Sure, here's another excerpt: Another disadvantage of fuel cells is that they are not as durable as regular batteries, as they tend to degrade over time. Additionally, fuel cells require a catalyst to facilitate the chemical reactions, which can be costly and can also be damaged by impurities or contaminants in the fuel source. Lastly, fuel cells do not provide as much power as batteries or combustion engines, making them less suitable for high-power applications.

  • 00:00:00 In this section, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of fuel cells compared to regular galvanic cells. One of the advantages of using fuel cells is that as long as you're supplying fuel to the anode, you're going to generate electricity. Also, fuel cells are better for the environment as they only produce water vapor, while burning petrol produces carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. Efficiency-wise, fuel cells are better as they provide more energy per gram of fuel than regular burning. On the other hand, one of the disadvantages is that currently, they are expensive to produce, and there is no significant production scale. Also, there is no efficient way to generate hydrogen for fuel cells, and the infrastructure to transport it is absent, making transport and storage difficult and problematic.
