Two European theoretical physicists have shown that it may be possible to build a near-perfect, entangled quantum battery. In the future, such quantum batteries might power the tiniest of devices or provide power storage that is much more efficient than state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery packs.

"In theory, according to Alicki and Fannes, it should be possible to build a quantum battery that is full of energy-rich quantum states — and then, somehow, recharge it when you run out of juice."

Reminds me of the old cartoon with the solution to everything, including the creation of the universe, where the key info on the chalkboard is a parenthetical statement... (and then a miracle happens).
