Nano diamond batteries, or NDBs for short, are self-charging cells powered by nuclear waste, capable of lasting up to 28,000 years. The batteries are designed and manufactured by Silicon Valley-based nanotechnology company NDB. NDB’s vision includes powering a sustainable future and providing a reliable, cost effective alternative energy source.

Radioactive isotopes, such as those found in nuclear reactors, are used to power the NDBs. Isotopes from recycled nuclear waste release significant amounts of energy particles, which can be turned into usable energy. The battery's radioactive core is shielded with multiple layers of lab-grown, synthetic diamonds. Energy is absorbed by the diamond through inelastic scattering, where it can then be used to charge the battery.

According to Energy Live News’ report on the NDBs, the batteries can be used to power a broad variety of devices and machines, ranging from smartphones to aircrafts.
