Saltwater Battery Can Power Your Off Grid Home For 10 Years | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

This new battery runs on saltwater and can power your home for nearly 10 years (3000 days/nights). The best thing is it’s safer for the environment. Not only are the new Aquion batteries are safer for the environment, they are also non-flammable, non-hazardous, and non-explosive, unlike traditional lithium-ion or lead-acid batteries. Because it’s full of saltwater. Last time we checked water was not flammable. I mean they do use it to put out fires and stuff.
