The Smallest Battery Is 60,000 Times Smaller Than AAA Battery

Researchers at Rice University has created a super small battery that is about six time thinner than a bacterium, or about 60,000 times smaller than an AAA battery. This is an amazing breakthrough as it has opened the door to a brand new world. Though I’m not sure how long this type battery can last, but I believe the researchers have thought about it too. It has made the innovation of micro-size devices (perhaps some kind of spy robot/flies) possible and a lot more possibility to create very small device that could be properly powered with this smallest battery.

This World’s smallest battery is actually a cross between a battery and super capacitor technology. The researchers even goes further describing:

“The idea here is to fabricate nanowire energy storage devices with ultrathin separation between the electrodes,” said Arava Leela Mohana Reddy, a research scientist at Rice and co-author of the paper. “This affects the electrochemical behavior of the device. Our devices could be a very useful tool to probe nanoscale phenomenon.”

Imagine that you can have your own super stealth flies robot like in the G-Force movie. That would be cool (or dangerous) as everyone can be the secret agent in the neighborhood! :)

Well, if you need more information regarding this smallest battery you can find at Rice University‘s website.
