of wearable batteries that is applicable to any curves of a human body.


The Stripe battery, which Samsung SDI revealed for the first time, is a
next-generation product that can bend and conform freely as a fiber and
is equipped with innovative energy density. Since it is adaptable to
various forms – such as a necklace, hairband, t-shirt accessories, and
more – it will in result fuel the growth of battery application market
including wearables.

The Stripe battery contains multiple element technologies that were
independently developed by Samsung SDI. Cutting-edge materials were used
internally and externally to finalize an ultra-slim 0.3mm design. It
also created higher energy density compared to other present batteries
by minimizing the width of battery sealing. The Stripe battery took
grasp of both design flexibility and high performance.

Samsung SDI also showcased its Band battery at the trade show. The Band
battery is a next-generation product that was made to target
smartwatches. When the battery is applied on the bands of any
smartwatch, it will greatly enhance the battery capacity to over 50%.

The Band battery of Samsung SDI proved to have sufficient marketability
by operating normally subsequent to being bended over 50 thousand times
within the curvature of human wrist circumference. At InterBattery 2015,
Samsung SDI also demonstrated wearable applications that were loaded
with their Stripe and Band products. It is a step into the age of
wearable batteries where a battery takes the reign in front of
application.
