Overview

Design Engineers are continuing to innovate in the hearable/wearable device markets, developing smaller and more powerful devices. A primary challenge is how to miniaturize a device around the large batteries previously required for such applications. ZPower has the answer.

The ZPower silver-zinc rechargeable cell is the smallest, high-energy density microbattery available. It enables a new generation of products, including many new hearable/wearable devices, by providing 400 Wh/L in packages smaller than the collar button of a dress shirt. ZPower batteries are also non-flammable, making them the safest way to power next generation products.

This webinar is intended to provide Design Engineers with detail on the benefits of integrating ZPower's rechargeable microbatteries into their designs and demonstrate how ZPower can support that effort.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn about the distinct advantages of silver-zinc rechargeable batteries over other microbattery technologies
  • Learn to evaluate the appropriateness of silver-zinc battery technology for various microbattery applications.
  • Understand how to incorporate silver-zinc battery technology into miniature devices
