In a groundbreaking development, Chinese start-up Betavolt claims to have created a revolutionary battery that can generate electricity for an impressive 50 years without the need for charging or maintenance. The innovative nuclear battery, smaller than a coin, packs 63 isotopes and is being hailed as the world’s first realization of atomic energy miniaturization.

Betavolt is currently testing the next-generation battery, with plans for mass production targeting various commercial applications such as phones, drones, aerospace, AI equipment, medical devices like pacemakers, microprocessors, advanced sensors, small drones, and micro-robots.

The compact dimensions of the battery, measuring 15 x 15 x 5 millimeters, are achieved through wafer-thin layers of nuclear isotopes and diamond semiconductors. While currently generating 100 microwatts of power at 3 volts, Betavolt aims to achieve a 1-watt power output by 2025.

Emphasizing the battery’s safety, Betavolt assures that the radiation poses no threat to the human body, making it suitable for medical applications. The technology behind the battery taps into the energy from decaying isotopes, converting it into electricity. This groundbreaking innovation aligns with China’s commitment to miniaturize nuclear batteries under its 14th Five-Year Plan.

The layered design of the battery not only prevents fire or explosions due to sudden force but also enables its functionality in a broad temperature range from -60 degrees Celsius to 120 degrees Celsius.

Betavolt underscores the environmental friendliness of their atomic energy batteries, as the isotopes transform into a stable, non-radioactive isotope of copper after the decay period, posing no threat or pollution to the environment.

As the company completes testing and secures necessary clearances, the anticipation is high for the mass production of this transformative nuclear battery. China aims to gain a significant edge in the AI technological revolution with this groundbreaking energy innovation.
