Samsung showcased "band-shaped" batteries that can be worn like a band. Identified as "Stripe" and "Band", that the batteries can be used in wearables or could also be used in T-shirts, jewellery or as even hair clips for women.

Samsung claims that the design of the "band-shaped" cells improves their battery life by up to 50 percent, but still lacks in capacity and is unfit for a thorough use as a battery for wearables. The batteries under test conditions can be contorted to the shape of a wrist.

On the other hand, LG's flexible "wire battery," is a hexagonal shaped battery that looks like a watch strap or bracelet. Its wire-shaped body makes it fit for use in wearables and can last for a day long of usage, a representative for LG claims.

The batteries are not just meant for hypothetical judgement, but will hit the markets until they are further developed to be fit for commercial sale.
