New Advancement : Use sugar to power cell phones

Have you heard of a battery that consumes sugar and that has such a power to run your smartphone for 10 days?
This will be the new wonderful research in the field of electronics that use sugar to power cell phones.


This new invention is done by researchers at "Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University".They have designed a new bio-battery with a greater efficiency than the typical lithium-ion batteries we are using in our day to day life electronics.

This  bio-battery will convert sugar into energy,somewhat similar to our metabolism which decomposes the sugar into carbon dioxide and water while releasing electrons."By using the lithium-ion battery,your smartphone can only last for one day. In the future, it would use sugar as the fuel.By using this type of bio-fuel,it can last for 10 days.

For working efficiently, this new invention by using a novel system of enzymes which are proteins that help the reaction to take place.There are two active enzymes that liberate two pairs of electrons from the sugar while 10 other enzymes help to reset the reaction inside the bio-battery.

Once the reaction is reset, the active enzymes release another quartet of electrons.
After completing  six cycles, the bio-battery extracts all of the energy bound in the sugar molecule along with carbon dioxide and water.

However, scientists are deciding  to deduce few more challenges on the engineering side before bio-batteries are taken up in day-to-day life.

  • In this article I will go through some ways to help you get your fee crowns.
    Be careful though that many websites are providing solutions
    but may do make harm than good. Her servants whispered, she
    was turning vicious, And it shoowed In her voice and hher face.
