CES 2019: Flexible Li-ion Polymer Battery Wristband for Apple Watch
ETNews / LiBest

Korean startup shows off charging band for Apple Watch at CES 2019.

A South Korean startup will exhibit a charging wristband for the Apple Watch at the CES 2019. The Apple Watch wristband contains a Flexible Li-ion Polymer Battery.

The flexible battery has a bend radius of 15 mm and a bend angle of 70 degrees. LiBest showed off an early prototype at the MWC last year. The charging band for the Apple Watch is supposed to launch through a crowdfunding campaign in the first half of 2019.

Flexible batteries are key to advance wearable technology and have been in the works for several years now. These batteries can be integrated into clothes, belts, shoes and more, increasing the independence from wall outlets.

At the CES 2019, wearables compete with many other technologies. A few weeks later is a much more focused conference and expo in Germany that is only about wearables and related technologies. The Wearable Technologies 2019 Europe will kick off Feb. 3, 2019. I4U News readers get a 20% discount on tickets for the WT Wearable Technologies Conference 2019 with code WT_i4u.

The show is the world’s largest and most influential technology event, featuring 4,500 exhibitors across 2.75 million net square feet of exhibit space.
