Water Chargers-Now charge your cellphones using water instead of electricity

Water Chargers-Now charge your cellphones using water instead of electricity

Some days ago, researcher developed a new technique for charging the devise without electricity. When we want to charge our device we just need to add water and get a power at any place anytime.
This is useful for those people who spend a long time away from the electricity means in these area which have a big problem of electricity like-desert,forest etc.. At that time If they need to charge their device at that time it just add a water in charger and they can have power.

This is developed by a team in Sweden’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology and made by MyFC, it is  the water-activated charging device that will give power using fresh or salt water, the developers claimed. It can extend battery life up to 3 watts.

There is another source of light is solar energy, But solar charging can be affected by the weather and the position of the sun and not hugely helpful if your urgent power shortage hits at night. Water charging is not affected by these factors. It also works in Desert area because it just need a spoonful water.
The new device leverages the team’s more than 15 years of research on micro fuel cell technology and small flat Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cells at the Department of Applied Electro-chemistry at KTH
If want to use PowerTrekk charger, you need to just fill-up water compartment of charger with about one tablespoon, close the lid and connect it to the electronic device with a USB cable. It starts charging automatically as the water inside interacts with a small disposable metal disc causing hydrogen gas to be released.
When the gas combines with oxygen it converts chemical energy into electrical energy. While in many ways fuel cells are similar to batteries, they are different in that electrodes do not become consumed making them finite.
Instead provided water and air is provided to the electrodes, these fuel cells will run. Very green power,water vapor is the only by-product.
Now a days, Powertrekk works with devices like Smart phones, digital cameras, iPods.
 In this ways, you can charge your device using a spoonful water.
