Default The 28,000 Year Battery

I looked through previous discussions for batteries but only found passing mentions in fusion and alternate energy threads. This technological concept, first proposed in 2016 by the University of Bristol Cabot Institute is exactly what I envision as the type of game changer that BM could (would) have brought back for the Project to exploit.

From Tech Brief:
“The Nano Diamond Battery (NDB) is a high-power, diamond-based alpha, beta, and neutron voltaic battery that can provide lifelong and green energy for numerous applications and overcome limitations of existing chemical batteries. The NDB acts like a tiny nuclear generator. The power source for the NDB is intermediate- and high-level radio isotopes that are shielded for safety by multiple levels of synthetic diamond. The energy is absorbed in the diamond through a process called inelastic scattering, which is used to generate electricity. The self-charging process will provide a charge for the full lifetime of any device or machine, with up to 28,000 years of battery life.”

There are several other articles available via Popular Mechanics, ZM Science, AZO Nano among others.
