The fuel was auto-fed without assis- tance of any external equipment and power input. The auto-feeding was realized by mi- micking the transpiration process of plants. The auto-feeding microbial fuel cell generated a power density of −3 295.5 W m . This study provides a unique way to fabricate self-sustaining portable MFCs. ARTIC L E I NF O ABSTRAC T Keywords: Inspired by the transpiration process in plants, we report an auto-feeding microbial fuel cell (AF-MFC), in which Auto-feeding the fuel (substrate solution) is fed automatically through a process similar to transpiration in natural plants Microbial fuel cell without using any external equipment and applying extra power. The AF-MFC consisted of a bioanode, an Hydrogel electrolyte
