On subdermal battery protection
So, [insert typical lurker comment].
I am currently working on and testing a few ideas I have that require a small LiPo battery (https://www.adafruit.com/product/1317) , charging module, and qi charger, and I am wanting to discuss preventative measures and detection methods for subdermal batteries. At the moment, I intend on encasing the battery in a bio-inert metal box, which is open ended, and filling it with silicone and having the whole implant coated with silicone (though I haven't found a service for this, and am open to alternatives).
The main focus of my curiousity around the topic is about alternative casings/ways to secure the battery in case of a leak, and possible means of detection of possible leaks. Would a small pouch, which will decay when exposed to battery acid, filled with a dye and placed next to the battery do anything other than take up space; is it even feasible?
Please feel free to discuss possible failures/dangers of the battery and criticisms! Really any information or thoughts would be helpful at this point. I'm rather unversed when it comes to the implantation aspects, and really only have my imagination to guide me here, which isn't the most useful tool when you fail to imagine the limitations. (I am also still trying to read through the threads, so any links to this discussed in prior threads would be greatly appreciated!)
