The American company NDB has come up with a prototype of a battery that is thousands of years old to automatically charge. The company has been developing and manufacturing nano diamond batteries, which are clean and green environment friendly. NDB has successfully tested the concept of its nano diamond batteries.
One of the tests was performed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the other at Cambridge University’s Cavendish Laboratory. In both tests, NDB’s battery technology managed 40 percent of the charge. The latter result is a much larger improvement than the standard commercial diamond’s 15 percent charge collection efficiency. This exploration by NDB will create a new proprietary nano diamond treatment. This will help to make a battery by extracting a very good electrical charge from the diamond. The basic purpose of this development is to commercialize the battery life up to a maximum of 28,000 years. It is made from carbon 14 nuclear waste wrapped in synthetic diamonds.
This battery does not emit carbon while working. It needs open air to work. It is technically a battery as its charge can be used. The one-time charge is longer than the lifespan of the device. So it is also a kind of charge free solution. NDB expects the battery to be a usable power source. So that even ordinary people can use it. The NDB aims to use it on aircraft, EVs, trains and small devices such as smartphones, small industrial sensors that can be worn.
The company is currently working on a prototype of the first commercial battery. The company plans to make it public by next year.
