Batteries store energy and help people in a lot of levels, and so more and more research is being done on how to store energy to attain the maximum benefits of batteries.

The website The Mind Unleashed for instance shared a new study n hem being a potential powerful energy storage. “As hemp makes a comeback in the U.S. after a decades-long ban on its cultivation, scientists are reporting that fibers from the plant can pack as much energy and power as graphene, long-touted as the model material for supercapacitors.”

Unconventional Use

An unconventional use of car battery was meantime shared by website Speed Society. It featured the use of a jumper cable and car batteries as a do-it-yourself emergency welding equipment when you find yourself needing to do a welding job while at a remote location.

“When it comes to welding, a decent amount of equipment is necessary to get the job done. Unfortunately, if you find yourself out on the trails, that equipment isn’t the easiest in the world to haul around. Instead of bringing a big, clunky welder with you everywhere you go, there’s another option that could manage to get you out of a bind in a hurry using only what you have on hand!”

Lithium batteries on the other hand, are also very useful, but could be very deadly for young children. BBC.Com featured a story on a pediatrician warning parents not to leave around button sized batteries as ingesting such could be fatal for very young children. Build Safe

“The most serious cases are associated with Lithium button batteries larger than 20mm (the size of a 10 pence piece) which can cause severe injury within two hours. And they do not have to be damaged, crushed or chewed to cause serious harm.”

Parents have to be wary about these batteries because according to the pediatrician in the report, those who have survived, still suffered life-changing injuries.
