Tea-Laced Capacitors to Power Devices
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.
