Medis Reports Higher Power Pack Operating Time

January 12, 2004 by Jeff Shepard

Medis Technologies Ltd. (New York) announced that it has significantly increased the planned operating time of its fuel cell Power Pack product for charging cell phones, digital cameras and other portable electronic devices. Using the same fuel cartridge footprint, the Power Pack is now planned to deliver the equivalent of 12 to 15 hours of cell phone talk time, or about five full charges of the battery, with each fueling depending on the individual cell phone power consumption and battery.

"We're pleased with these important strides in our product development," said Medis Chairman and CEO Robert Lifton. "Increased operating time per cartridge allows us to reduce the costs of packaging and shipping cartridges for each hour of use time, and will provide our customers with the convenience of carrying and using fewer cartridges to provide the use time they desire."
