  • Zn/Cu-vegetative batteries, bioelectrical characterizations, and primary cost analyses

    tingilinde:

  • Primary cost analyses showed that treated Zn/Cu-potato battery generates portable energy at ∼ 9   USD/kW   h, which is 50-fold cheaper than the currently available 1.5 V AA alkaline cell (retail) or D cells (∼ 49 – 84   USD/kW   h).

    tingilinde:

  • We now report on new fundamental studies on GAII in vegetative matter and on a simple way for significant performance improvement of Zn/Cu-vegetative battery.

    tingilinde:

  • Its a Zn-Cu battery with the two rods inserted into a potato.

    You say potato, I say...battery?

  • Volta and Daniell could be playing with the Zn electrode, but it took putting it with a MnO2 electrode to make it a commercial success that endures to this day.

    One battery chemistry to rule them all?
