Rugged laptops are increasingly vital for emergency responders, public safety and military personnel. In many areas, vital medical, emergency, and other information often needs to be accessed and input in the field via laptop computers. In these remote locations, there is little available AC power and carrying enough laptop batteries for a full deployment is impractical. You need an advanced, simple, flexible, and transportable power system to enable computers to be used in field service and other remote envrionments where mobility is key.
UltraCell's XX25 fuel cells have provided portable, reliable, uninterrupted power to laptop data gathering terminals and other vital systems in these "off the grid" areas. The UltraCell XX25™ system is the first commercially available fuel cell specifically designed to power rugged laptops. For field operations requiring longer uninterrupted runtime, the UltraCell XX25™ system, with a single 250 cc fuel cartridge, can power a rugged laptop for approximately 12-14 hours*. New cartridges are easily swapped for empty ones for weeks of instant power-enabling operation away from the grid.
Currently, the UltraCell XX25 fuel cell has been successfully tested with several rugged laptop models from MiTAC, General Dynamics and Panasonic.
Lightweight, portable design lighten the load on relief workers and logistics
Hot swappable cartridges ensure continuous operation of vital equipment
Reliable power enables mission success
Intuitive ease of use enables success without need for engineering support
