New York, New York – October 10, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] Medis Technologies Ltd. has announced that its representatives have completed the first leg of a planned program to demonstrate the performance of its micro fuel cells to major companies in the United States and East Asia. The Medis team met with eleven U.S. companies involved in the use, manufacture, development, purchase and/or distribution of portable electronic devices. In each meeting, Medis demonstrated its fuel cell technology by measuring its fuel cell performance characteristics on an analyzing machine capable of such measurements. The Medis team demonstrated three different micro fuel cells: – A 20cc (cubic centimeter) fuel cell which demonstrated a power density ranging from 93 Mw/cm2 to 100 Mw/cm2 (milliwatts per square centimeter) and an energy capacity of at least 300 Wh/L (watt hours per liter). – A 45cc fuel cell which delivered 1.3 to 1.5 W and demonstrated an energy capacity of at least 300Wh/L. – A 30cc fuel cell Power Pack auxiliary power source which ran a cell phone and was capable of fully charging the cell phone’s empty battery (at least twice on each Power Pack fueling) as if it was connected to the wall socket. The size specified for the fuel cells that were demonstrated include the entire fuel cell. The Medis fuel cell does not have any external systems for delivering fuel, for water management, heat controls, forced air, reformers or other functions. It consists solely of two electrodes (an anode and a cathode), a plastic container and a space for the liquid electrolyte and the fuel which are to be provided by a single throw away cartridge. – NASDAQ: MDTL
