Nowadays, device design is strongly focused on improving user experience. Together with good design practices, the introduction of visual cues (e.g. screens and LEDs) and device connectivity are excellent tools to offer users a better overall experience.
These smart and connected devices have one key characteristic in common: they need energy. In almost every case, particularly for disposables, button cell batteries are used to provide the energy storage solution.
This traditional technology presents a number of limitations across the product life cycle, from design to disposal. This translates into compromised solutions and, in some cases, it limits the scope of the product.
