Title (EN) BATTERY AND METHOD OF ATTACHING SAME TO A GARMENT
(FR) BATTERIE ET PROCEDE POUR LA FIXER A UN VETEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) A thin battery (100) has a central portion (110) and two end portions (120). One of the two end portions includes a positive voltage connection (121) exposed on both the top and bottom surfaces of the battery. The other one of the two end portions includes a negative voltage connection (122) exposed on both the top and bottom surfaces of the battery. Each of the end portions (120) includes a magnetic element having a north magnetic pole on one of the top or bottom surface of the battery and a south magnetic pole on the other one of the top or bottom surface of the battery. Multiple batteries may be connected to each other through magnetic attraction. The battery may be securely attached and electrically connected to a garment (1000) using positive and negative conductive surfaces/contacts (1010, 1020) on a fiber layer of the garment and a corresponding magnetic element (1050) beneath the conductive surfaces/contacts that attracts and secures the battery in place.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une batterie mince (100) qui présente une partie centrale (110) et deux parties d'extrémité (120). L'une des deux parties d'extrémité comprend une borne de tension positive (121) exposée à la fois sur la surface supérieure et sur la surface inférieure de la batterie. L'autre des deux parties d'extrémité comprend une borne de tension négative (122) exposée à la fois sur la surface supérieure et sur la surface inférieure de la batterie. Chaque partie d'extrémité (120) comprend un élément magnétique qui présente un pôle magnétique nord sur la surface supérieure ou la surface inférieure de la batterie, et un pôle magnétique sud sur l'autre surface de la batterie. De multiples batteries peuvent être connectées les unes aux autres par attraction magnétique. La batterie peut être fixée et connectée électriquement à un vêtement (1000) au moyen de surfaces/bornes de contact conductrices positives et négatives (1010, 1020) disposées sur la couche de fibres du vêtement, et d'un élément magnétique correspondant (1050) qui se trouve en-dessous des surfaces/bornes de contact conductrices, et attire et maintient la batterie en place.
