Motorola today announced they are investing in a Canadian company that is working on a fuel cell battery hybrid. Tekion is developing a small unit that combines a Formira fuel cell and a lithium ion battery. The battery would actually provide the power while the fuel cell would recharge the battery. This would provide a smaller and more stable power supply than current fuel cell solutions. Formira fuel cells are far more efficient and powerful than methanol units. The company hopes to launch the units commercially by 2007, initially offering them for satellite phones. Tekion will then set their sights on cell phones and portable electronics.

More data apps = more battery use

Good to see someone take the initiative on producing more powerful batteries.

You can talk about video calling all you want, but if the battery dies mid-call, it's pointless.
