Batteries, printed

11.04.08

Simply put, power sources that are printed.

Thin-film and printed batteries are suited to a variety of applications where their small profile and
low-cost manufacturing make them economically attractive. These include low-power
applications such as smart cards, memory chips, active RFID tags and medical implants such as
hearing devices and neurostimulators. Some companies are seeking out niche applications – such
as cosmetic patches – where there appears to be a unique need for the special features offered
by this kind of battery.
