A small battery that can run on bacteria has been created by a team of researchers from Binghamton University, a member of the State University of New York system. The battery could last for up to a century. A recent paper from Small, a journal covering nanotechnology-related subjects, describes the team’s work.The battery is inspired by work previously conducted by the research team regarding an ingestible battery, where the team was able to create a biobattery that could be ingested and power itself using bacteria in the body. By creating a biobattery that could operate outside the body, the team has now advanced their notion.
