Electric Fuel to Ship Instant Power Chargers for Pocket PC and Palm OS PDAs


Electric Fuel Corporation today announced that its latest INSTANT POWER(TM) Chargers for PDAs will be shipped early in the second quarter of 2001.

The new product lineup includes a charger for Palm V handheld computers that delivers up to 8 full charges. Other new models include chargers for Compaq iPAQ Pocket PCs, Handspring Prism and Visor Phone models, and Novatel Minstrel V wireless modems. Chargers for HP Jornada and Casio Cassiopeia models will be available soon.

INSTANT POWER Chargers allows users to power their PDAs without the need of an electrical outlet – which is especially important when on the move – and to simultaneously keep working while charging even if their battery is dead. The pocket-sized charger weighs less than three ounces and plugs directly into the PDA, allowing it to be used anywhere an electrical outlet is not readily available. The INSTANT POWER Chargers provide up to three charges for cellphones.

Electric Fuel recently spotlighted its new product line at the CTIA Wireless Expo in Las Vegas, and at CeBIT 2001 in Hannover.

The revolutionary INSTANT POWER Charger product line also includes models for cellphones from Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Ericsson, Panasonic, Siemens and Philips, including Internet-enabled models; other models are under development.

The Company also announced pricing for the INSTANT POWER Charger line. A complete INSTANT POWER charger kit, including reusable SmartCord, is priced at $19.95 (MSRP); INSTANT POWER Cartridges are priced at only $9.95 (MSRP).
