IT HAPPENED! Nuclear Diamond Batteries Finally Hit The Market!
May 1, 2022


Future Unity

Batteries! The invention that powers most of the modern world! Many electronics you enjoy using won't work without them. These include your phone, laptop, tablet, and the electric car in your garage! Some satellites also use batteries out there in orbit! However, these batteries have limitations that affect the level of satisfaction we can derive from them! This is why scientists have been working hard at creating a new battery. The latest result is a diamond battery that has the potential to last for thousands of years and also help eliminate nuclear waste! How does the diamond battery last so long, and how does it work? Join us as we bring scientists' insane new diamond batteries just released! The best battery with ability for a wide range of applications is the lithium-ion battery.

Okay, a couple things I want to point out. Arkenlight was formed by the team at Bristol who discovered diamonds generate a charge when exposed to radioactive material. They then realized that by using carbon-14 to create a synthetic diamond with a few inclusions of more radioactive elements, and then encase it in a regular carbon-12 diamond, they would have self-charging battery that was impossibly durable and would last, without needing replaced, for years, decades, centuries, or longer. Since they are the ones who invented this concept, they learned firsthand that these beta-voltaics are never going to power large objects like cars, planes, or heavy equipment because the rate at which the batteries charge is too slow and the power output is too low for those applications. That's why they're sticking to sensors, integrated electronics and IoT devices. Those applications are far more suited to beta-voltaics and are far more widespread than EVs right now, so by completely eliminating the market for other battery types they generate massive profits, while doing the world a massive service by being paid to process nuclear waste into working technology. They've successfully designed, prototyped, and implemented their batteries on a small scale as they're building the capital necessary to build their mass production plant. Their website states that working C-14 batteries, which would be implemented in IoT devices, are slated to be available sometime in Q3 of 2023, not 2024. If Morgan Boardman actually said otherwise, they need to update their website. Arkenlight patented the entire concept back when the physics was discovered. Nano-Diamond-Battery, Incorporated , aka NDB, Inc., has not produced a working model. They claim to have demonstrated two proof-of-concept devices at Livermore, but Livermore has not confirmed that that actually happened to my knowledge. NDB originally claimed that their batteries would be able to power everything from phones to planes to EVs and would last for tens of thousands of years. However, they have never released a datasheet proving these claims. Not only that, but they actually recanted their claims not long after they made headline news, stating that they'd been misquoted when they said their batteries would power cars. Arkenlight, when they were asked what they thought about NDB, said, very specifically, that there is no way NDB is getting the power output they claim and that, if NDB is telling the truth about their battery physics, they're in clear violation of patent law. Since then, NDB seems to have modified their design enough to satisfy international patent law, but regardless they have yet to provide any actual data backing up their claims. Not too long ago, they sent out an email informing people signed up for their newsletter (which includes me) that they had been granted 3 patents by the US government, but, again, they have not provided any data. Today there are three designs on the NDB website, where they make some very bold and ridiculous claims. For instance, they claim that their NDB cell can give consumer electronics (think smartphones) "the opportunity to raise personal quantum computing." Sorry, but there is no way, within even 25 years, that quantum computing will develop to the point where you can make a phone that has a quantum computer. Its a ridiculous idea not just because that level of technology wont be available for nearly 50 years, but because quantum computers are not suited for everyday web browsing, they're really bad at that actually. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea and I'm really excited to see it implemented on a global scale, but until NDB can put their money where there mouth is and publicly produce working models that can do all the things they claim it can I cannot, in good faith, be excited about NDB.

Uh, no. These batteries produce extremely tiny amounts of power. A few hundred microwatts at best. They are useful for remote sensors and things which require essentially no energy to operate. They aren't useful for anything else. It would take hundreds of millions of these batteries to do anything useful for a home or an EV. Obviously a non-starter. Also, this technology isn't particularly new. They are called beta-voltaics. To put this into perspective, a tiny solar cell with roughly the same footprint as an AA battery produces 3000x more power (750x more energy with 6 hours of sun per day) than one of these nuclear diamond batteries.

Li-Pol (LiPo) are widely used in nearly all Cell phones and other home electronics. Yet, they are unstable and dangerous. In our test, we compare LiPo with available LFP and LTO technologies. You may not recognize the danger sitting in your pocket, but consider the danger for projects involving batteries and prevent future issues. Designing machine, device or tool which uses batteries? Choose wisely! All tested batteries are based on Lithium, however, the additional substances in LFP and LTO provide necessary stabilization and prevent the dangerous behaviour. We tested: Overcharge Short-Circuit Puncture External fire (ignition) The safe LFP and LTO on our shop:
That is going on for over a decade. I think this EV concept has failed already. How long can you wait?
People will still work on it.
EV is not a new concept.
It is there from from 1870..
Then something called Petroleum / Gas came and EV was put aside.
This is ongoing process.
Those who like to switch to EV can do so, but other power sources will be more prominent if something new comes out for current need of green power.

We Had Electric Cars in 1900... Then This Happened.

In this Our Changing Climate climate change video essay, I look at how the electric car was popular in the 1900s and then everything changed. Specifically, I look at how electric cars have been around multiple times and have failed not because of engineering failures but because of cultural and societal issues. Electric cars like Tesla and GM's new electric cars might be the turning point in the road for the electric car, but if we look back at history, the electric car has always faced an uphill battle. Norway's electric car program has been instrumental in showing the world that in order to create an electric car infrastructure, we need to emphasize electric car subsidies, electric car charging stations, and much more. It is possible to transition quickly away from electric cars, we just have to put the effort in to get us there.

Multiple options means that the cost of each option will be high and that means EV will be a failed effort. The whole idea of bringing cost of EVs down was mass adoption of single product. The internal combustion engine never changed over the years. What changed was aerodynamics and car sizes. Multiple types of batteries will also need specialized maintenence products.

EV is not at all a standard product at all in India also.
Each manufacturer is making different type of shape / size / connectors etc.
Chargers are also different.
Car & 2 wheeler companies are making their own shapes /sizes etc. may be following some basic voltage dependent motor but overall they are making totally different products which are not standard at all.

Take a look at Voltage standard that decides the size /size of battery
