Battery Application Note
Developing the Internet of Things with a low power technology has a significance in case of designing devices with a fully autonomous energy supply, that communicate for several years without periodic maintenance. This is why most of Sigfox connected devices are powered by a battery, whose electrical sizing is critical for the proper functioning and the sustainability of the device.
Despite the very low consumption required by Sigfox communication, not all batteries are compliant for a Sigfox device.
The goal of this document is to present the main selection criteria of a battery for designing a Sigfox connected device
