A Chinese startup has unveiled “nuclear” batteries  

  • Low-power gadgets can be fueled by Betavolt Technology‘s “BB100” radioactive decay battery.
  • The company wants to create batteries that can produce a full watt and have modular options.
  • The technology has unquestionable potential and could completely change the way we charge our electronics.

Low-power gadgets like sensors and drones can be fueled by Betavolt Technology’s “BB100” radioactive decay battery.

The material has a promising answer for long-term device powering—it incorporates radioactive nickel encased in synthetic diamond.

Nuclear batteries 

The Chinese business Betavolt Technologies is creating a novel kind of battery that runs on radioactive decay, akin to the technology seen in spaceships and pacemakers.

Measuring about 15x15x5 mm, the “BB100” battery produces enough power to power low-power gadgets like sensors and tiny drones. The company wants to create batteries that can produce a full watt and have modular options for increased energy demands within two years.

The key to the battery’s extended lifespan is the radioactive nickel, which is shielded from radiation and dangerous chemicals by an artificial diamond layer.

The technology has unquestionable potential and could completely change the way we charge our electronics, even if it is still in its early stages of development. To keep our devices operating for decades, we need to figure out how to harness the power of the atom.
