China-Based Betavolt Revolutionizes Nuclear Battery Technology

Published: 2.12.2024

A Chinese technology company released its groundbreaking nuclear battery that can generate power with a 50-year lifespan. 

Betavolt utilized nickel-63 decay technology that allows the nuclear battery to generate a steady supply of energy over an extended period. Coupled with diamond semiconductors, enable to miniaturization and modularizing of the battery, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. 

Nuclear batteries function by converting the energy released during the decay of nuclear isotopes into electricity; offering an energy density over 10 times greater than ternary lithium batteries. 

Notably, they are highly stable and do not combust or explode even under extreme conditions, such as puncturing or impact. They can function within a wide temperature range, from -60°C to 120°C, without compromising their performance. 

According to China Daily, Betavolt's nuclear battery has the potential to revolutionize the energy storage industry. The technology's combination of longevity, reliability, and cost-effectiveness makes it an attractive option for a wide range of applications, from consumer electronics to industrial and military applications. 

Betavolt's breakthrough underscores China's commitment to advancing technology and innovation in the energy sector. As the demand for sustainable energy solutions continues to grow, Betavolt's nuclear battery could play a significant role in shaping the future of energy storage.
