“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.
Benefits of SoftBattery Technology:
SoftBattery, Enfucell’s primary product, is similar to a thin galvanic cell and is made of low-cost environmentally friendly materials. The device was designed to be a disposable provider of low voltage, yet stable power. Because the SoftBattery is manufactured in a roll form, it can be easily integrated into existing production lines. The battery can be manufactured in various sizes, and due to its flexible size and shape will perform well even if it is slightly bent. Capable of operating in a wide range of temperatures (-25°C to +60°C), this moisture and wetness resistant battery is exceptionally durable.
