VARTA presents new generation of CoinPower® at the Consumer Electronics Show

At this year's CES, which is being held virtually due to COVID-19, the technology company from Ellwangen (Germany) is introducing the new A4 generation of lithium-ion button cells. Like its previous generations the CoinPower® cell offers the highest energy density in the smallest space.

The new CoinPower® is used in future technology of wireless and mobile devices in the field of wearables, internet of things, medicine and health, in sensors for smart home and smart city as well as in industry 4.0 applications. The lithium-ion button cells enable the production of increasingly compact and smaller devices with high convenience for the consumer.

“Our CoinPower® cells have made the next generation of premium true wireless stereo headsets possible. With the latest generation of lithium-ion cells, we are going one step further. Thanks to the more powerful coin cells, our customers can include even more functions and achieve even shorter charging times for their products.

VARTA shows once again why we are innovation and technology leaders in many areas. Thanks to our high competence in research and development as well as our high production standards, we can make leading products even better. VARTA produces in Germany onmachines that we have developed and designed ourselves. This ensures full control along the entire value chain“, says Philipp Miehlich, General Manager OEM VARTA Microbattery.

VARTA looks back on 30 years of experience in the field of lithium-ion button cells.
VARTA CoinPower® was introduced in 2011. The innovative design of the high-performance cell enables the highest energy density in the smallest space. A range of patented technologies ensures VARTA has an edge over many competitor products. Through continuous technological research, VARTA has been able to constantly develop and improve the performance of the CoinPower® generations over the years.

In addition to lithium-ion cells, VARTA is presenting its comprehensive portfolio of microbatteries at CES, including hearing aid batteries.

With its brand power one, VARTA offers primary zinc-air batteries as well as rechargeable Li-ion batteries for hearing aids. Visitors will find all the details on the products in the power one World.
The power one World dedicates a separate theme area to the latest cell innovation: The new product generation power one EVOLUTION with zinc-air technology. The cell, which is based on Thin Foil Technology (TFT), enables up to 15% higher capacity. Field tests with customers showed that runtimes were extended by one to two days.

VARTA is also presenting Application Specific Batteries (ASB) for the rapidly growing market of agricultural robotics at the CES. VARTA develops modular lithium-ion packs that can be flexibly expanded and thus customised for the respective application in agriculture. For more details on lithium-ion batteries for the agricultural industry, please see the press release here.

The VARTA virtual booth can be experienced online after registering for CES.

The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is one of the world's largest trade fairs for consumer electronics. Every year, well-known manufacturers from the electronics industry present the latest consumer products and show the trends for the future.
