    Saw a link for nuclear powered batteries for sale:

    http://www.ubergizmo.com/2013/01/atomic-battery-on-sale-for-consumer-use

    I would be interested to see a smartphone with some of these batteries built into it. No charging for the lifetime of the device!

    What does this mean? What is your definition of nuclear in a non technical sense?

    What the media tells people. That 'nuclear' can ONLY mean some world ending device.

    Now back to having a battery with a three year charge :D

    Haha. Gotcha. Maybe i'm scientifically incline but my definition of nuclear would be something which undergoes radioactive decay and not the doomsday phone you mention :D

    And they write:
    The glow is also possible without tritium.

    That requires an input of energy (like a flashlight).

    Tritium is self glowing so to speak.

    Tritium is great... in very minute quantities. On gun sights or watch arms, a very tiny amount is painted on to the surface. Very little harm can be done with tiny amounts. I don't know about an amount as big as that battery?

    is it just an improvement or remarketing of the earlier technolog that was offering shorter charge time but less power per volume or weight of the battery?
