That is what a battery is!

The base cell stores energy in the form of chemical energy. When you make a circuit through the power stick (whatever that is!) and the salt water, that chemical energy causes electrons to flow - thus electricity.

This is exactly the same as any form of battery out there. Batteries store chemical energy which is transformed to electrical energy when a circuit is made.

The only form of battery which actually stores energy as electricity is a Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage system. Basically it's a superconducting circuit where you cause the electrons to flow and they never slow down because there is no resistance. So you can put energy in, then anytime later take it back out again. Once we get room temperature superconductors going, this will be the perfect battery. Until then...we have chemical batteries - like yours.

That said, good luck with your investment! I too have been an entrepreneur looking to make it big. Unfortunately I was more interested in climbing than business. So while I failed spectacularly to make any money I did manage to up my climbing by about 3 grades.
