Electric Fuel Corporation (Nasdaq:EFCX), which makes zinc-air fuel cells, said that Air France (CAC:AF) will be offering Instant Power 3-in-1 Cellphone Chargers to passengers on its flights as of October 2002.

Chargers will be presented in the French national carrier's in-flight retail catalog, Electric Fuel said. The service crew will become familiar with the chargers prior to selling them.

The charger kit includes a car adapter, a USB adapter and a replaceable zinc air PowerCartridge for use where no electric power is available.

Also included is a model-specific SmartCord for connecting the three power sources to the user's cellphone or PDA and thus offers three charging modes for people on the go, the company said.
