The 50 year battery.

Some fellows at Cornell University have come up with a design for
what amounts to a 50 year battery.

Their current version is powered by a radioactive isotope of nickel. However, the radiation given off by this isotope is only beta particles, which don’t even have enough energy to penetrate human skin, so the device is safe. Save enough to even power internal implants.
