Default Paintable Battery

"It sounds crazy, but engineers at Rice University say they've created a battery that can be spray-painted onto virtually any surface."
An interesting concept if they can work out the kinks.
The press report is here.
The Nature pdf is here, bottom of the left column.

Sure, why not? Didn't Polaroid sell film packs that included a battery for some of their cameras? Those batteries were flexible with the film. And that was like 30 years ago. I recall some 50 years ago, making a Tesla Coil, we needed a very high voltage capacitor, and it was made by gluing aluminum foil to either side of a pane of glass. Probably could have used aluminum paint. If a battery is two disimilar materials brought together, why not spray them on?
