Powered Cards, such as “smart cards,” printed display cards, single password proximity cards, and consumer loyalty and gift cards, have become a worldwide trend across a multitude of industries. These interactive powered cards make it possible for people to conduct cashless transactions, track a running balance, gain authorized regular or one-time access to secure sites or high-value technology assets – activities we would have thought impossible with a simple credit card-sized form factor.
Blue Spark’s low-cost thin printed battery solutions provide the perfect power source for all kinds of powered cards, for all kinds of applications. Our 1.5V carbon-zinc batteries offer the compact size, flat profile, flexibility and capacity required – plus they are affordable and completely eco-friendly for easy disposal at the end of the card’s service life.
