Fuel Cell charger JAQ is IEC-certified

Today myFC confirmed that the entire JAQ-charger’s system has passed the IEC tests.

The JAQ-system consists of the fuel cell charger JAQ together with the PowerCard, generating electricity for smartphones, tablets and other USB compatible electronics with the help of material including water and salt. The entire JAQ-system, as well as the PowerCards, has passed the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) tests, which confirms that the product is CE approved – a requirement for products in the EU.

­”The fact that the entire JAQ-system is IEC-certified is a crucial milestone for us. The certification work will continue for each new PowerCard we commercialize, according to current guidelines. This applies to new chargers as well as future integrated fuel cells,” says Björn Westerholm, CEO of myFC.

The first commercialized card is expected to be certified and ready for the approaching delivery after the complete IEC-certification. The certification means that the JAQ-system is compatible and harmonized with applicable regulations within the EU as well as outside the EU:

  • Electro Magnetic Capability Directive (EMC), 2014/30/EU
  • General Product Safety Directive (GPS), 2001/95/EC
