The company has invented a new battery with nano diamonds that uses nuclear waste and that can last from 100 to 28 thousand years
Computers, smartphones, watches and cars, bikes, scooters. Technology has evolved until today transforming many objects of daily use into electrical devices. The same trend is observed with the means of transport where from the scooter to the truck you can now find versions with electric motors. The biggest discomfort related to electronics is the recharging and autonomy time. In some fields, such as automobiles, it is still a big stumbling block. More capacious batteries, less heavy and with greater storage capacity would allow the definitive development of many inventions and technology.
So imagine having a battery that never runs out. We could have a smartphone that never has to be recharged, a car with infinite autonomy and much more. The Californian company NDB has presented a new battery that bodes well for the achievement of this utopia. NDB is producing a nano diamond battery that works like a tiny nuclear generator and is powered by nuclear waste.
The company claims that their batteries can last from a few decades up to 28 thousand years and would cost less than the lithium-ion batteries currently used in electric cars. The benefits go beyond the promised lifetime. Batteries are environmentally friendly because they use waste material from nuclear power plants, which is usually difficult to dispose of. In addition to nuclear material, the battery only needs to be in contact with air to work. NDB can power engines of all sizes and potentially has endless practical applications.
