Portable metal-hydride fueled fuel cell systems, producing regulated 28VDC output at 30 watts and 60 watts, have been built. The systems are easily refuelable with pellets of solid sodium aluminum hydride and water to generate hydrogen. Ambient air, supplied by natural convection, is the oxidant. The energy density approaches 960 watt-hours per pound of fuel. A power conditioning unit provides the regulated output power and logic circuits for automatic operation of the fuel cell systems.
