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.
