[0015] It is to be noted that, in the embodiments of the application, an "electronic device" (or called a "terminal" and a "mobile terminal") used here includes, but not limited to, a device configured to receive and/or send a communication signal through a wireline connection (for example, a Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), a Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), a digital cable, a direct cable connection and/or other types of data connections/networks), and/or through a wireless interface (of, for example, a cellular network, a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), a digital television network like a Digital Video Broadcasting Handheld (DVB-H) network, a satellite network, an Amplitude Modulation (AM)-Frequency Modulation (FM) broadcast transmitter and/or other communication terminals).

Examples of the mobile terminal include, but not limited to: a satellite phone or a cell phone; a Personal Communication System (PCS) terminal capable of integrating a cellular radio phone and data processing, faxing and data communication capabilities; a radio phone, a pager, Internet/intranet access, a Web browser, a memo pad, a calendar and a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) equipped with a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver; and a conventional laptop and/or palmtop receiver or another electronic device including a radio phone transceiver.

[0016] The electronic device may be various devices capable of acquiring data from the outside and processing the data, or, the electronic device may be various devices provided with built-in batteries and capable of acquiring currents from the outside and charging the batteries, for example, a mobile phone, a tablet computer, a computing device or an information display device.

[0017] As shown in Fig. 1 to Fig. 10, a battery 100 for an electronic device 200 according to the embodiments of the application includes a body module 1, a component module 2, a wrapping layer 3, a first insulating film 4, a second insulating film 5 and at least one easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6.

[0018] Specifically, as shown in Fig. 1, the body module 1 may be a cell body of the battery 100. Some substance and parts, such as an electrolyte, capable of generating electric potential energy or storing the electric potential energy may be wrapped in the body module 1. The body module 1 is provided with a first surface 11 and a second surface 12 that are oppositely arranged. The component module 2 is coupled to the body module 1, and may include an electrical component 22 configured to test performance of the battery 100. The wrapping layer 3 may be configured to wrap the component module 2 to protect the component module 2.

[0019] As shown in Fig. 1 to Fig. 2 and Fig. 5 to Fig. 8, the first insulating film 4 is arranged on the first surface 11, a part of the first insulating film 4 extends to the component module 2 and is adhered to the wrapping layer 3; the second insulating film 5 is arranged on the second surface 12, and a part of the second insulating film 5 extends to the component module 2 and is adhered to the wrapping layer 3. By virtue of this arrangement, the body module 1 and component module 2 that are originally independent of each other can be integrated through the first insulating film 4 and the second insulating film 5. The first insulating film 4 and the second insulating film may be film structures formed from an insulating material (for example, polyethylene (PE)), and may be sticky to package the body module 1.

[0020] As shown in Fig. 2, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be an auxiliary part for dismounting the battery 100, and may include an adhesion portion 61, an adhesive-free region 62 and a hand pulling portion 63. The adhesion portion 61 is located at one end of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 and adhered to the second surface 12. The hand pulling portion 63 is located at the other end of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, the hand pulling portion 63 bypasses the component module 2 and is then overlapped with the first insulating film 4, the hand pulling portion 63 is located on the side, away from the component module 2, of the first insulating film 4. The adhesive-free region 62 is located between the adhesion portion 61 and the hand pulling portion 63, and the adhesive-free region 62 is bonded to the wrapping layer 3.

[0021] It is to be noted that, in the adhesive-free region 62, at least one surface in the surface, facing the component module 2, of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 and the surface, away from the component module 2, of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is a surface with relatively poor stickiness or without stickiness.

[0022] The easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is an adhesion material and includes a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) thin film and rubber glue. Glue (for example, rubber glue) may be arranged on at least one side in upper and lower lateral surfaces of the TPU thin film. The rubber glue includes the following raw materials in parts by weight: 30 to 50 parts of thermoplastic rubber, 30 to 50 parts of a C5 petroleum resin, 20 to 40 parts of a terpene resin, 1 to 10 parts of a plasticizer, 0.1 to 2 parts of a pigment, 1 to 5 parts of polyisobutylene and 100 to 2,000 parts of toluene. The TPU thin film is 30 to 100 microns thick, and the rubber glue is 20 to 50 microns thick. The rubber glue is applied to the TPU thin film in a coating manner.

[0023] When the battery 100 is dismounted from a shell 7 of the electronic device 200, the hand pulling portion 63 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be pulled to pry the body module 1 and the component module 2 up. Since the adhesion portion 61 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is adhered to the second surface 12, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can drive the battery 100 to move, so that the battery 100 can be dismounted from the shell 7. The adhesive-free region 62 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is bonded to the wrapping layer 3, so that resistance to the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be reduced when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 starts to be pulled, and the probability that the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is broken may be reduced.

[0024] In the related art, a wrapping layer with relatively high stickiness wraps the component module, and because an adhesion stress between the wrapping layer with the relatively high stickiness and a first insulating layer or a second insulating layer or an adhesion stress between the wrapping layer and the easy-to-pull adhesive tape is relatively strong, when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape drives the battery, stress concentration is easily formed at the position, contacting with an edge of the battery, of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape, making the easy-to-pull adhesive tape be easily broken by the component module.

