Report:Samsung and LG to provide batteries for iWatch According to a new report, Apple will use lithium-ion batteries for its still unconfirmed iWatch smartwatch.
The batteries will be provided by Samsung, LG Chem and Tianjin Lishen Battery, say the sources.

"Apple will utilize LG Chem's stepped battery since it offers better longevity than others and can be applied for different shapes," added one industry source. Stepped batteries have about 15 percent more energy efficiency due to using layers of 'stepped' batteries which also conserve space.

After years of rumors, Apple is expected to finally unveil the watch this fall. The device will have an OLED screen and will integrate deeply with other iOS products.
