It can produce power for about eleven years without charging.

Some Joseph Birmingham/ Birmingham Tech  publications :

 this "open source" device its process micronized to nano-scale :

[0019] The nanofluid CPD battery can generate useful amounts of electrical power converting thermal energy from a heat source only a slightly above ambient room temperature air ( ̃100° C. above ambient). This battery should provide an ultra-long or virtually unlimited life battery with a stable, long-life current. This battery can be singular or a plurality of nanofluid CPD cells integrated into electronic devices to transfer heat and generate more power for microelectronic circuits without having an intrinsic corrosive effect.

The key to the Nucell battery is Brown's discovery of a method to harness the magnetic energy given off by the alpha and beta particles inherent in nuclear material.

Alpha and beta particles are produced by the radioactive decay of certain naturally occurring and man-made nuclear material (radionuclides).

The electric charges of the alpha and beta particles have been captured and converted to electricity for existing nuclear batteries, but the amount of power generated from such batteries has been very small.

Alpha and beta particles also possess kinetic energy by successive collisions of the particles with air molecules or other molecules. The bulk of the R&D of nuclear batteries in the past has been concerned with this heat energy which is readily observable and measurable.

                                             Faraday's Law of Induction

He called the induced voltage the induced “electro-motive force”, or induced EMF for short, denoted by EE (you can still find it under this name in many text books). We therefore refer to his findings as Faraday’s Law of Magnetic Induction.

Where I see in the Nano-Boxx information doubts :

 Developed by Birmingham Technologies the Nano-Boxx

consists of two metal plates composed of different metals that are placed less than 10 nanometers apart with a nanofluid in between.

 An electric current is generated when electrons from one plate vaporize and collect on the other plate.

The device that was shown was the size of a postage stamp.

By stacking them the device can scale from milliwatts to megawatts. 8 to 9 of these will power a cell phone, 800-900 a satellite. It can produce power for about eleven years without charging.

as fact we know about thermoelectric batteries,sourced by radio-active material

but for 40 US$/KW output,clearly pure material production costs part,  and over 10 years electricity delivery ?

4000 US$cents/1000 W output = 4 US$cents/W

the Nano-Boxx electric conversion part costs ?

We have as lowest known lab produced thin film PV-converter with estimated 6 US$cents/Wp (Singapore) production costs ! Life-time ?

This invention offer per Wp production costs ?     Epoch-making breakthrough electric generator

One decade back : QUENCO

I have been asked by email a few times now to give details re the quenco but I will not do so until after all the full patents are filed, all the lab work is finished and written up, and certainly not prior to the launch in June, what I am willing to divulge is that quenco is simple and that almost any company of modest size could tool up to make it.

 I estimate in mass production quenco film (using roll to roll ALD) will be less than a cent per Watt,
                                              and I hope we can drive it down to 0.1c /W.


                                                                        1-0,1 cent/Wp

 Polarizing sheets are now articles commercially manufactured by a bulk process at low cost by a large scale special film casting machine, the basic cost being about $1 per m@2 (1984 dollars)

The present invention utilizes a similar bulk process.

The casting composition@3 is modified to employ the special heteropolymer of this invention made on a similar casting machine@4. The cost should be comparable. The extra cost of electroding and laminating will add only a few dollars per m@2

                                                        so the total should be about $5/m@2 (500 w), about 50.cent./sq. ft.

                                                                          = 1 $cent/Wp ( 1984 dollars )

The efficiency will remain in the 60-80% range. Thus solar energy will become available everywhere at about 1.cent./watt; or, an investment cost of $10/KW.

Nano-Boxx compared :

As the year 2011 continued, more tests of the E-Cat took place. One such test was performed by Dr. Levi of the University of Bologna. In one test he performed an E-Cat with a reactor core volume of approximately one liter produced an average 15 kilowatts for 18 hours, utilizing on average less than 100 watts of electrical input. What made this test even more significant, is that during one portion of the test the output spiked to approximately 120 kilowatts for a period of time. To prevent the reactor from getting too hot and melting the nickel powder, the reactor had to be throttled down. This test was not only yet another demonstration that the E-Cat is capable of producing robust amounts of power, but that the power density can be incredible.

More tests were performed as the year went by, and different sizes and designs of E-Cats were built and tested. One such E-Cat had a reactor core of approximately 50 cubic centimeters (the size of a D Cell battery), but had a rated power output of 2.5 kilowatts and a maximum safe output (in torture testing) of 10 kilowatts. These smaller reactors were tested and proven to produce large amounts of power.
