Lilliputian Systems Inc. introduced a mobile power system at CES called Nectar, a charging device that leverages MEMS solid fuel cell technology.
Nectar's butane fuel and high-efficiency solid oxide fuel cells provide high energy density. Butane is stored in a pod cartridge (left), then inserted into the mobile power system. Capable of powering consumer devices for more than two weeks, the system charges smartphones, eReaders and digital cameras that comply with USB 2.0.
According to the company, aviation regulators will allow Nectar to be stowed in carry-on bags.
