Varta: CoinPower microbattery
Varta is touting its CoinPower microbattery and its range of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries at the Wearable Technologies Conference in San Francisco this year.
The CoinPower is designed to offer energy within a tiny profile to wearables and medical devices. With an energy density that is up to 30% higher than comparable batteries, the CoinPower has shorter charging time and are 4mm thick.
“In this segment, we have developed unique competitive advantages and are benefiting from the shift in technology away from cylindrical battery cells to coin format batteries,” general manager of OEM Philipp Miehlich said in a press release. “We have been supporting this change in technology for wireless headphones with our leading technology, and are setting the standards in the industry in this area with our stream of new innovations.”
