Panasonic revealed its new battery for wearable devices which, they say, it’s the smallest batteries yet. This comes in very handy as the trend is to build smaller and smaller tech devices. Less space, more capacity. Panasonic’s small battery for wearable devices is a lithium-ion battery, 20 millimeters long and with a 3.5 mm diameter. This means that these batteries are way smaller than the AAA batteries. Panasonic said that their latest battery is actually the smallest in terms of capacity by volume.
Panasonic’s small battery for wearable devices is CG-320 and has a capacity of 13 mAh and a 3.75 V voltage capacity. This allows for NFC and Bluetooth connectivity with smartphones.
The compact size and the low weight makes this battery more than perfect for the latest wearable devices such as fitness bands, smart glasses, smart watches, hearing aids and even electronic pens. So Panasonic says.
Another great thing about Panasonic’s small battery for wearable devices is that it can actually influence the size of the actual wearable device, inspiring the producers to reduce the size for a better usability and comfort. Because when it comes to wearable devices, size does matter, and the smaller the better.
A spokesperson for Panasonic said that:
“The size, which is the smallest of its kind in the industry, can allow more flexible product design, and high strength and stability of form delivers high reliability.”
Panasonic’s small battery for wearable devices has a lower capacity than that of the Jawbone UP24, a battery that is currently being used for some wearable devices, but Panasonic’s battery is smaller than the Jawbone.
Panasonic said that they are currently working on two more small batteries with a better capacity: one of 30mAh and the other of 50mAh. When buying a wearable device, one of the important aspects is the battery size.
Panasonic also said that they are planning to mass-produce the new battery for wearable devices, estimating a monthly production of more than 100,000 units. Panasonic’s small battery for wearable devices will begin shipping around February 2015.
