Battery life anxiety is a major issue for all types of consumer and mobile connected devices, and is only becoming more pervasive as new IoT and wearable products come to market.
Troy, NY (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
Paper Battery Company, developer of an innovative supercapacitor-based energy storage and enhancement technology for consumer electronics and other applications, today was named a 2015 CES Innovations Award Honoree. The company was recognized at the CES Unveiled New York event, which showcased the top innovations that will be on display at the 2015 CES event in Las Vegas January 6-19, 2015.
Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories. Paper Battery Company’s breakthrough PowerWrapper™ product was was honored in the Embedded Technology category.
The award recognizes Paper Battery Company’s innovative approach to power and energy management that promises to significantly improve battery life in smartphones, wearables, Internet of Things (Iot) applications and other mobile electronic devices. Its PowerWrapper™ product uses ultrathin supercapacitor technology that changes where and how power management components can be placed, enabling new performance paradigms and novel applications with smaller form factors and lower cost.
Product developers can integrate the form-flexible and conformable PowerWrapper™ supercapacitor in the interstitial space over components, rather than having to work to fit in more components in limited space. The device can wrap around the board and battery or conform to a bent curved cover.
Among the applications cited in the Paper Battery Company’s winning nomination that can be directly addressed by the company’s technology are: OLED display screens, camera flashes, smart watches, battery-power sounds systems, personal audio amplifiers and hearing systems, and smart connected sensors.
“Battery life anxiety is a major issue for all types of consumer and mobile connected devices, and is only becoming more pervasive as new IoT and wearable products come to market,” said Shreefal Mehta, CEO of Paper Battery Company. “We are delighted to be honored by CES with this recognition as it underscores the need to rethink how power and energy management techniques are implemented in order to improve the overall customer experience.”
The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. 2015 CES Innovation Honoree products are featured on CESweb.org/Innovation, which lists product categories, as well as each product name, manufacturer information, description, photo and URL.
