    statinskill2 months ago

    How efficient is this when we want to convert chemical into electric energy? We can create an artificial organ that works along the same principle. Using the electric eel as a starting point. Self trowing stacks of "artificial biologics" that self-maintain themselves in a nutrient/fuel solution and deliver ten watts per cell sustained, 12 cells in a package the size of a USB power bank for say a combined 120W. Perhaps a little more space to contain the refillable solution, controller board and pumps. And this sort of battery may have a substantially longer lifetime because the cells maintain themselves, continually growing replacements while old cells that have become ineffective die off. Somebody in a lab 50 years ahead of what we are allowed to see has likely already done this.
