Fuel Cell Chargers to UK Retailer

Electric Fuel Corporation announced today that Tesco PLC, Britain’s largest retailer, will carry Electric Fuel’s line of Instant Power(TM) chargers for cell phones and PDAs.

NEW YORK, New York – April 17, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] The initial rollout will be in 225 of Tesco’s 692 stores throughout the United Kingdom and on-line at its Web site. Electric Fuel’s Instant Power(TM) fuel cell charger requires no electrical outlet and allows consumers to charge and keep talking on their cell phones simultaneously, even if their battery is dead. The pocket-sized device weighs less than three ounces and allows cell phones to be used on the move, anywhere, anytime. The Instant Power(TM) charger draws energy from its replaceable Power Cartridge(TM) and plugs directly into the mobile device. Each cartridge provides up to three charges and supports hours of talk time. “We are delighted to have established a presence in the largest chain of retail shops in the entire UK and the 10th largest retailer in the entire world,” said Electric Fuel President and CEO Yehuda Harats. “Being in Tesco gives Electric Fuel a new and unprecedented level of visibility in the UK, enabling us to offer even more consumers the ability to talk, work and charge, anywhere, anytime — no electricity needed.”
