Researchers at Stanford University have taken another step in the production of feather-light batteries that have excellent energy storage properties with a new ‘paper battery’ that consists of standard office paper dipped in carbon-nanotube inks. The dipped paper is then air-dried, resulting in a highly conductive, yet lightweight material. Testing of the ‘paper batteries’ shows that they are able to match the performance (duration and power) of current metal batteries, despite weighing much less.

The combination of lightweight and conductive makes the batteries ideal for portable electronics, which require storage of large amounts of energy without weighing down a device.
