A leader in lightweight fuel cells for the portable power market, UltraCell has portable fuel cell units currently deployed in the field by U.S. military and security agencies. UltraCell is working with the U.S. Department of Defense for logistical solutions by using methanol for portable lightweight chargers that do not require JP8 fuel (Jet Propellant 8) to run the system, thus helping to decrease its carbon footprint. For example, UltraCell’s Generation 3 of the XX55™ fuel cell systems convert methanol into electricity to meet both the demand for portable power on the battlefield and carbon neutral goals.

Advent will be showcasing three fuel cell products at DEFEA:

  • UltraCell’s XX55™ Fuel Cell: The XX55™ reformed methanol fuel cell is one of the industry’s newest ultra-compact and highly portable fuel cells. The XX55™ is designed to meet the rugged off-grid power needs of performance-demanding military and commercial users. Scaled from UltraCell’s award-winning and field proven XX25™ fuel cell system, the XX55™ delivers 50 watts of continuous power and up to 85 watts of peak power. It can run continuously off the grid for up to two weeks with a single hot swappable fuel tank.
  • 6-Port Mega Manager: This 6-port mobile interface is designed for demanding applications and includes battery clips, expansion power ports, and USB power ports.
  • GearUp!™: This device is designed for the traveling professional – to take an uninterruptible power source (UPS) power system anywhere. GearUp!™ meets airline carry on requirements for size & safety and fits the standard airlines’ personal baggage allowance.
