Flexible Ultra Thin Printable Batteries By Power Paper
Power Paper Ltd. is the creator and licensor of printable micro-electronic clean technology and patches. Power Paper’s thin and flexible batteries provide a fully printable, integratable and disposable power source. They also have a very long shelf life and deliver a superior electrical performance due to their overall structure and efficient active inks. In addition, Power Paper printable batteries are comparatively less expensive.

Power Paper Flexible Printable Batteries are being used in pharmaceutical applications, novelties, consumer electronics and RFID tags.

Advantages of Power Paper Flexible Printable Batteries

  • Thin and flexible allowing for custom design: At a thickness of only 0.6 – 0.7 mm. The thin battery is flexible and can be bent or twisted repeatedly at sharp angles. The printed batteries have the same elasticity and flexibility as the paper or plastic surface onto which they are printed, and can be shaped to fit the size, thickness, and form of a wide range of products for cosmetic, consumer, medical, industrial and defense applications.
  • Environment-friendly and bio-friendly Batteries – The materials used for Power Paper’s printed thin battery and integration technologies are environmentally safe according to international standards. The cells do not contain any heavy metals such as mercury, lead or cadmium, commonly found in conventional batteries.
  • Proven performance – Power Paper’s printed thin batteries have been used in commercially-available products for nearly a decade. The cells perform well over a wide range of temperatures and humidity levels, featuring a flat discharge curve
  • Low-cost mass production using a conventional screen-printing processes – Production costs for Power Paper’s thin printed batteries are very low.
  • High safety features – Power Paper’s disposable thin battery’s cells contain no caustic chemicals, and cannot overheat, explode, or cause burns or electrical shock. They are non-toxic and non-flammable and can therefore be freely shipped, stored, and disposed of after use.
  • Fully integratable – Power Paper’s disposable thin battery’s cells can be printed directly into or onto the end-product for seamless integration. Part of the cells may even have dual functions to serve the purpose of the end-product.
  • Flat discharge curve – Power Paper’s disposable thin battery’s cells feature a straight and stable discharge curve until complete depletion of their capacity, enabling steady performance of powered products over time.
