Water desalinization made easy

"German researchers have developed a battery that can remove sodium and chloride ions from seawater. In theory, their invention could be far more energy efficient than thermal desalination or reverse osmosis. This would cut the cost of using salt water for drinking or irrigation. It could also be used to make compact desalination systems for boats and life rafts, or crops. Each battery is made with manganese oxide nanorod electrodes, which absorb sodium when an electrical current passes through them. When the current is reversed, they dump the sodium ions out into waste water."

Not sure that I would drink from this water source. Although my son and I have surfed San Onofre near the nuke plant's water discharge. There were two great white sharks swimming beneath us at the time. They were full because of all the dead fish around the nuke reactors. But none the less a hair raising experience!http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/05/110512082949.htmAll water was pee?
