MTI MicroFuel Cells Demonstrates Refillable External Power Pack Technology for Original Equipment Manufacturers  

MTI MicroFuel Cells Inc. (MTI Micro), developer of the award-winning Mobion® micro fuel cell technology for handheld electronic devices and a subsidiary of Mechanical Technology Incorporated (MTI) (NASDAQ: MKTY), announced a successful showing at the 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), as executives from the Company hit the conference floor with a series of external power pack prototypes and met with potential partners, customers and leading consumer electronics manufacturers. 

CES is a great event and we were glad to be there to share the progress that Mobion® technology has made in the past year, said Peng Lim, CEO of MTI. In demonstrating our latest external power pack prototype, leading consumer electronics manufacturers from around the world were able to witness Mobion®s capabilities and anticipated product direction as we move toward our goal of launching a micro fuel cell product in 2009.

The latest prototypes displayed at CES were produced in Albany, NY at MTI Micros new developmental pilot production line. MTI Micro first announced the successful development of a series of external power pack prototypes late last year including improvements on size reductions greater than 60% and increases in energy and power density.

MTI Micro is developing Mobion® cord-free rechargeable power pack technology as a superior solution for powering the multi-billion dollar portable electronics market. MTI Micro’s strategy is to enter the market with low power products for use in the consumer electronics industry for applications like cell phones, PDAs, MP3 players and other handheld electronic devices.

In 2007, MTI Micro signed an agreement with Trident Systems, Inc., a leader in the development of unattended ground sensors, signed a continuing collaboration covering cell phone and cell phone accessories with its top tier, global Korean partner, and signed an agreement with DaeHong, its Korean representative.
