Product requirements and use cases

To choose a battery, identify the product uses and minimum requirements for the application. Usage and requirements have a direct impact on the battery’s parameters. For example:

  • Physical dimensions – Available space in the product
  • Electrical parameters – Supply voltage range, peak current consumption
  • Operating profile – Frequency and duration of transmissions, receive windows, measurements, and sleep durations
  • Life expectancy – Shelf life and service life
  • Environmental – Storage and operating temperatures, moisture, and humidity
  • Other considerations – Cost, rechargeability and disposability
