“The transparency is tuneable, so it could be as transparent as glass, in principle,” explains Cui. “However, there is a trade-off between transparency and energy density. A reasonable transparency is 50 to 80 per cent.” Such batteries store between a third and a half of the energy of an ordinary battery of the same size, but Cui says increasing the thickness would allow them to provide comparable levels.
