Battery life consistently ranks among the top concerns for IoT deployments. Maintenance and battery replacement cycles play a significant role in determining the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) of many IoT solutions. As the number of IoT applications continues to grow, manufacturers are seeking new, battery-less methods of powering their devices and improving energy efficiency.
