Columbia engineers develop flexible lithium battery for wearable electronics


January 31, 2018

Columbia School of Engineering researchers have developed a prototype of a high-performance flexible lithium-ion battery that demonstrates concurrently both good flexibility and high energy density. The battery is shaped like the human spine and allows remarkable flexibility, high energy density, and stable voltage no matter how it is flexed or twisted. The device could help advance applications for wearable electronics. Full Story
