Recharging Batteries

Maple Electric

future technology     Our future technology could be powered by an unusual source of energy.

Research by scientists at the University of Washington have discovered more good reasons to hug trees.
     The bioelectric properties of trees are a natural source of energy to power electronic circuits. This source of power could be used to recharge our gadgets.
Small amounts of voltage are generated in trees but a voltage booster designed at the University generated a 1.1 volt from maple trees.
     Because of the constant advances in electronics our smart phones require less and less power, so the voltage from trees is now a viable source for recharging our batteries.
