Nowadays batteries are one of our biggest concerns, if not the biggest. Expressions like these can be uttered with such a desperate feeling that we would think someone is about to die: "My battery is flat", "Your car battery is dead, I'm afraid", "The battery of my mobile phone is too low", "The TV remote control has run out! How are we change channels?".... And now the problem becomes more and more serious with the appearance of electrical cars.
