from the e-packages dept
An Israeli company has created paper-thin batteries that can be printed on packages. This seems pretty cool – except that most of the uses discussed appear to be for marketing things. Yes, soon expect consumer products to blink and flash and sing at you. You would think someone could come up with a better use for something like this. It’s not clear from the article how strong the battery is or how long it will last. If it’s actually pretty powerful then there could be a ton of potential uses for it.
Comments on “Paper Batteries”
The stuff is supposedly safe to discard but I imagine it would prevent recycling of anything it was printed on. What a shame!
Some technical data and more detailed explanations are available on the Power Paper website. It functions as a 1.5 V battery, but there are no costs listed – I would assume anyway that you can’t purchase them individually.
Re: Some data
HowStuffWorks.com has a great explanation of these batteries. Go to this page.

Hmm… wonder if AC has any vested interest in howstuffworks? Could you tell me where that info is again AC? 😉
No Subject Given
you should read Howstuffworks. They reported on these batteries a month ago.
