Abstract Wearable electronics, which include wristwatches, fitness trackers, hearable, temperature sensors, and monitoring sensors to name a few, are an increasingly dominating technology which requires energy autonomy. The battery market for such electronics is steadily increasing, and it is predicted to fill a significant percentage of the battery market by 2030.Batteries for wearable devices have specific requirements to fulfil, as they must be lightweight and small, non-flammable, and they should be based on widely available raw materials. The idea behind the 3DZnBat proof-of-concept is to address pressing challenges in the field of battery for wearable electronics. 3DZnBat looks at the possibility to establish sustainable, non-flammable and conformable solutions for the newly growing market.
