Nectar fuel cell provides 2 weeks of on-the-go power for your iPhone or iPad

Live from CES 2013, we talk to Nectar about their fuel cell for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and anything other USB powered device. Nectar is composed of a single unit with a replaceable fuel cell, so you can take it with you, charge for up to 2 weeks, then change cells and keep on going.

How does it look to you? Is it small enough that you'd carry it around in a bag or even leave it in your car? How appealing are the replaceable butane power cells?

Seems cool, but with that high of a price tag I think I would rather look at solar options if I was going to be stranded somewhere...not to mention it doesn't seem very economical in a world that is still pushing to go green.

I could see limited applications for this type of device. If you have a job that requires you to be out in the field for extended periods of time, I'm thinking scientists engineers in areas without access to a power supply. I have to agree with the commenter above that I would look into a solar powered option as well. The cost is pretty expensive.

You should always hire cute mini-girls with bubbly personalities to promote tech products. Both guys and girls like them. :P

Why not just buy a phone, use it and when it runs out of battery toss it and buy another one? Clearly they did zero market research. I bet they will sell like 2 of them.
