Yes, a wooden battery. This may sound like a terrible thought from the start, yet wood is delicate, solid and adaptable and it can hold fluid electrolytes. Furthermore we’re discussing nano-electric cells here, so it just takes a minuscule wood strand to make a complete electric cell —well, a wood filament covered in a layer of tin.

Designs at the University of Maryland are presently dealing with this inventive, minimal effort, earth well disposed thought. The exploration group utilized small wood filaments from yellow pine trees to make test electric cells —and we mean genuinely modest, the tree filaments are a thousand times more slender than a bit of paper. They utilize sodium as opposed to lithium, so the group envisions this electric cell working best in a substantial nature, such as for archiving solar energy at a power plant.

A considerable lot of the electric storage devices utilized today can’t handle the swelling and contracting that happens throughout the charge and release process. Yet this battery can keep going more drawn out than generally nano-electric cells accessible today, averaging more than 400 charging cycles. It’s not exactly prepared to power your cellphone, yet we’re simply talking about 1st generation, there’s a tremendous measure of potential for the what’s to come.
