NEW YORK, N.Y. - Medis Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: MDTL) , developer of the world's first consumer portable fuel cell, announced that, the second largest online-only retailer in the world with more than 12 million registered users, is now carrying breakthrough Medis products. Interested parties should go to and search "Medis" in the search box at the top left of the screen.

Jose Mejia, Medis Chairman and CEO said, " has an award-winning website that has millions of eyes -- and buyers--looking for the latest and greatest new products. It is an ideal e-tailer to boost our online visibility and reach our target customers: people looking for "always-on" pure-green power products for backup use, for emergency assurance, and for the sheer thrill of making electricity in your hand. We believe that Newegg could be a key player in helping us to ramp up our sales.

" is an always-on e-tailer with best-of-breed customer service, and we are very pleased that our products are listed on their site," said Mejia.

Mejia said that Newegg is offering an assortment of Medis' breakthrough products: the Medis Fuel Cell Xtreme Emergency Kit, the Medis 24/7 Xtreme Fuel Cell Power Portable Charger, and the 24/7 Power Pack Replacement Fuel Cell Refill, all powered by Medis' green fuel cells that have zero carbon footprint, no emissions, and no recycling issues.

The Medis Fuel Cell Xtreme Emergency Kit delivers instant emergency light and power for a cell phone, radio or flashlight for several days. The kits are especially well-suited as a back-up in the event of a hurricane or earthquake, a power outage or blackout. Unlike batteries, they do not store electricity -- they make it on demand, so they have an extremely long shelf life and do not "go dead." With near universal compatibility, the Medis 24/7 Xtreme Fuel Cell Power Portable Charger is ideal for instantly powering smart phones to standard phones as well as other handheld devices when batteries run out and wall outlets aren't available. The 24/7 Power Pack Replacement Fuel Cell Refill enables consumers to replace the fuel cell power pack while keeping the power cable and connector tips for continued use.

Small and lightweight, the Medis portable power system uses electrochemical energy to provide worry-free, instant power anytime, anyplace, without the emission of greenhouse gases, toxic chemicals or hazardous waste.
