In this study a test of the direct-mode bioorganic fuel cell (DMBFC) in which the fuel and the alkaline electrolyte are mixed with each other at two temperatures of 20 and 35 degrees C are carried out. The direct-mode bioorganic fuel cell is exposed to an externally generated electromagnetic field with simultaneous discharging in order to split the fuel molecule before the electrochemical oxidation at the two operation temperatures. The current-voltage characteristics are measured and analyzed. The liquid phase of the fuel-electrolyte concentration of the glucose was analysed both before and after the electrochemical tests at the operation temperature 20 degrees C. The aim is to continue with the development of the direct-mode glucose fuel cell by increasing the power density range by several mWcm(-2). This type of the fuel cell with glucose as a fuel has increased to the specific capacity levels of 120.8 and 132.7 Ah / kg glucose at the temperatures of 20 degrees C and 35 degrees C, respectively.
