Things like batteries don’t have to look pedestrian. They can be stylish, just like the devices they power. The same is true of recharging devices.
Take the Hitachi Fuel Cell Recharger for example. It packs enough punch to recharge a mobile phone, an MP3 player, or another portable electronic device, yet it has an elegant look about it. It can sit horizontally and look like any old charger. It can also fold open and look like a listening device or something definitely high-tech.
Actually, it is high-tech, with its direct methanol fuel cell and its four units of power generation. Small enough to fit in your pocket and certainly in your laptop bag or purse, the Hitachi Fuel Cell Recharger also has a capacitor for storing energy before you hook up a device to charge, cutting down on overall charging time.
