Ground-Breaking Fuel Cell Patents Available for Sale from ICAP Patent Brokerage

New York, NY, April 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ( -- ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale innovative cylindrical fuel cell designs.  

"The patents in this portfolio cover geometric fuel cell designs, and should be of interest to fuel cell and battery manufacturers as well as product manufacturers looking for off grid power solutions, given their early priority dates and innovative technology," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

Key Characteristics & Benefits

Unlike conventional fuel cell designs dominated by plate and frame geometry that is prone to leakage due to the large number of linear seals and complex gasket arrangements, the disclosed technology utilizes a cylindrical design, placing tubular membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) in serial and/or parallel configuration, (depending on desired application), significantly reducing points of failure, and that failure in a single cell does not result in failure of the overall system. In addition, the cylindrical design is extremely compact enabling smaller efficient fuel cells to be developed for portable power applications. The easy multi-chamber refueling mechanism (similar to lighter refueling) enables remote refueling offering multiple opportunities for manufacturers looking for recharging mechanisms that do not require connection to electrical power. 

A working prototype to illustrate the suitability of this fuel cell technology as a replacement for conventional batteries has also been developed in the form of a standard D-Cell battery.
