Energizer Zinc Air Prismatic battery uses oxygen from the air as an energy source to provide power
As electronics get smaller and thinner, Energizer is offering Zinc Air Prismatic as an exciting power solution for OEMs. Energizer Zinc Air Prismatic batteries use the same zinc air technology that is used in hearing aid batteries, in which zinc reacts with oxygen in the air to generate power. The battery offers high energy density as well as a thin form factor. Product innovations include a new 5 mm thin prismatic (rectangular) construction, with the highest energy density of any consumer portable power solution (either disposable or rechargeable) resulting in up to three times (3X) more runtime compared to similarly sized alkaline or lithium ion batteries.
The Energizer Zinc Air Prismatic battery uses oxygen from the air as an energy source to provide power and is designed with air access holes which are sealed with a tab until the consumer is ready to use the battery. One of the keys to fully utilizing the high energy density of this system is effectively managing the air access to the battery to optimize performance.
