    Hi Red Dragon,

    We looked at this product about a year ago.
    A 250Watt fuel cell from propane is very attractive to some but we find most won't even entertain that kind of weight which seems to make it uncompetitive.

    There is another 250Watt propane fuel cell we are sizing up at the moment but we are waiting on its CE Marking as it is an American product. The weight is much lighter... about 10kg but ticket price will probably sit at about £13k.

    Do you necessarily need 250 watts or would something in the region of 100 watts suffice?
    Have you looked into the EFOY Range? I've attached a datasheet for your reference.
    If you wanted to see what size would work we have a handy data calculator which will recommend you which one could work for your kit. Just follow the Link below:

    Hope this was informative!
