  • Patent number: 11334164
    Abstract: An electronic device includes an enclosure having a transparent cover defining a touch-sensitive surface, a display positioned within the enclosure and below the transparent cover, and a haptic device configured to produce a haptic output along the touch-sensitive surface. The haptic device may include a battery element electrically coupled to the display, a magnetic element, and a coil assembly fixed with respect to the enclosure and configured to induce an oscillatory movement of the battery element parallel to the display to produce the haptic output. In other examples, the coil assembly may be coupled to the battery element and the first and second magnetic elements may be fixed with respect to the enclosure.

  • Publication number: 20210218118
    Abstract: Energy storage devices, battery cells, and rechargeable batteries according to some embodiments of the present technology may include an enclosure, and an electrode stack housed within the enclosure. The batteries may include a negative electrode terminal electrically coupled with the electrode stack and disposed on an external surface of the enclosure. The batteries may include a positive electrode terminal electrically coupled with the electrode stack and disposed on an external surface of the enclosure. The batteries may include an electrolyte incorporated within the enclosure. The batteries may also include a reference electrode at least partially in contact with the electrolyte. The reference electrode may be disposed on an external surface of the enclosure, and may be electrically isolated from the negative electrode terminal and the positive electrode terminal.

  • Publication number: 20210074958
    Abstract: This application relates to a battery system for reducing spacing between components in an electronic device. The battery system includes a housing surrounding an electrode assembly and a connection module. The housing is rigid or semi-rigid and connected to a common ground. The battery system can be positioned in the electronic device to contact components without damaging the components. In some embodiments, the battery system can be used as a structural element in the electronic component.
