Voller Energy to Use Palcan PC-150 Fuel Cell Stack

June 09, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Voller Energy (UK) and Palcan Fuel Cells Ltd. announced that Voller Energy has selected Palcan's PC-150 fuel cell stack as the power source in the Voller Energy VE100 portable fuel cell system. Voller Energy, a leading European manufacturer of portable fuel cell systems, designs battery rechargers and mobile generator products.

The new Voller Energy VE100 hand-held product is approximately the size and weight of a laptop computer or portable typewriter, and provides both dc and ac output; any electrical device that has an ordinary mains or wall socket plug can be plugged into the VE100, just as if the user was plugging into a mains electrical supply at home or in the office. The VE100 also has a 13.8Vdc "cigar lighter" or automotive-type electrical socket, which can be used to recharge a battery in a mobile phone or laptop, or to recharge a automobile battery.

Voller Energy CEO Stephen Voller said, "We are delighted with the VE100 and we are impressed with the robust, reliable performance of the Palcan PC-150. In tests the Palcan stack stood up to considerable wear and tear. We are confident that with our system and the Palcan stack, we are offering an excellent product in the VE100."
