For the first time, MIT researchers have shown they can genetically engineer viruses to build both the positively and negatively charged ends of a lithium-ion battery.
The new virus-produced batteries have the same energy capacity and power performance as state-of-the-art rechargeable batteries being considered to power plug-in hybrid cars, and they could also be used to power a range of personal electronic devices, said Angela Belcher, the MIT materials scientist who led the research team.

I always get a red flag when I hear anything man made that has to do with genetically engineering what is found in nature.
At the end it will turn against humanity, to affect us in one way or the other.
Just batteries nothing to fear in a battery.
