You are working on an IoT application and you are at a loss regarding the choice of battery? Don’t worry, all IoT designers have been there at some point.
Thinking about the battery at an early stage of your project will help you optimize your device’s power requirements in order to find the best possible arrangements to extend your device’s lifetime whilst ensuring that it receives the power needed to match its usage.
Knowing the size of the battery is also an important consideration when designing your device. But most importantly, the battery is a key element of your projects’ total cost of ownership and one not to overlook if you want your project to succeed.
That’s why we have worked in collaboration with our application engineers to create The Smart Battery selector, a tool that can help you —in just 7 steps— discover which batteries match your use case, how much space you need to leave in your product design to accommodate them, what is their price point and what average lifetime you can expect from your battery once integrated into your IoT device.
To help you further optimize it, you can edit the parameters of your application once on the results page, to find out in real time their impact on your battery choice.
The recommendations that are issued by the Smart Battery Selector are based on statistics and historical data, for the two main chemistries that are used in our lithium primary battery ranges used for the Internet of things: lithium-manganese dioxide (Li-MnO2 – LM/M ranges) and lithium-thionyl chloride (Li-SOCl2 - LS, LSH and LSP ranges). They are also based on our vast experience with millions of applications deployed in the field.

The Smart Battery selector is designed to help you explore your battery choice when at an early stage of your project. However, if you are further along the design process timeline, our experts can recommend a personalized battery solution and an accurate lifetime calculation for your device.
