It reads a bit like an April Fool's story, although it would be absolutely marvellous if such a thing could actually be made. And a great use for an otherwise useless and hazardous by-product

It's marketing w*nk. Similar has been available for 10 years. Available output is 100 microwatts. See: EEVBLOG

Reminds me of the "100W" instrument amplifier on the old PMT site in which the tech spec dept gave its power consumption as 70W. Well if Roland can get more out than you put in, the planet is saved! Not April 1st yet, is it?

And it only takes 22,400 hours to recharge from the Nuclear battery. With the current ones made from tritium costing about $1,000.

Well, 0.0001W can add up to a fair old total if you've got enough of them!

Ah, but you'd have to feed them on hamster food that had taken less than 100 microWatts to produce or you're not winning.
