“Both zinc and lignin are super cheap, and the battery is easily recyclable,” said Khan in the press release. “If you calculate the cost per usage cycle, it becomes an extremely cheap battery compared to lithium-ion batteries.”

Unlike other zinc-based batteries that discharge in just a few hours, the newly made battery can retain its charge for a week. Additionally, the battery is stable and maintains 80 percent of its performance even over the course of 8,000 cycles.
