30 years continuous battery
Posted on October 16, 2007 by 200702
US Air Force Research Laboratory aims to develop a new battery whose juice could last 30 years.
This new battery is constructed from semiconductors and uses radioisotopes as the energy source. The reason the battery lasts so long is that neutron beta-decay into protons is the world’s most concentrated source of electricity. Plus, the reaction is non-thermal which means laptops gonna be cooler than ever before.
