H2Go Radio Controlled Hydrogen Powered Car

Remote Controlled Hydrogen Powered Car

The H2Go Radio Controlled Hydrogen Powered Car is probably one of the most advanced eco and educational toys you’ll ever see for children. Basically the car is powered using hydrogen gas, and can reach speeds of up to 6 miles an hour (which is a scale speed equivalent to 80mph!).

The H2Go kit includes a hydrogen fuel station that is used to transfer the hydrogen to the car itself. The solar panel is used to split water into hydrogen and oxygen via electrolysis to top up the hydrogen fuel in the fueling station. If you’re short on sunlight, you can also use the included AC adapter to top up the fueling station.

The car will run for up to 6 minutes after a single 3.5 minute refueling process. The fueling station gives about an hours worth of hydrogen gas after just 4 minutes of charging, which is quite a lot of energy!

The Hydrogen car is much more expensive than the average eco-friendly toy at $147.95, however, it does use clean and eco-friendly energy and will run for hours on end. And as a further bonus, batteries are not required for the car (although you’ll need them for the remote control).
