Researchers at University of California, Irvine have designed a battery which will run for generations, by mistake.
[junkie-alert style=”green”] A student of UCI “Mya Le Thai” was trying to develop a rechargeable battery but made a battery which scientists believe can last for 400 years. She was experimenting with nanowires of gold embedded when she prepared this battery. [/junkie-alert]
But the head of Chemistry department at the university said that such batteries will not be available for commercial production in recent years because they are very expensive.
He said that the production cost will be high especially because of gold embedded nanowires which are needed for such batteries.
The experiment is in early stages and the scientists at the university are trying to change some designs so that long life battery can be produced with less cost.
