Take a look around Trend Hunter and you'll see that there's no lack of innovation or imagination, so it shouldn't be a shock to find that there are dozens of innovative batteries in the mix.

Charge through this list and you'll find batteries that get power from sugar, light, air, and even pee. There are paper and ink batteries, bacteria batteries and nuclear batteries. Innovative batteries are everywhere!

Implications - Batteries have the potential to exponentially increase the viability of alternate energy by storing power produced during peak production for use at a later time. The smaller, cheaper, more lightweight a battery can be made, the more potential it has for use in everything from electric vehicles to home power generation.
