Medis, a startup specializing in fuel cells, began delivery of its first products to Microsoft on Friday. Medis executives said Microsoft will brand the products as its own and sell them as portable recharging stations for consumer devices.
A Microsoft representative confirmed the purchase Tuesday afternoon. Unfortunately for Medis, however, a source close to the company said the number sold to Microsoft was "small," and that Microsoft wouldn't be selling the fuel cells, but supplying them as free goodies for an undisclosed upcoming conference.

Gizmodo posted this and then corrected it to say that Microsoft had these made for a giveaway and have no intention of marketing them.
Thanks for the clarification
