Submission + - Scientists Fabricate Tough Batteries On Polyester Fabric (acs.org)

MTorrice writes: As wearable electronics move from abstract concepts to tangible products, engineers want to find ways to integrate flexible, powerful textile-based batteries into people's clothing to power the devices. Now researchers have built one of the most durable wearable batteries to date on polyester fabric. They electroplated nickel onto the polyester to produce electrodes that have high conductivity and can withstand repeated mechanical stress. The whole battery, which the researchers sewed into a hoody, can be folded 10,000 times without losing function.
