Taiwan is going green with a hydrogen-based mobile phone charger.

Earlier today, Taiwanese scientists at the Industrial Technology Research Institute announced that they have successfully created a hydrogen-powered charger for mobile phones that even Kermit the frog would sing about. This means that the device is capable of recharging a mobile phone battery in two hours without the need to be plugged into a wall outlet.

"Hydrogen is a recyclable material," said Tsau Fanghei, a researcher at the institute. "The device is energy-efficient and will help protect the environment. We will continue to improve the invention. We hope the hydrogen-powered device can replace current cell phone recharge systems in 2012."
