The materials are safer than the ones in lithium-ion batteries, which can catch fire in certain situations. “Our battery has everything else you’d dream that a battery should have: inexpensive electrodes, good safety, high-speed charging, flexibility and long cycle life,” Hongjie Dai, a chemistry professor at Stanford who’s leading the research, told to the media describing the product. The research team has to increase the power of this electric source  and they hope that “improving the cathode material could eventually increase the voltage and energy density.” The result of the research was published in the online edition of the journal ‘Nature.’ A demo video was posted at YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKIcYk7E9lU). A team of researchers at Stanford University previously created a ‘paper battery.’ Technical description for this says: ‘ when ordinary office paper coated is coated with an inky layer of carbon nanotubes or nanowires, it will become lightweight, flexible and highly conductive battery or superconductor.’
