7 Important battery considerations for your IoT application

Dave ParkerIoT


The availability of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) communications technology allows IoT applications to be implemented that were not possible before. These applications have no access to mains or vehicular power sources and must rely on batteries. If your device relies on batteries, then you have to work out what type of battery is best for you. The device has to work autonomously for the length of time required by the application. The problem facing designers of an IoT deployment is how to dimension the battery for the job the device is required to do. Using cellular network technologies such as NB-IoT or LTE-M, or alternatives such as LoRa or Sigfox, you can now envisage deploying IoT devices that will … Read More
