Mushrooms For Batteries?

Better Batteries Might Be Made of Mushrooms

So much of the technology we use every day relies on battery power. 
Whether you own an iPhone, drive a Tesla, or jog wearing Bluetooth headphones, better battery life is probably pretty high on your technological wish list.
Now it turns out that the way to build a better battery might be to use mushrooms.
New research has demonstrated that metal nanoparticles can be attached to mushrooms to create batteries that outperform graphite-based lithium ion-batteries, which are found in essentially every rechargeable electronic device today.
