Application: Curved battery-pack devices and accessories (Patent ID: US20240097176A1)

Meta Platforms Inc. has filed a patent for a curved battery cell and pack designed to conform to the average body contours of individuals. The curved battery cell includes positive and negative terminals, curved electrodes with non-uniform radii of curvature matching body contours, and an outer case. The curved battery pack consists of multiple curved battery cells with outer surfaces matching body contours, joined by a bendable member.

The patent claims detail the specific configurations of the curved battery cell and pack, including the use of spline curves to match body contours, varying radii of curvature, and inner surfaces shaped to face users' bodies. The method outlined involves curving flat electrode assemblies using matching spline surfaces to achieve the desired non-uniform curvature. These innovations aim to optimize the fit and comfort of battery components in wearable devices such as head-mounted displays.
