Current batteries that power our mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and the new range of smartwatches that have been made available in the last few months. Are still very volatile when damaged or cut open causing the batteries to either explode, inflate or leak unwanted harmful gases.
To combat these battery problems and make batteries more flexible, battery manufacturer ProLogium has created a new flexible battery that it has unveiled this month.
That is capable of twisting in a similar way to a stick of gum and can even have pieces cut off it yet still provide power to the connected device or in this case an LED light. The new super thin and flexible battery created by ProLogium would be perfect for applications such as smart clothing or smartwatches to name just a few.
ProLogium has not wasted any time getting the new technology to market and has already rolled out its super thin, although non-flexible version of the LCB battery into the Power Flip case for the HTC One Max smartphone.
As the new flexible battery is still just a prototype stage at the current time unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by ProLogium, but as soon as information comes to light over the coming year we will keep you updated as always.
Digital Trends were able to get their hands on the new ProLogium flexible battery and had a demonstration of its capabilities revealing a little more about the batteries specifications and uses. For more information jump over to the Digital Trends website via the link below.
