Researchers have demonstrated a flat, "stretchy" battery that can be pulled to three times its size without a loss in performance.

While flexible and stretchable electronics have been on the rise, powering them with equally stretchy energy sources has been problematic.

The new idea in Nature Communications uses small "islands" of energy-storing materials dotted on a stretchy polymer.

The study also suggests the batteries can be recharged wirelessly.

Heh. When I saw the topic header I couldn't figure out if it meant physically stretchy, or a variable lifespan. It serves up only the amount of power you need, and its lifespan depends on power consumption rather than elapsed time. Like a rubber band that gets skinnier when you stretch it.
