China Develops Nuclear Battery that can Last 50 Years without Charging

January 21, 2024

Betavolt, a Chinese startup, has announced that it has developed a revolutionary battery, BV100, capable of providing continuous power for an impressive 50 years without requiring re-charging.

This nuclear battery has the potential to revolutionize the electronics industry and shape the way we interact with technology.

Termed as the world’s first miniaturized atomic energy system, this nuclear battery utilizes 63 nuclear isotopes compactly arranged within a module smaller than a coin.

The initial nuclear battery developed by Betavolt delivers 100 microwatts of power and has a voltage of 3V, while measuring a tiny 15x15x5 cubic millimeters. The company plans to produce a battery with 1 watt of power by 2025. The small size of these batteries allows for multiple units to be connected, increasing the power output. Betavolt envisions a future where mobile phones never need to be charged and drones can fly indefinitely.

Aside from a lengthy lifespan, the battery is also said to perform well under extreme conditions. Betavolt claims that their layered structure prevents the battery from catching fire or exploding when subjected to sudden force. Additionally, the battery can operate in a wide temperature range, from -60 degrees Celsius to 120 degrees Celsius.
