Samsung has developed some battery prototypes that aim to power wearable smart devices. The company indicated that the devices offer as much as 50 per cent more battery life.

Samsung SDI unveiled the company's Stripe and Band batteries at the recent InterBattery 2015 event at COEX, Seoul, South Korea.

The Stripe battery is designed to bend and conform freely as a fibre and offers high energy density. The battery is capable of adapting to various forms such as a necklace, hairband, t-shirt accessories and more.

Samsung develops bendable batteries for smart devices

The Stripe battery contains multiple element technologies that were independently developed by Samsung SDI. Careful use of materials internally and externally yields an ultra-slim 0.3mm design. The battery also features a higher energy density compared to available batteries by minimising the width of battery sealing.

At InterBattery 2015 Samsung SDI also showcased the company's Band battery, a next-generation product that targets smartwatch applications. When the battery is applied on the bands of any smartwatch, it will enhance the battery capacity by more than 50 per cent.

Samsung SDI has shown that the Band battery is capable of operating normally after being bent more than 50,000 times within the curvature of human wrist circumference.
