First 3D printed battery that is the size of a grain of sand and comparable to current commercial batteries

First 3D printed battery that is the size of a grain of sand and comparable to current commercial batteries | Vloasis sci-tech | Scoop.it

A research team from Harvard University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has demonstrated the ability to 3D print a battery. 3D printing can now be used to print lithium-ion microbatteries the size of a grain of sand. The printed microbatteries could supply electricity to tiny devices in fields from medicine to communications, including many that have lingered on lab benches for lack of a battery small enough to fit the device...
