refill it with what? do you have access to useable methane? (i have a lot of methane after beans but i digest, er digress...) hydrogen's more readily available, but do you want to hook up your tiny battery to a 4ft cylinder?

These cells use Methanol not Methane. Methane is a gas, Methanol is a liquid, a simple alcohol that you can go to Lowe's and buy by the gallon fairly cheap.
