Smart wearables, medical or consumer IoT devices have been constrained by convention battery limitations today. Latest flexible batteries technologies allow battery to be made ultrathin, bendable and safe. These features let device designs become more appealing and with higher power capacity. 'Functions' no longer mean electronics packed in a box, but can be integrated into not-supposingly-smart apparels.
Speaker Biography (David M. Yeung)
Mr David Yeung holds a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and an MBA. He has over 20 years of experience in various manufacturing industries, including smart card, mobile phone, watch and smart wearable industries.
Mr Yeung has been exploring flexible energy storage solutions for smart watches and wearables. He is the inventor of Utility Model Patent "Bendable & Detachable Battery Bracelet for Wrist Electronic Device", which was registered at China Patent Office in August 2014. Since 2015, Mr Yeung has been working closely with Nano and Advanced Materials Institute (NAMI) in the development of flexible batteries.
In 2017, Mr Yeung has founded Lionock Batteries Limited to focus on commercializing the flexible battery technology.
Mr Yeung is a Director of the Federation of Hong Kong Watch Trades & Industries Limited since 2014.
Company Profile (Lionrock Batteries)
Lionrock Batteries Ltd. is developing and manufacturing flexible rechargeable battery technologies to
address the rapidly growing and evolving needs for energy storage in new wearables, medical devices and
other consumer IoT devices. The emerging market is projected to reach over $400M by 2025.
Problem: New wearables, medical devices and other consumer IoT devices are constrained by the limitation of
convention batteries (size, weight, life span, charge cycle, energy density, etc.) of today.
Solution: Lionrock is introducing a patented nano-fiber separator technology, combined with combined with polymer-laminated electrodes and lithium-based gel electrolyte, resulting in a rechargeable battery that is bendable (repeatedly), ultrathin, light weight and highly customizable "pouch" packaging with excellent safety and cycle life.
