Next, they measured how much energy could be packed into the tiny batteries, how much power they could deliver, and how long they held a charge. "The electrochemical performance is comparable to commercial batteries in terms of charge and discharge rate, cycle life and energy densities. We're just able to achieve this on a much smaller scale," Dillon said.

"Jennifer's innovative microbattery ink designs dramatically expand the practical uses of 3D printing, and simultaneously open up entirely new possibilities for miniaturisation of all types of devices, both medical and non-medical. It's tremendously exciting," said Wyss Founding Director Donald Ingber, who is also a Professor of Bioengineering at Harvard SEAS.
