NEC said Wednesday it has developed a flexible, paper-thin battery that eventually will be usable by a variety of mobile devices.

The company dubbed the battery ORB, for "Organic Radical Battery." It said it initially would be used in applications such as smartcards and "intelligent paper." It said the battery can fully recharge in just 30 and, unlike other types of power sources, does not contain any metals that could harm the environment.

Instead, the battery is made out of
