Paper Battery and Intelligent Packaging
Paper battery is a thin flexible power source for flexible printed electronics and other thin electronics. It is based on Zn-Mn battery with a special form. It has a many-layer structure consisting of two sealing material, separator layer, anode collector, cathode collector and two active anode and cathode layers. The main feature of the paper battery is 1) thin below 1 mm; 2) flexible like paper; 3) eco design; 4) extreme cheap due to its R2R printing manufacture. Also power source can be produced in various size, thickness and shapes according to customers’ need. Paper battery enablizes many new electronics, espcially flexible printed and thin electronics. With the time going on, people’s life has been improved dramatically. Thus, conventional package is not anymore feasible or satisfactory. People are looking for new intelligent packaging with various functionality such as kinetic digit information, smart attractive elements and so on. Some applications are shown in this presentation which makes paper battery powerful in the field of intelligent packaging. In the last, the presentation also gives an introduction of our two platform of “Intellegent Packaging Alliance of Flexible Printed Electronics” and “Institute of Printed Electronics Industry”.
