According to an article on Engadget, Japanese inventor Susumu Suzuki and company recently demonstrated a water-powered battery at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The batteries are built from mostly carbon-based compounds which are activated by a tiny amount of water and can supposedly last longer than a traditional battery without degrading (according to a crave article, the units can be recycled several times as well) and could cost about one tenth the price of a current battery if mass produced. The batteries themselves would provide about the same amount of stored energy as a standard manganese dioxide battery.
Additional details were hard to come by, but the creators at the CES booth cited that many patents had been obtained for the device.
