"The battery design, featured in the Oct. 23 edition of Nature Communications, uses a mix of abundant, inexpensive materials, including forms of carbon and copper in the electrodes, and a liquid solution composed of sodium and potassium."
Sounds almost like burnt bones and blood. The new technology could be the B3 battery. Unfortunately, like many other lab proof of concept devices, scaling up to an industrial production model may be the point of failure.
