All the living beings cells break down Sugar to produce energy, Actually the scientists has created this sugar bio battery completely which converts the chemical energy in the sugar into electricity for the purpose of long lasting batteries for Smartphones and Gadgets.
This bio battery we can achieve an energy storage density of 596 ampere hours per (A/h) kilograms, order of magnitude higher than the 42 A-h per kg of energy density of lithium ion battery used in various gadgets.
[quote]”An associate professor YH Percival Zhang from Virginia Polytechnic and state university popularly known as Virginia Tech says that this bio battery has high energy density could last at least 10 times longer than the existing lithium ion batteries of same weight.”[/quote]
Actually this bio battery is a type of enzyme fuel cell EFC, it mean an electro chemical device which converts the chemical energy form starch or glucose and converts into Electricity.
[quote]”Professor also reports : we are the first demonstrating this complete oxidation of the bio battery’s sugar so we achieve a near theoretical energy conversion yield that no one else.”[/quote]
Some of the advantages of this bio battery is that it is very less in cost when compares to ion batteries, also environmental friendly. Stay tune for more updates and details.
