#EcoMonday tip 14: Get A Pocket-Sized Personal Fuel Cell!
A portable, affordable and cool looking pocket-sized hydrogen fuel cell that delivers 1.5 to 2W of continuous power... what more do you want? This pocket-sized fuel cell for personal usage called 'Minipak' was created by US based company Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies. The MiniPak was designed to power and recharge your everyday smaller appliances such as phones and personal media devices.

The Horizon MiniPak delivers 1.5 to 2W of continuous power through an integrated micro-USB port and comes with a converter so it will fit almost all devices on the market. The replaceable fuel cartridges (HydroStiks) deliver up to 12Wh of energy. The MiniPak ($100) is able to store hydrogen safely as a dry, non-toxic and non-pressurized material. But that's not all, Horizon turned the MiniPak into a true gadget by simultaneously launching several add-ons. You can turn the MiniPak into a sustainable fan or flashlight in a matter of seconds.
