<p>Packing peanuts are not peanuts but fill for boxes to protect goods being shipped. They’re made out of starch.</p>
<p>The researchers said the electrodes will outperform conventional graphite electrodes and is a n environmentally friendly approach. <a href="http://channeleye.co.uk/packing-peanuts-used-for-batteries/" class="read_more">more&#187;</a></p><div class="feedflare">
