Construction & structure Development Applications Advantages Dis-advantages Conclusion

Paper batteries will replace the conventional batteries & li-ion batteries Anatomy of the paper is based on the use of carbon Nano-tubes tiny cylinders to collect electric charge

Paper as a medium is well designed structure of millions of interconnected fibers in it. These fibers can hold on CNT easily

A very brief explanation has been provided. Cathode: Carbon Nanotube (CNT)

Anode: Lithium metal (Li+)

Electrolyte: All electrolytes (incl. bio electrolytes

like blood, sweat)

Separator: Paper (Cellulose)

Step 1 Any zerox paper & carbon nano ink is taken Step 2 carbon nano ink is spread on one side of the paper

step 3 paper is kept inside the oven a 150c temp. This

evaporates water content on the paper, so that paper &

carbon nano rods get attached each other

Step 4 After drying, the paper becomes flexible, light weight and can withstand from -75c to 150c

As alternate to conventional batteries in gadgets we can make Powered smart cards like RF ID tags, E- cards, E-greetings, talking

posters, pacemakers in the heart

It can be Rolled, twisted, folded or cut into numerous shapes

No loss of integrity/efficiency
Light weight Bio degradable & non toxic It can be a super capacitor

Carbon nanotubes are very expensive Batteries with large enough power are unlikely to be cost effective For a commercial viabilities, these batteries have to scaled up to sheets of newspaper size Replacing the old batteries results wastage of old electronic goods

The life of battery is an important parameter which decides the area of application of battery. These paper batteries can further reduce the weight of the E-gadgets. The future may allow simply painting the nano tube ink & active materials on to surface of the walls. High storage of energy leads to decrease charging time, thus energy can be saved.
