Student accidentally creates rechargeable battery that lasts 400 years

Lab accident leads to the discovery of a battery that can be used for hundreds of years Researchers at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) have discovered a way to design a battery so it doesn’t lose its charge after years of use. The team found that by using a gold nanowire in electrolyte gel rather than lithium, a battery could withstand 200,000 charging cycles and only lose 5% of its capacity.
