Submission + - Non-toxic, paper batteries (

jcr writes: "Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a combination battery/capacitor by infusing carbon nanotubes and electrolytes into a paper substrate. The material can be folded, rolled up, or molded to any convenient shape with no effect on power capacity. Operating temperature range is -100 to 300 degrees Farenheit, which beats any other battery I've ever heard of."
