Japanese Researchers Design Flexible Nano Battery
The innovative battery was designed by Hiroyuki Nishide, Hiroaki Konishi and Takeo Suga at Waseda University. The battery is both paper-thin and rechargeable, thanks to its polymer-based construction. There is a high demand for these types of small, flexible batteries because of ever-advancing electronic devices. The researchers believe that their flexible battery could be integrated into devices by 2010.
