Juice Up Your Batteries With Sugar?

Fuel cell technology that is currently in development boasts the ability of extracting energy from virtually any sugar source to power portable electronics like cellular phones, laptops, and sensors, says PC Magazine. The new technology is expected to be biodegradable, environmentally friendly and more energy efficient than current options and will provide a green alternative to current Lithium-ion batteries.

The cell operates at room temperature and uses enzymes to oxidize sugars, which generates electricity. Apparently researchers have already run the batteries on glucose, flat soft drinks and sweetened drink mixes.

Researchers say the new batteries will operate three times longer on a single charge than current battery technology. Coupled with the news of the new Sanyo rechargeable NiMH batteries that can be charged up to 1,000 times these are pretty exciting times for batteries!
