British company claims fuel cell advance

CMR Fuel Cells, a Cambridge-based company, is claiming a major advance in fuel cell technology that could see laptop battery-sized fuel cells replacing current batteries soon.  The company is claiming the new fuel cell design is one-tenth the size of previous designs while lasting four times longer than current laptop batteries.  Fuel cells are instantly rechargeable and typically run on methanol.  Initial uses for the new fuel cells would be laptop computers and power tools.
