Tea-Laced Ca­pac­i­tors to Power De­vices

The Economic Times - - Disruption: Startups & Tech -


Sci­en­tists have used green tea com­pounds to de­velop a new flex­i­ble and com­pact recharge­able en­ergy stor­age de­vice which may power more com­fort­able wear­able elec­tron­ics such as heart rate mon­i­tors. More com­fort­able prod­ucts could be­come avail­able in softer ma­te­ri­als made in part with an un­ex­pected in­gre­di­ent — green tea, re­searchers said. “Our ob­jec­tive is to fab­ri­cate wear­ables. Com­press­ible en­ergy stor­age de­vices are the first step,” Kothandam Kr­ish­namoor­thy of CSIR-Net­work of In­sti­tutes for So­lar En­ergy said.
