Molex’s battery can attach to wearables and medical biosensors and conform to a patient’s body for maximum comfort

Molex’s thin-film battery is made of zinc and manganese dioxide, making disposal much easier for the end-user. Most developed countries have disposal regulations; this makes it costly and inconvenient for end-users to dispose of products with lithium batteries. Consumer and medical manufacturers need solutions that are comfortable and lightweight for the wearer. Molex’s thin-film battery can attach to wearables and medical biosensors and conform to a patient’s body for maximum comfort.

Many printed batteries cannot reach the peak current levels required for wirelessly transmitting data. The stacked construction of this battery offers lower internal resistance, boosting peak current and enabling wireless communication.

Features

  • Reduced distance between the anode and cathode
    • Vertically-stacked construction provides the following compared to single-layered construction:
      • Reduced internal resistance
      • Increased peak current
      • Increased usable capacity
      • Reduced footprint
  • No heavy metals
    • Offers an economical, environmentally safe alternative to lithium
  • Available in 1.5 V and 3 V configurations
    • Delivers power suitable for low-power disposable applications
  • Thin, flexible form-factor
    • Supports design flexibility appropriate for a wide variety of products
  • Flexible and bendable
    • Can be applied on a curved surface with a bend radius of 25 mm or greater
