Paper-like Soft Battery Will Help Gadgets Get Smaller

Zhang Xiachang a Chinese researcher has developed a paper-like battery called the Enfucell soft battery. The Battery measures only 0.5mm thick and can be bent and rolled like paper. There’s no information on battery life.

Enfucell”, a Finland-based company, has developed a flexible thin battery named “SoftBattery”. This 0.3 – 1.0 millimeter battery (1.5 or 3.0 V) can produce a peak electric current of 4mA/cm². Enfucell was founded in 2002, after nearly ten years of research on power sources for low-power application conducted at the Automation Laboratory of the Helsinki University of Technology. The SoftBattery has several interesting applications in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and logistics industries.
