Yes, although it is not entirely self contained, instead of recieving its power from another location and converting it with supreme efficiency. But due to its stacking of ceramic plates and compact shape, the Bloom Box qualifies as a gas based fuel cell, as opposed to the hydrogen ones we’re more familiar with.
I hope this helped!
The Bloom box is indeed a fuel cell and this is basically how it works:
“The box consists of a stack of ceramic disks coated with green and black “inks.” The disks are separated by cheap metal alloy plates. Methane (or other hydrocarbons) and oxygen are fed in, the whole thing is heated up to 1,000 degrees Celsius, and electricity comes out. Bloom estimates that a box filled with 64 ceramic disks can produce enough juice to power a Starbucks.”
