A 60 watt portable power fuel cell system has been built operating on ambient air and hydrogen as supplied by the deactivation of lanthanum nickel hydride. The use of the endothermic hydride deactivation process in conjunction with the fuel cell considerably reduced steady state system operating temperatures. The hydride reaction was initially sustained through use of heating coil, but thereafter could be maintained at 20 C by transferring waste heat from the fuel cell.
