LG develops a new 6-sided battery for longer-lasting smartwatches

LG's new hexagonal battery will allow smartwatches to enjoy much longer battery lives

With smartwatches becoming more common, LG has just unveiled its latest battery from its battery arm, LG Chem. The company has started shipping hexagonal-shaped batteries that promise 25% more capacity than circular batteries.


These new batteries will provide an additional four hours average use, without having smartwatch owners having to go into low-power mode, or the smartwatch completely running out of juice. LG has said that it's working on more unusually-shaped batteries, something that will continue to add more battery life into the wearables.
