  1. The problem is that there isn't much power (energy/time) to harvest from carbon 14 or other slow decaying isotopes and for this reason such battery needs to be 1000s of times bigger for the same power.Plutonium 238 or other faster decaying isotopes can work better for more power (but are extremely dangerous). Voyager uses Plutonium 238 to output around 400 Watts. That's almost HALF a horsepower of power costing millions of Dollars.Electric cars need 100s of horsepower and this battery technology is plain impossible for that.These batteries can serve in very low power applications and can be awesome for that.
