Trickle Charge Hybrid Battery

Trickle Charge Hybrid Battery

A variation on the theme of betavoltaic batteries, is the Hybrid Betavoltaic battery. The Hybrid battery consists of a small betavoltaic cell alongside a conventional cell. The betavoltaic cell constantly trickle charges the conventional battery, utilising periods of inactivity to recharge and potentially increase the life span of the battery. This circumvents some of the capacity issues associated with pure Betavoltaic cells, and some would argue, more effectively utilises the betavoltaic battery's attributes.
