Based in Alameda, California, Imprint Energy creates a flexible battery that can be easily implemented into a wearable tech garment or device. This rechargeable battery is meant to be lightweight and versatile and can be easily printed using an industrial screen printer.

The California startup's revolutionary battery concept makes power packs safe to use on skin, ensuring they are harm-free when in contact with the body. The power packs can adjust in size and flexibility according to a piece of wearable tech and are crafted out of a zinc polymer that is ultra-thin and malleable.

These flexible batteries illustrate the growing popularity of wearable technology and may soon be on the market. The unique and customized power sources are light years ahead of a classic battery that is bulky and large in its size.
