New Battery Can Stretch By 300 Percent

by / February 27, 2013

Yonggang Huang, an engineer at Northwestern University, and University of Illinois Professor John Rogers created a battery that can stretch up to about 300 percent -- which could ultimately mean that wearable solar cells and electric-eye cameras that make studio-quality photographs are on the horizon, NBC News reported.

 

“Such stretchable batteries enable true integration with stretchable electronics in a small package,” Huang told NBC News in an email.

The primary target for such a battery are medical applications, such as heart monitors threaded into cardiac tissue.
