Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology is the future. And increasingly we see attempts to use this technology in our everyday gadgets. It promises to stock green energy as the perfect substitute for today's polluting heavy metal batteries.Imagine a smartphone running for days without charging or even your laptop?
For some time Horizon Fuel Cell has been announcing a solution to bring the hydrogen technology to our everyday life.
And since the launch of this product I became curious to know it better as well as I know that several other people became interested. Now through Indiegogo collective funding it is our chance.
The MINIPAK handheld charger can be used to charge cell phones or power other USB electronics such as LED lights.
The product may be used for emergencies and remote off-grid situations such as camping, sailing, or various professional activities.
It is the perfect on-the-go charging device for your power hungry USB devices and mobile phones.
The MINIPAK handheld charger uses the hydrogen cartridges, which can be refilled automatically using HYDROFILL “personal hydrogen station”.

There are already some reviews on the Internet about this set of gadgets - Minipak, Hydrostik and Hydrofill - but none is complete or answers the main questions of early adopters and curious. We take the gadget to the limit.
This project comes to answer these questions, such as:
1) How long does it take to load a Hydrostik?
2) How much energy can I get from a liter of water?
3) With a charged Hydrostik which kind of device can I use?
4) How many times can I charge my cell phone?
5) For how long can I make a portable TV work?
6) Is the energy of Hydrostik sufficient to operate a simple engine? What about a model airplane or a model car? For how long?
7) It is easy to operate the system? I want to see videos of operation!!!
8) Does the unit heat up?
9) Is it easy and safe to disassemble? What is inside?
xx) Place your question here !!!
To answer these questions, I need to purchase the Hydrofill, Hydropak and HydroStick, to pay shipping costs and taxes and to buy reliable tools for the tests.
I am a Computer Scientist, Project Manager, enthusiast of new technologies who needs your contribution so we can learn more about this device that may soon be part of our daily lives.
This project will work only if we get at least the stipulated minimum value of US$ 1,200.00. If we do not get the full amount, the project will be unfeasible and all money raised will be returned to donors.
The costs are estimated as follows:
- Minipak: US$ 99,99
- Hydrofill: US$ 349,99
- Hydrostick: US$ 24.99
- Shipping: US$ 100.00
- Taxes: US$ 350.00
- Tools: US$ 100.00
- Indiegogo Fees: US$ 84.00
