This fruit battery has an energy-efficient silicon to hold a charge by using an ordinary pomegranate. This natural concept tends to react with a battery's electrolytes to gunk up the circuits. The silicon can apparently store up to ten times as much charge as existing rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The use of pomegranate has a natural reaction as Stanford scientists drew inspiration from the way that pomegranate seeds come in clusters.
Many experiments showed that the pomegranate-inspired anode operates at 97 percent capacity even after 1,000 cycles of charging and discharging. This enables extensive power without the need of using an actual charger. A fruit battery pack would almost be equivalent to an ordinary battery as a significant difference in charging speeds that could make changes in the future.
