Thin Battery Technologies has introduced two disposable battery products for RFID tags and other products. The carbon-zinc batteries can be used in both passive and active RFID applications.
The 1.5V TBT UT Series delivers about 12 mAh of energy to tags and can be made as little as 0.02 inches thick. It is intended for use on RFID transit tickets, loyalty cards and smart labels among other applications. The TBT HD Series delivers 8 mAh and was developed for more power-intensive applications, from real time locating systems to singing greeting cards.
The flexible batteries are printed in sheets rather than assembled, can be shaped to meet a variety of design needs, and meet the environmental standards of the European Union and other organizations.
