Scientists create the smallest battery

Researchers have managed to construct the world’s smallest battery and when I say small I mean tiny. The device is allegedly six times smaller than a bacterium and an incredible 60,000 times smaller than a standard AAA battery!

The device was created by scientists at Rice University and is actually a hybrid between a battery and a supercapacitor, which delivers a sudden jolt of energy.

Despite being mind bogglingly miniscule and only at the prototype stage, it could have a big impact on certain sectors, especially medicine as Cnet suggests it could be used to power tiny chemical and biological sensors.
