I'd be curious to know how big the diamonds need to be, or how big they could possibly get. Is there a theoretical maximum amount of energy they could safely achieve in one application? Like, could it ever safely power a vehicle? Or even just a laptop or cell phone?

Either way, it's an awesome discovery.

I work in an industry that will be decimated if this technology takes off. This is awesome and hope it takes off. I'm aware of my hypocrisy but carbon neutral forms of energy (right now nuclear is our only one and i don't care to argue otherwise) is the only way we fix our energy and climate crisis. I'll never sacrifice the human existence over the planet, but if we are going to be stewards of the earth and promote maximum human benefit, nuclear energy is the only way.

Mobile devices that never need charged, perhaps even laptops.

Efficiency and, presumably, size is still a long way away.  But the supply of rare metals for batteries and other electronics is a huge problem, so this would definitely help.

Makes me think of some of that SyFy stuff where they find ancient alien tech thousands of years old that still powers up....
