Toshiba DMFC chargers for phones and laptops will be delayed

Toshiba is to delay selling their first DMFC, direct methanol fuel cell battery charger after running into issues with securing particular components.

So what is a DMFC? Well its actually a portable charger for mobile phones and the like whereby you don’t need to plug the device into the wall.

DMFC’s deliver electricity via a reaction between air, water and methanol and Toshiba’s next fuel cell products will be embedded DMFC’s in laptops and phones, with the only by-product being a small amount of carbon dioxide and water vapour the DFMC is seen as a much greener source of energy.
