For Hybrids, Fuel Cell Direct, EV Battery Range Extension, Off-grid charging. Our technology is a hot-swap-capable, unlimited range energy systems which can be fuelled anywhere. With the market crashes and changing economic conditions, less people have homes and more people have apartments. Generally, you can't plug an electric car in at an apartment or leave extensions cords trailing across the side-walk. Our technology eliminates the need for extension cords. Our technology allows you to take fuel for a drive across the U.S. in a high-range electric car in one load. Forget about extension cords for your electric car. Charge in apartments, hotels, offices and at home. Medium size Fuel Cassettes™ have a pop-out roller wheel and a slide-up handle so you can just wheel them from car-to-home, car-to-office or device-to-plug in any office building, apartment complex, hotel or other location. The market has spoken loud and clear. It is now proven that consumers are totally unwilling to buy an electric car they have to wait 5, 10, or up to 80 minutes, to refuel. Period. With Lim-Pac technology the wait is less than 50 SECONDS! Lim-Pac predicted this pain-point in the market over a decade ago; and solved it!
Hydrogen fuel-cell cars look to overtake electric autos - CNN.com By Vanessa Ko , for CNNCNN.com (CNN) -- As electric cars try to forge more than just a niche in the market, the auto industry is already looking to another form of clean technology that could overtake today's battery-powered vehicles.Commitments by automobile manufactures to develop hydrogen fuel-cell cars have surged in recent months. Toyota, Hyundai, Daimler and Honda announced plans to build vehicles that run on the most abundant element in the universe and emit only water vapor as a byproduct."A lot of auto makers believe the fuel-cell vehicle is just a better performing vehicle and just makes more sense," said Kevin See, a senior analyst of electric vehicles at Lux Research in Boston. A fuel-cell-powered car can travel much longer distances than battery-powered ones before needing to be refueled, and fuel cells can be more readily used in large vehicles like trucks and SUVs. Hyundai has annouced that it will offer a fuel-cell version of its ix35 sport utility vehicle (known as the Tucson in the U.S.) on lease by the end of this year. It plans to make up to 1,000 fuel-cell cars by 2015 and thereafter 10,000 fuel-cell cars per year. © Cable News Network. Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. All Rights Reserved
General Motors, once a very public leader in the move to develop hydrogen fuel cells for transportation use, has been pretty quiet on the subject for the past decade.Recently though, GM announced a joint venture with Honda to build a fuel cell manufacturing plant, and, with the U.S. Army, has begun testing a military vehicle, the ZH2, that’s based on a heavily modified, fuel cell powered Chevrolet Colorado midsize pickup. GM has invested at least $2.5 billion in the technology in just the past two decades. Charles Freese, GM’s global head of fuel cell development, sat down with Trucks.com recently to discuss the automaker’s approach — he calls it a land-sea-air technology — and what the future might hold for fuel cells. Here is an edited version of the conversation: You’ve developed the Chevrolet ZH2 military fuel cell truck, but you don’t have a civilian vehicle. Why? We haven’t announced a vehicle program yet, but we have announced that we are building the plant to build the propulsion systems that will be used by vehicles from both Honda and GM. The ZH2 program is an opportunity to get synergy from something both we and the military are interested in.
We wanted with the ZH2 to evaluate how the technology performs in a true off-road vehicle, a pickup truck with extreme capabilities, and we’re trying to leverage what fuel cells offer that other technologies are not as well-equipped to offer. We have a big vehicle with 300-400 miles of range, and we can also offer twice the efficiency of an internal combustion engine with all the torque needed for four-wheel drive and rock-crawling. We’ve got approach and departure angles that are better than a Humvee. Such as? We had people up on hillside one night, waiting for the ZH2 so they could take pictures of it, and they couldn’t hear it coming. That ability to have stealthy operation and a low thermal signature, which we deliver with a fuel cell electric drive system, is very desirable for the military. They don’t want to be detected. And then add to that the ability to export 25 to 50 kiloWatts of power [from the fuel cell], which could run a field hospital, or a laser targeting system, even a high-energy weapon. And you don’t need a big Humvee towing a diesel generator, which is bulky and very noisy. And then the fuel cell produces water, which is very valuable in battlefield conditions. And hydrogen is just a way to store energy, so you can make it from whatever is in the field, from wind, solar, jet fuel, natural gas, any petroleum source.
