Paper-Thin Batteries Go into Production

Paper-Thin Batteries Go into Production

Wearable Health Tech devices need power. Great progress is being made in energy harvesting technology, but until these solutions become widely available at a low cost — and perhaps afterwards as well — we will continue to depend on batteries to store...
Batteries by the Square Yard

Batteries by the Square Yard

One problem with wearable technology and other mobile devices is that they require power to operate. For low-power devices, energy harvesting can be a solution, but most require stored electricity which is why we rely so heavily on batteries. Imagine that you simply...

Stretchable Fiber Battery

One key challenge for most WellTech devices is finding a way to provide electrical power. Some devices can harvest energy from their environment, using body heat, ambient light, motion, or some other source. Most devices will still require some way to store power for...
Body Power for Wearable Devices

Body Power for Wearable Devices

Wearable technology has wonderful potential, especially for health and fitness applications. But there is one important problem that must be solved; how are you going to power these devices? One common solution is to use batteries, but these must be recharged if...
