Start your MP3 player’s engine.

Actually, that statements not too far off. Toshiba has developed a fuel cell the size of a pack of chewing gum that can power a flash based player for up to 35 hours. The cell’s fuel is methanol and holds 3.5ml. There is also a large size cell for a HD based player, which holds 60ml and can power it for up to 60 hours. The cells put out 100mW and 300mW respectively.

How stable is methanol…in your pocket…in an electrical device?

The two cell cartridges will be displayed at CEATEC JAPAN.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
