Powertrekk - Charge Your BlackBerry With Water


One of Lisa and my favorite pieces of technology spotted at CES was tucked away in the Venetian. Though most of the action during the show is found at the Las Vegas Convention Center, you can find the obscure and sometimes scrappier start-ups in the neighboring hotel ballrooms. Powertrekk is a charger that uses a “PowerPukk” which holds a sodium silicate. As the water passes through the pukk, it produces a hydrogen gas. The gas then passes through a membrane, producing electricity to fuel the internal 1500 mAh battery and power your device via the USB port. Each pukk will fuel the internal 1500 mAh battery about two times.
