Solar Powering Your IoT Devices
Featured Product from PowerFilm, Inc.
It seems that everywhere you go these days people are talking about IoT.
Whether it’s smart light bulbs that respond to your voice or sensors that transmit data, these devices are everywhere.
While IoT growth is staggering it will undoubtedly run into some future issues.
One of the major barriers to the mass deployment of wireless IoT sensors is battery lifetime.
Depending on power requirements, a primary battery will last a few months to a few years.
Short battery life adds significant cost to a system over its lifetime. The batteries themselves may be inexpensive, but labor and repeated replacements can add significant costs over a product’s lifecycle.
