Useful and informative post from Product Design & Development
Connected and smart consumer products are taking center stage compared to purely mechanical devices and simple electronic products. But the power required from microcontrollers, sensors, and other components that make these devices “smart”, means that batteries are key considerations in design.
Also, the size and the need for portability of a wearable product’s design constrains its battery choice. Yet at the same time, the device’s power requirements also drive the battery form factor. Consumers’ demand for smaller, thinner products with longer battery life will continue to keep product design engineers and hardware engineers busy!
From lithium ion batteries to coin cell batteries, and from battery life to size and fit, there are many options of which battery technology best fits your needs, and how you can use each one in prototyping.
