As the number of wearable devices increases, the demand for smaller and longer-lasting devices, remote transmitters and transponders, and higher device intelligence will drive the quest for higher energy efficiency and capacity in the power sources of these devices. If we don’t continuously improve our batteries, the wearable industry will power down.

We are excited to have an article in ReadWrite (formerly WearableWorld).  In the article our own Larry Burgess explains the latest options for powering wearable devices. He highlights the quest for the development of smaller, more efficient, and longer-lasting energy sources. He covers battery size, shape, capacity, and reliability for a number of energy source options:

  • Lithium ion batteries
  • Thin film batteries
  • Pouch batteries
  • Graphene batteries
  • Supercapacitors
  • Energy Harvesting
