hydrogen electric generators

I dont know an awful lot about this but I know theres a car and a motorbike that run on these hydrogen cells.

Before I go and buy a gas genny how likely is it that someone will start selling a hydrogen cell genny for motorhomes?

Is hydrogen feasible? Has it been done before?

We wild camp rather than use EHU's.

As well as our solar panels, I've just bought a Honda EX7 genny, to top up leisure batteries when required.

Superb piece of kit, only 10.5 kgs, and very quiet too...especially as I've built a sound insulating box to go on top of it.

Try a google search for hydromax fuel cell its made by Dynad in Holland and looks quite good to me. Yet to see it in the flesh and no UK agents. More power and less money than EFOY.

According to practical caravan, 180watts. Roadpro were showing it at the caravan show 2013 http://www.practicalcaravan.com/blog...avan-show-2013

No mention of it on their website though. https://www.roadpro.co.uk/retail/

I e-mailed road-pro a couple of months ago and they were not stockists, the guy at Dynad could not understand as he thought they were going to, but they do stock EFOY which are more expensive and less output.
