Next-Gen Battery Could Harness The Power Of Black Holes

It has been discovered that the ultimate sci-fi battery could harness the power of black holes. Here are the mind-blowing details about this below.

Batteries that could harness the power of black holes

The pursuit to generate more energy using fewer resources, while also minimizing the usage of fossil fuels is giving rise to some innovative ideas.

Nuclear fusion records are being broken, although only by small increments and for brief periods. At the same time, advancements in solar panels are making them increasingly efficient as expected.

The installation of solar panels on car parks and green roofs is becoming more strategic, resulting in greater energy gains.

Storing energy and releasing it as needed across the electricity grid remains a significant challenge, despite the increase in battery storage and manufacturing capacity leading to lower prices.

Theoretical scientists are known to be imaginative when it comes to predicting future trends and technological innovations.

Recently, two physicists have been exploring the theoretical limits of battery energy density based on Einstein’s general theory of relativity.

To create stable energy storage, we need tiny charged black holes, each with just one Planck mass.

These black holes should be bundled together into cells that are packed with similarly charged black holes.

When these cells are formed, their electromagnetic repulsion offsets the pull of gravity, which prevents them from gobbling themselves up. It’s worth noting that more massive black holes are less energy-dense than tiny ones.

In theory, if micro black holes with opposite charges are brought together, one by one, they would merge into a single black hole that rapidly turns into pure energy.

The extracted energy won’t come from within the black hole, but from just outside it, where gravity is concentrated.

It is possible that tiny, primordial black holes exist, although they have never been detected. This could be due to the fact that they have lost most of their energy after forming in the early plasma that filled the Universe after the Big Bang.

It is unlikely that we will ever see ‘micro black hole batteries’ as it remains purely hypothetical. It serves more as an indication of how much further battery technology needs to progress, rather than a realistic future development.
