Apple recently announced a Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 6 and 6S. This introduction seemed a bit anti-climactic to those of us in the battery industry. For years, we have seen the proliferation of beautifully engineered electronics built for form and primary function, but give short shrift to the power source. Consumers often find the original power source included with these products does not always meet their use patterns. For modern, connected men and women, battery power (or the lack thereof), becomes a focal point of everyday life. Too often, the battery is viewed with frustration and derision. A secondary, mobile battery back-up is often needed.
At Batteries Plus Bulbs, we see first-hand the ongoing development of battery technology that has expanded electronic capabilities to a point that would have been unimaginable 10-years ago. Rechargeable lithium ion and lithium polymer batteries have revolutionized the power industry, leaving traditional nickel based batteries, such as nickel cadmium (NiCd) and nickel metal hydride (NiMH) firmly in the dust. Consider the upside of lithium batteries:
Yes, we are battery nerds. But, we see the introduction of new designs like the Apple Smart Battery Case as proof that battery technology is meeting the power demands of consumer electronics, not limiting their performance. Original batteries that come with the device do not always meet real world applications. Yet the availability of rechargeable lithium cells in mobile back-up battery formats can provide the flexibility that consumers demand. It comes down to matching the electronics with the customer’s daily use pattern to determine how much power is really needed, and then working with someone you can Trust to find the right mobile battery solution.
