Batteries that may be a new boost to electric cars made from rhubarb!

Batteries that may be a new boost to electric cars made from rhubarb!

There is an article by some scientists at this site, and the batteries will carry more current and last longer than currently used batteries. They do not have heating problems and are liquid!

That's about 1/6 of current lithium-ion. Not very useful for cars for that reason. Could be useful for other purposes.
