.
