World's First oragnic battery.

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



Quote:
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.

Wow, that is amazing. I agree, the with you in how the oil companies don't really care about the environment or their customers, they just care about their bankroll. :(

the oil companies have put the kabash on a lot of things that would have given the consumes a greener or more fuel efficient choice but that is a really cool battery i hope they can get it off the ground.

Well yeah, they don't want something out that could possibly hinder the sales of their oil but the battery is a cool idea

That's really awesome. I doubt it'll threaten oil anytime soon, especially considering its low capacity would be a poor fit for cars, but I could see it becoming commonplace in household items.

I hear ya, it still has a lot of development to go through before it anywhere near formidable capacity to gas engines
