New Curved Battery Tech for Extending Smart Watch Battery Life

New Curved Battery Technology for Extending Smart Watch Battery Life

KHARABAND for HARP GAHUNIA – Harp Gahunia came to MAKO Design + Invent with a complex challenge: to create a curved, flexible watch band that houses lithium-ion batteries and connects to existing smartwatches in order to triple the watch’s battery life.

In under a year, the talented industrial designers, mechanical engineers, and electronics engineers at MAKO made it happen in the form of the Kharaband. Harp has raised over $100M in financing in his career, so we are excited to see how he will take Kharaband to the next level.

The curved battery patent-pending design is made from high-performance fluorocarbon.
