From Smart Door Locks to Wi-Fi Lighting: IoT is Driving the Custom Battery Packs Market
Main Image

By the time 2020 comes around, it’s estimated there will be 30.7 billion connected devices in the world. With no sign of slowing down, it’s understood that the Internet of Things isn’t just a movement or fad, it is tomorrow’s way of life.

Opening Doors with Your Mobile Phone

Soon, you may be able to hand over the responsibility of buying groceries to your smart fridge. Already, these appliances can help take an inventory of what you have and what you need for tonight’s dinner.

In the meantime, other advancements have already entered the home. Smart thermostats use geofencing to sense the presence of inhabitants and adjust the heating and cooling through connected HVAC systems. Newer, smarter door locks can pick up the signal from authorized smartphones to bypass the use of physical keys. These technologies are already a reality, and they’re growing in popularity.

More and more every day appliances come embedded with sensors that allow them to communicate with other devices in their vicinity. We are racing towards a future where a common pool of information will exist in the cloud to solve problems before they happen.

It’s not just for the consumer market! The industrial market is increasingly reliant upon IoT devices, from asset tracking to warehouse management.

Innovative Devices Require New Sources of Power

The Internet of Things is massive, and there is no stopping the juggernaut. However, all these tech advances require significant supporting infrastructure and products. Custom battery packs in particular are seeing heightened demand to accommodate this growing sector.

Wireless devices need power to operate. New battery packs have to be light weight, streamlined, and resistant to frequent power drains. Durability is also important to account for exposure to dust and water.

In short, legacy power sources are not designed to keep up with the Internet of Things. So, further investment is needed to fully take advantage of IoT capabilities.
