The MINIPAK is positioned to address gaps in providing energy "on the go" for power-hungry device users, as well to provide as a low cost energy storage option for emergencies and long duration off-grid power users. We all have experienced the need to power our communication device when the power goes out. Scale up your emergency contingency plan for business needs with more cartridges to extend your duration off the grid.
It is also the most advanced, practical and portable scale technology demonstration for clean energy. Weight with included cartridge is 7.4 oz / 210g. The desktop HYDROFILL is the size of a can opener, add water and plug it into household 110volt outlet (23 watts operating). It makes enough hydrogen to reload a cartridge (about 11 liters) within about 4 hours with only an occasional girgle. That is it really, as they say just add water and plug it in; simple clean energy on a small portable scale.

The HYDROFILL and HYDROSTIKs listed below as "related items" are included in the above kit price. Order the complete kit above then stop by the supermarket and pickup an 89¢ gallon of distilled water (the one with the red cap) and be ready to operate your own mini hydrogen power station.
Note: InTouch SmartCards offers a HYDROSTIK easy exchange program where we recharge them for you. You purchase only the MINIPAK and HYDROSTIKs and once 5 cartridges are used send them via a mailer and we recharge and return them for you. Some emergency plans require only charged cartridges on hand and customers send us their spent cartridges after each event passes. InTouch reloads the cartridges and returns them full so no HYDROFILL device is required on your premises.
