The key advantages of Power Paper's fully-printable batteries include:
Ultra-thin and flexible allowing for custom design: At a thickness of only 0.6 – 0.7 mm, Power Paper believes that its battery is one of the thinnest in the marketplace. The battery is flexible and can be bent or twisted repeatedly at sharp angles. The batteries have the same elasticity and flexibility as the paper or plastic surface onto which they are printed, and can be shaped to fit the size, thickness, and form of a wide range of products for cosmetic, consumer, medical, industrial and defense applications.

Environment-friendly and bio-friendly: The materials used for Power Paper’s battery and integration technologies are environmentally safe according to international standards. The cells do not contain any heavy metals such as mercury, lead or cadmium, commonly found in conventional batteries. As international standards for battery-powered devices evolve and manufacturers seek cleaner, greener batteries to power their devices, Power Paper is well-positioned to supply this demand.

Proven performance: Power Paper's batteries have been used in commercially-available products for nearly a decade, with millions of units shipped. The cells perform well over a wide range of temperatures and humidity levels, featuring a flat discharge curve (see below), discharging at a continuous current density per active cell area of 0.1 mA/cm2.
Low-cost mass production using a conventional screen-printing processes: Production costs for Power Paper's batteries are very low. Using a conventional printing process, cells are manufactured by industry-standard printing, drying and laminating equipment and processes, resulting in competitive material costs.
High safety features - The cells contain no caustic chemicals, and cannot overheat, explode, or cause burns or electrical shock. They are non-toxic and non-flammable and can therefore be freely shipped, stored, and disposed of after use.
Fully integratable – The cells can be printed directly into or onto the end-product for seamless integration. Part of the cells may even have dual functions to serve the purpose of the end-product.
Flat discharge curve - The cells feature a straight and stable discharge curve until the complete depletion of their capacity, enabling steady performance of powered products over time.
