Imprint Energy announces the expanded availability of its developer’s kit for its ultrathin, safe, flexible, printed batteries. Imprint’s batteries are suited for new types of high-volume applications such as smart labels, smart tags and more. The batteries pack the power to communicate over short or long distances, and were especially designed to power IoT devices integrated with Semtech’s LoRa devices for low-power wide area networks (LPWAN), as well as working with Bluetooth Low Energy and other standards.
The Imprint Battery Developer’s Kit (BDK) gives product developers new degrees of freedom in product design and capability, helping them quickly prototype new products and complete application testing. The BDK includes 30 3 Volt battery packs (which can be split into 60 1.5 Volt cells), documentation, and access to Imprint’s technical team to discuss specific applications and to support testing and evaluation.
Imprint’s batteries are distinctive in that they are “mass printed” on commercially available printers rather than assembled one at a time. Additionally, their zinc polymer chemistry does not leak, does not catch fire, can be shipped safely, and is environmentally friendlier than lithium batteries.
Imprint Energy makes ultrathin, safe, flexible, printed batteries for connected Internet of Things products, including smart labels, health and wellness sensors, and flexible displays.
