Lilliputian Systems invented a microchip-size fuel cell that can run your cell phone for a week.
The U.S. military has had its eye on miniature fuel cells for some time and has financed research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and elsewhere. Given where nanotechnology is headed, it's not inconceivable that they can someday be shrunk down to flea size to power injectable sensors and miniature medical devices.
