China's first civilian nuclear energy battery is about to be mass-produced and can be used for 50 years, far ahead in the world

On January 8, a technology company in Beijing announced that it had successfully developed a new civilian nuclear energy battery that can stably generate electricity for 50 years without charging or any maintenance. It has now entered the pilot stage and is about to be mass-produced.

Founded in April 2021, this technology company is a high-tech enterprise integrating R&D, production, service, sales, and import and export trade. Its main products include atomic energy batteries, fourth-generation diamond semiconductors and materials, ultra-long carbon nanotubes and supercapacitors.

In less than 3 years, a start-up company has developed the world's leading civilian nuclear energy battery, which is really shocking.

Is it difficult to develop nuclear energy batteries?

As early as 1913, British physicist Henry Moseley invented nuclear battery technology, but due to its low energy efficiency, there has been no major breakthrough.

It was not until 1959 that Americans developed the world's first radioisotope battery. Subsequently, nuclear energy battery technology advanced by leaps and bounds, especially in the space field.

On July 21, 1969, the United States installed two 15-watt nuclear energy batteries on the Apollo 11 spacecraft, the first human landing on the moon, but their purpose was to keep astronauts warm overnight.

On the Apollo 14 launched in 1970 and the subsequent Apollo 15, 16, 17 and other spacecraft, nuclear energy batteries with a power of 63.5 watts were installed one after another. They were mainly used to generate electricity.

On March 12, 1971, my country's first independently developed nuclear energy battery was successfully born at the Shanghai Institute of Atomic Nuclear Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Nuclear energy batteries were used for the first time in the Chang'e-3 lunar landing rover in 2013, becoming the third country to use nuclear energy after the United States and Russia. Countries that apply power to space exploration.

Not only in the space field, but also in the medical field, nuclear energy batteries have also been widely used.

For example, in the field of pacemakers, tens of thousands of heart disease patients around the world have been implanted with pacemakers driven by nuclear energy batteries. A tiny 100-gram battery can ensure that the pacemaker works in patients. It can work continuously in the body for more than 10 years, which is unmatched by traditional batteries.

Therefore, nuclear energy batteries are not as advanced as imagined.

What is the performance of the BV100 nuclear battery developed by Betavolt this time?

What? 100 microwatts?

What can 100 microwatts do?

A mobile phone, in normal standby mode, only retains a few background applications such as WeChat, phone and camera, and the average standby power consumption is about 60 milliwatts.

100 microwatts equals 0.1 milliwatts. This nuclear battery cannot even meet the most basic standby requirements.

Of course, nuclear batteries can be stacked, but to meet the standby demand, 600 nuclear batteries are needed!

Not to mention the scenario where the phone requires 10 watts under heavy use. A 100 microwatt nuclear battery is a joke.

However, according to the outlook of Betavolt's chairman, the company will launch a 1-watt nuclear battery next year.

Although it cannot be applied to mobile phones yet, it is still sufficient for use on headphones, watches and bracelets.

In the future, with the advancement of technology and the reduction of costs, it is still very possible to use nuclear energy batteries in mobile phones.

The question is, are nuclear batteries safe?

It's very safe, thousands of heart disease patients have used it, don't worry.

According to the company's chairman and CEO, this nuclear battery has a volume of 15 X 15 X 5 cubic millimeters, smaller than a coin, a voltage of 3V, and a power of 100 microwatts.

Once nuclear energy batteries are used on a large scale, humans will be free from the constraints of power sources. By then, mobile phones that don’t need to be charged for 50 years, computers that don’t need to be charged for 50 years, cars that don’t need to be charged for 50 years, and cars that don’t need to be charged for 50 years... I can’t even imagine that.
