Flexible, rechargeable battery developed at Northwestern

05/13/2013 | ASME.org

Engineers at Northwestern University have developed a very flexible battery with small flexible connections and lithium-based batteries embedded in a silicone sheet. The flexibility was achieved "by exploiting segmented layouts and deformable electrical interconnects in specialized, 'self-similar' geometries," said Yonggang Huang, professor of civil and mechanical engineering at the university. The battery can be recharged without wires.
