Great column on Jadoo and fuel cells
Do note, however, that the column doesn't express how crowded the fuel cell market is getting, and that the writer doesn't reflect the ongoing debate among VCs and others I've spoken with in the cleantech investment community -- as previously described in this blog, and as reflected in the comment from the column:
But the column is still a very good description of Jadoo and their niche market goals.
Andrew Burke, a researcher and fuel cell expert at the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California, Davis, points out that hydrogen is more expensive than electricity for recharging a device - about 15 cents per fill-up, compared with 2 cents for recharging a battery. [Jadoo co-founder Larry] Bawden of Jadoo called the difference "background noise" compared with the benefits of fuel-cell technology.
