World's First oragnic battery.

this is amazing, too bad oil companies will never let this happen though.

Professor Chungpin Hovering Liao of National Formosa University in Taiwan has created the world’s first chlorophyll organic battery. The battery can use any liquid—even urine—to power up. It doesn’t take much time to start juicing the battery, either. Within 10 seconds of being doused with liquid, the battery starts providing power.

The battery’s flexibility does come with a catch: it only produces half the power of a conventional battery . But its power generation capabilities are still formidable—the chlorophyll battery reportedly can store more energy than Japan’s water-powered fuel cells.
Professor Liao’s battery also has the low production cost of NT$1 to NT$2 (US$.03 to US$.06). And unlike conventional batteries, it doesn’t contain toxic substances.
Stay tuned for more info about the invention—Liao is currently in the process of applying for patents in Taiwan and the United States.
