Scientists have developed a self-destructing battery capable of dissolving when exposed to heat or liquid.

It delivers 2.5 volts and can power a desktop calculator for 15 minutes.

It could power medical devices in patients’ bodies before degrading, or keep military secrets confidential.

Iowa State University mechanical engineering professor Reza Montazami said it was the first practical transient battery.
