From TechOn:

Toshiba Corp. has been a constant front runner in the competition to develop fuel cells for mobile equipment. While the firm has exhibited a host of prototypes at various shows, it has never brought any to market ... until now. Construction puts safety first, making extensive use of metal parts such as stainless steel and aluminum alloy. We took one apart to see how it works, in cooperation with development engineers involved in fuel cells, mobile equipment, and other items.

“I'm impressed simply by the fact they actually went commercial,” says one engineer in the mobile gear field.

At the end of October 2009, Toshiba released a limited 3000 units of the “Dynario” fuel cell for mobile equipment. That act---releasing a fuel cell to the market in spite of the current depression---earned praise and astonishment from engineers in mobile equipment, fuel cells, and other fields.
