Wearable Microgrid Uses the Human Body to Power Small Gadgets

Wearable Microgrid Uses the Human Body to Power Small Gadgets

Nanoengineers have developed a "wearable microgrid" that harvests and stores energy from the human body to power small electronics. It consists of three main parts: sweat-powered biofuel cells, motion-powered devices called triboelectric generators, and energy-storing supercapacitors. All parts are flexible, washable and can be screen printed onto clothing.

Flexible, Screen Printed Rechargeable Battery with 10 Times More Power

Flexible, Screen Printed Rechargeable Battery with 10 Times More Power

A team of researchers has developed a flexible, rechargeable silver oxide-zinc battery with a five to 10 times greater areal energy density than state of the art. The battery also is easier to manufacture; while most flexible batteries need to be manufactured in sterile conditions, under vacuum, this one can be screen printed in normal lab conditions. The device can be used in flexible, stretchable electronics for wearables as well as soft robotics.

Flexible Self-Charging Battery Under Development

Flexible Self-Charging Battery Under Development

Strategic Elements Ltd subsidiary Australian Advanced Materials has agreed to develop a self-charging battery technology through its collaboration with the University of New South Wales and CSIRO. The Battery cells create electricity from humidity in the air or skin surface to self-charge themselves within minutes.

Blackstone Passes Crucial Milestones for Printed Next Gen Batteries

Blackstone Passes Crucial Milestones for Printed Next Gen Batteries

The battery factories being built today have a weakness - their battery cell production lines only produce one battery cell form factor. These assembly systems are very special and expensive. The manufacturing process of the electrodes is energy-intensive and dangerous solvents are used.

Supercapacitors replacing small batteries

Supercapacitors replacing small batteries

After a troubled past, the supercapacitor market of around $400 million is beginning to stir, partly because the majority of supercapacitors are now non-flammable, many times the reliability and life of batteries, and non-toxic.
