Stretchable biofuel cells extract energy from sweat

Stretchable biofuel cells extract energy from sweat
A team of engineers has developed stretchable fuel cells that extract energy from sweat and are capable of powering electronics, such as LEDs and Bluetooth radios. The biofuel cells generate 10 times more power per surface area than any existing wearable biofuel cells. The devices could be used to power a range of wearable devices. The epidermal biofuel cells are a major breakthrough in the field, which has been struggling with making the devices that are stretchable enough and powerful enough.

Bendable batteries run on body-inspired liquids

Bendable batteries run on body-inspired liquids
Researchers in China have engineered bendable batteries that can run on body-inspired liquids such as normal IV saline solution and cell-culture medium. In their work, published in the journal Chem, the authors designed alternatives to lithium-ion batteries by focusing on the mechanical-stress demands of wearable electronics such as smartwatches and the safety requirements of implantable electronics.

Applications are changing with the times so why aren't batteries?

Applications are changing with the times so why aren't batteries?
Human beings are definitely creatures of habit. This is especially the case when it comes to buying consumables like batteries. We know batteries are important but we continue to buy cheap, subpar batteries that run out too quickly and simply cannot handle the heat. Michele Windsor, Global Marketing Manager for battery specialist Ultralife Corporation, explains the demands that three essential applications place on the humble 9V battery.

Medically-certified DC/DC converter is certified 2MOPP

Medically-certified DC/DC converter is certified 2MOPP
A new fully medically-certified DC/DC converter has been developed by RECOM, which the company claims to be the first in its class to provide 2MOPP with 250VAC working voltage in a SIP7 package. This compact design offers engineers more freedom to develop their PCB layout, knowing that they will comply with the stringent regulations for medical certifications. It is certainly a challenge to design high performance, space-saving medical devices, while still complying with the latest medical safety and EMC regulations.
