After many years of the research, the MIT researchers have finally built a new battery type, which is known as “Virus-built battery”.
Virus-built battery is a new form of battery that based on the virus-produced. It has the same energy capacity and power performance as the rechargeable batteries. According to the MIT researchers, they claim that you can use the Virus-built battery to power plug-in hybrid cars and most of the electronic devices too!
Angela Belcher, the MIT materials scientist, who is also the leader of the MIT research team pointed out that the Virus-built battery could be manufactured much faster and cheaper than Lithium-ion battery.
The synthesis of Virus-built battery can take place at or below room temperature and doesn’t need any harmful organic solvents. As a result, all the materials that being used in the Virus-built battery is safe and non-toxic to human being!
Those viruses that contain inside the Virus-built battery are mostly the common bacteriophage. It might have some infection on other bacteria, but it’s totally harmless to users.
The research group has a strong believe that the Virus-built battery could be the next new trend of the rechargeable battery. With the invention of the Virus-built battery, the Li-ion battery will be soon eliminated…
