Pee Powered Batteries On Sale in Japan

Posted on September 9, 2007

In February we talked about a Pee Powered battery that was in the testing phase in Japan. Now it would seem they have made it to the store for the Japanese to buy and use.

NoPoPo (Non-Pollution Power) Aqua Batteries are available in both AA and AAA form, although the company page shows they are producing the technology for all sizes of battery, and can only be currently purchased in Japan.

The batteries can be recharged with various different fluids using the new development which forms electric power using liquid as a catalyst.

The basic principle is that a mixture of magnesium and carbon reacts when mixed with a liquid to produce, in the case of the AA battery, up to 500 milliamp-hours (mAh) of life.

Each time the battery is recharged it has a lower power level than the time before and the life cycle allows for about 3 to 5 recharges before disposing of the battery. Each battery can potentially keep its charge for up to 10 years which could be great for many life saving devices in remote locations.

Since the battery does not contain mercury and other harmful materials, it can be easily disposed of without worry for the environment.

So the next time your batteries let you down, just pee on them. (*Will probably help if they are produced by NoPoPo.)

3-5 recharges and its garbage? NoPoPo my arse! I don't care if don't got mercury...thats a lot more batteries going to the trash than with conventional rechargeables (1000 charges!). DUH! NoPoPo = worthless crap. Somebody needs to go back to the drawing board. This is not economically viable!

Hi, Thanks for writing such a great article. It’s really good to know about drug rehab in such a detail. It all begins with the idea to try how it feels when you take a sip of alcohol. It was not only depends a mouthful, so that increases the desire of some of the drink. And that is how we become dependent, and soon will need Alcohol Detox and rehabilitation. People like the use of alcohol as a fashion and show their position in principle and is now a drug for them. Sad is that some are not able to achieve. But some are not able or their bad habit or you decide not able to stop what they do with themselves. People who have an addiction to alcohol can do Alcohol Detox. And place that can facilitate the Addiction Treatment is Treatment Solutions Network or www.treatmentsolutionsnetwork.com. By doing Alcohol Detox, alcohol addicts will understand how to overcome the desire to drink alcohol again. And with the desire to recover, usually will accelerate recovery for the patient’s own self. In addition, Opiate Detox can also be done to remove toxins from the body, this can be done if the patient has both alcohol and drugs dependence. Thanks, - Andrew Morales

Hi , Thanks for writing such an interesting article. Its really good to know about the batteries in detail. Seriously do we realize how many things in your house that need batteries? Let’s count it, from the flashlight, cell phone, iPod, cameras, and many more. Knowing it should make us realize on how essential the presence of the batteries in our daily life. However, with that so many kinds of battery, which is generally different between one to another, sometimes we have some difficulties in finding the desired type. Find the right batteries supplier is not hard if you check out batterystation.co.uk because this website provides the widest selection of batteries and you can choose the right battery based on the categories. You can get the procell batteries which available in several sizes and voltage. You also can find Duracell batteries that divided into duracell plus batteries and duracell ultra batteries. All of the batteries come with cheaper price because this website provides the discount batteries in bulk, wholesale, and retail quantities. Thanks, - Andrew Morales

Actually, this idea is as old as World War II. The SOE had a similar model in a radio battery. Nothing new here

Hi Guys, Anyone knows where I can get it in Japan. Will be glad if someone can provide me the address. Thanks in advance.

Anybody can actually read the label said, "Emengency Water Batteries"? It doesn't say you can keep charging it over and over for 10 years or hold charge for 10 years, it said, "Long Term Preservable up to 10 years". If you want to keep it in your Emergency Preparedness Kit, go for it. If you want to power you digital, hand off it.

y not the fix it on the toilet bowl?pee or use hand washing water to recharge the battery rather than wasting electricity on the flush sensor!haha.

Yes, a Ni-Mh battery can be charged 1000 times but it requires wall power to recharge. These batteries simply require water to recharge them. I.e. they're basically about the equivilent of standard alkaline batteries in overall lifespan (after the 3-5 recharges) and then you trash them. But they may be better for the environment than alkalines when disposed of and/or recycled.

but 500 milliamp-hours (mAh) is very poor for a digital camera now a minimal 2000 (mAh) is average and only use for 3 to 5 recharges before disposing of the battery is very poor for a rechageable battery . a battery Ni-Mh is average a 1000 cycles.

Since clear sensationalism is beyond anyone in the comments here... Pee Powered Batteries are not marketed as being powered by Pee. They run on any liquid.. But.. the point is if it runs on liquid then pee would work... Thus if you were hiking and had no water and needed a battery you could pee on these batteries and they would recharge.. So they are pee powered batteries in our book.

How do you fill it up, though. AAA might be a problem. For me at least.

They have to come up with some sort of funnel for the smaller batteries. Fortunatly they can keep selling the batteries in Asia as AAA will not cause any problems.
