According to many experts, we may soon find ourselves using fuel cells to generate electrical power for all sorts of objects we use every day. A fuel cell is a device that uses a source of fuel, such as hydrogen, and an oxidant to create electricity from an electrochemical process.
Much like the batteries that are found under the hoods of automobiles or in flashlights, a fuel cell converts chemical energy to electrical energy.
All fuel cells have the same basic configuration, an electrolyte and two electrodes, but there are different types of fuel cells, based mainly on what kind of electrolyte they use.
