Gadget Stimulus Plan Day 12: Medis 24/7 Xtreme Fuel Cell Chargers

xtreme-portable-chargerWe’re trying to close your gadget deficit while the economy’s in the dumps with the Gadget Stimulus Plan. Today we’re giving away three Medis 24/7 Xtreme Fuel Cell Chargers. This is the first fuel cell system designed for consumers and works with just about any mobile phone, iPod or other small mobile device.

The kits include a fuel cell that can charge a phone up to six times. Replacement fuel cells cost $19.99, which is too expensive to use on a regular basis. I recommend picking one of these up and keeping it in your emergency kit in case you’re faced with an extended power outage or other disaster.


These fuel cells are FAA approved, which means you can use them on long flights.

The Medis Xtrreme 24/7 Xtreme Fuel Cell kit costs $34.95 and can be found at and other major retailers.
