Apple Patent Application Shows Flexible Battery Packs, Could Possibly Power ‘iWatch’

Apple Patent Application Shows Flexible Battery Packs, Could Possibly Power ‘iWatch’

A patent application from Apple shows a battery design that could be used in a flexible/bendable type of a product. And I know exactly the product you’re thinking of, a Utility Belt like Batman’s, right? Oh, yeah… I guess it could be used for a smart watch too…

PatentlyApple, via 9to5Mac:

Flexible battery packs for use in electronic devices are disclosed. In one embodiment of the present disclosure, the flexible battery pack may include a plurality of cells, such as galvanic or photovoltaic cells. The battery pack also may include a plurality of laminate layers coupled to the cells that include a top laminate layer and a bottom laminate layer. An adhesive may be used to couple the top and bottom laminate layers together such that each of the plurality of cells is isolated from each other. This arrangement may allow the battery to be shaped to fit a form factor of the electronic device. This arrangement also may allow one or more of the cells to be selectively removed from the plurality, which may be desirable from a manufacturing perspective.

Apple lists numerous products that could take advantage of the flexible designs, and yes, it does specifically mention “wristwatches” in the patent application. The drawing above can give you some idea of how it could be beneficial for such a device.

‘iWatch Watch 2013’ continues. We’ll keep you posted.
