Solar charged cell phones on the horizon?
Posted: 19-Apr-2001 [Source: CNET]

[A high-performance solar module to be demonstrated next week in Freiburg, Germany.]

"German researchers are developing new types of power cells that could eliminate the need to recharge mobile devices.

"Casio, Siemens and other manufacturers of cell phones and handheld computers are already building prototype devices that use the new power cells, developed at the energy technology department at the Fraunhofer Institute--Germany's answer to MIT.

"The plan is to replace rechargeable batteries in mobile devices with a miniature version of the hydrogen fuel cell used to power electric cars. A superefficient solar cell built into the devices would recharge the miniature fuel cell.
