Device to generate both power and potable water

I wish there was a new portable technology that could extract hydrogen to produce electricity while also converting non-potable water into drinking water.
The technology would utilize a new aluminum alloy that, when immersed in water, would split the water into hydrogen and oxygen molecules. The hydrogen could fuel power cells, and drinking water could be harvested from the steam. The method would be ideal for remote areas, needing only the small reaction vessel and the fuel cell to work, and could be used with seawater as well as freshwater.
The new technology will be inexpensive and the aluminum hydroxide waste will be non-toxic.
