Metric: Fuel cells to take off in 2006

According to a new study from NanoMarkets, 2006 will be the break-through year for mobile fuel cells, a soon-to-be commercial technology that will provide longer-lasting power supply for handsets and other mobile devices. The study estimates that the mobile fuel market in 2010 will be worth $1.6 billion and about $2.6 billion in 2012. Insiders say the technology will fulfill future burgeoning power requirements for the smart phone. Initially the fuel cells may serve to complement batteries as portable rechargers or as battery/fuel cell hybrids, in which fuel cells provide long-lasting power and batteries deal with power spikes.
