New Technology : Sugar can be used to charge mobile batteries for 10 days.

No one can predict what will happened in Technology.Now technology reasearcher found different solution to charge your mobile batteries.The substance they have used to charge mobile batteries is "Sugar".Sugar is use to add artificial sweetness to food.We never thought that sugar can be used to charge your mobile batteries.This is more than miracle.
     Researchers at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University developed bio-battery gets charged by Sugar.Once this bio-battery gets charged it takes 10 days to discharge.Researchers claims that their battery provides more electricity output as compared to  output provided by normal Lithium-ion battery.
    The prototype version has potential to be more powerful than batteries we saw in today's portable electronics, including smartphones, tablets.Also it is more lighter than normal mobile batteries.From the view of chemistry , "Sugar is type of Carbohydrates, composed from chemical mixture of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.There are 387 calories in 100gm of Sugar. "
      A bio-battery converts sugar into energy - much like our metabolism - decomposing sugar into carbon dioxide and water while releasing electrons.
     "By using the lithium-ion battery, for example, your phone can only last for one day. In the future, it would use sugar as the fuel. Then the phone could last 10 days,” explained Zhiguang Zhu, a researcher at Virginia Tech.
      The new bio-battery gets its efficiency by using a novel system of enzymes, which are proteins that help the reaction to take place, Inside Science News Service (ISNS) reported.The system uses two active enzymes that liberate two pairs of electrons from the sugar, while 10 other enzymes help to reset the reaction inside the bio-battery.Once the reaction is reset, the active enzymes release another quartet of electrons.After six cycles, the bio-battery extracts all of the energy bound in the sugar molecule, along with carbon dioxide and water.
