Samsung unviels flexible "Stripe" batteries, specially for wearables

When the wearables are come into concern, one must want a long life battery. The batteries in the wearable devices are one of the biggest limitations. For all their features and flashiness, smartwatches still suffer from relatively poor battery life, and those batteries represent design limitations. Wearables’ designs limit the battery choices.

As the area of a wearable (Smart-Watches for example) is very small as compare of a smartphone. So a company has to face the limitations of making a flat battery of that size.

It was a big hurdle in providing long battery timing in wearables. Different researchers, mobile phone and electronics companies have been working on battery technologies to solve this issue, and of course one of them is Samsung, which has recently got a tremendous success in this regard. Samsung has introduced its all new concept of a movable battery and the company calls it "Stripe battery".

Earlier this week, Samsung introduced Stripe and Band batteries at the "InterBattery 2015" event in Seoul. The batteries are specially made for wearables of future. They can be used for multiple devices, as the chief feature is the batteries’ flexibility.


Firstly there’s Stripe, which can bend to match the contours of a person’s body, such as their wrist. The flexibility is said to be akin to that of fiber, allowing it to be used in gadgets like smart bands, necklaces, t-shirt accessories and similar devices. Despite having a higher density than comparable batteries, Stripe is only 0.3mm thick.


In addition to Stripe, Samsung also showcased the Band battery, which is designed specifically for smartwatches. The battery is design in such a way that it can be “applied on the bands of any smartwatch,” says Samsung, where it will boost the battery capacity by more than 50%. After being bent more than 50,000 times during testing, the battery still operated normally.