[0025] According to the battery 100 for the electronic device 200 in the embodiments of the application, the body module 1 and the component module 2 are integrated by use of the first insulating film 4 and the second insulating film 5, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is provided with the adhesive-free region 62 which is bonded to the wrapping layer 3, so that when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is pulled, an external force can be transmitted to the whole battery 100 to exert uniform stress on the body module 1, the component module 2 and the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, thereby reducing the probability of stress concentration at a specific position of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6. By virtue of the solution, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can be effectively prevented from being broken, meanwhile, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can also be prevented from deforming the films wrapping the body module 1 or the component module 2, and the body module 1 and the component module 2 can be conveniently dismounted from the shell 7. In addition, arrangement of the adhesive-free region can effectively reduce adhesion of an adhesive substance on the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 to the body module 1 or the component module 2, and thus certain surface cleanliness can still be ensured in a dismounting process of the battery 100.

[0026] According to an embodiment of the application, stickiness of both the first insulating film 4 and the second insulating film 5 is higher than stickiness of the wrapping layer 3. Therefore, structural strength of the component module 2 can be strengthened, and integrity of the body module 1 and the component module 2 can also be improved. When the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is pulled, the external force can be transmitted to the whole battery 100 to exert uniform stress on the body module 1, the component module 2 and the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, thereby reducing the probability of stress concentration at a specific position of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6. For further improving the structural strength of the component module 2 and preventing the component module 2 from being damaged when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is pulled, in an example shown in Fig. 5, Fig. 7 and Fig. 8, a protective plate 21 may be arranged in the component module 2. Of course, the protective plate 21 is also beneficial for protecting the electrical component 22 in the component module 2.

[0027] According to an embodiment of the application, at least one through hole 33 is formed at the position, bonded to the first insulating film 4, of the wrapping layer 3. As shown in Fig. 1 and Fig. 5, at least one through hole 33 is formed in the wrapping layer 3. When the first insulating film 4 is bonded to the wrapping layer 3, the first insulating film 4 covers the at least one through hole 33, and when the first insulating film 4 is pressed at the position of the at least one through hole 33, a part of the first insulating film 4 may be pressed into the at least one through hole 33 so that the first insulating film 4 in the at least one through hole 3 can be directly adhered to the component module 2 to couple the body module 1 to the component module 2 more stably, thereby further improving the integrity of the body module 1 and the device body 2. Furthermore, as shown in Fig. 1, there may be multiple through holes 33 that are spaced, so that coupling stability of the body module 1 and the component module 2 may further be improved, and the integrity of the body module 1 and the component module 2 may be enhanced.

[0028] As shown in Fig. 5 and Fig. 6, for further improving the integrity of the body module 1 and the component module 2, in some examples of the application, a part of an edge of an aluminum-plastic film 16 for wrapping the body module 1 extends into the component module 2 and is wrapped with the wrapping layer 3. Furthermore, as shown in Fig. 6, the first insulating film 4 or the second insulating film 5 covers a portion, for connecting with the component module 2, of the aluminum-plastic film 16. It can be understood that a part of the aluminum-plastic film 16 extends into the wrapping layer 3 and the first insulating film 4 or the second insulating film 5 covers the portion, for connecting with the wrapping layer 3, of the aluminum-plastic film 16, so that an edge of the wrapping layer 3 can also be prevented from being tilted.

[0029] According to an embodiment of the application, as shown in Fig. 5 to Fig. 8, a battery tab 13 of the body module 1 extends from the body module 1 and is wrapped with the wrapping layer 3, and the battery tab 13 includes a third surface 14 and fourth surface 15 arranged opposite to each other, so that the battery 100 may be endowed with higher integrity. The wrapping layer 3 may include a first wrapping portion 31 and a second wrapping portion 32 coupled to the first wrapping portion 31, the first wrapping portion 31 wraps the side, close to the third surface 14, of the battery tab 13, the second wrapping portion 32 wraps the side, close to the fourth surface 15, of the battery tab 13, and at least one of the first wrapping portion 31 and the second wrapping portion 32 extends wriggly. It can be understood that, in the component module 2, the wrapping layer 3 may be arranged in a lamination manner to form a multilayer structure, so that the structural strength of the component module 2 can be strengthened, and the component module 2 can be prevented from being deformed in a pulling process of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6.

[0030] According to some embodiments of the application, a portion, bonded to the at least one easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, of the wrapping layer 3 is a Teflon film. It is to be noted that the Teflon film may be a film structure made from a Teflon material. Teflon may be called polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or may be called a "non-stick coating", an "easy-to-clean material", "king of plastic" or "halar". This material has the characteristics of resistance to acids, resistance to alkalis and resistance to various organic solvents. In addition, PTFE has the characteristic of resistance to high temperatures and a lubrication effect, and is extremely low in friction coefficient.

[0031] Of course, the structure of the wrapping layer 3 is not limited thereto. For example, in some other embodiments of the application, the portion, bonded to the at least one easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, of the wrapping layer 3 is coated with a Teflon layer, so that cost may be reduced. For another example, the whole wrapping layer 3 is a Teflon film, so that a process for the wrapping layer 3 may be simplified. For another example, the wrapping layer 3 is a silicone adhesive layer. A silicone adhesive (or called SILICONE) is an organosilicon product like an ointment, and, after contacting with water in the air, may be cured into a tough rubber solid. The silicone adhesive is mainly divided into a de-acetic type, a dealcoholized type, a deaminated type and a de-propyl type, and all polymers including chemical components polydimethylsiloxane and silicon dioxide may be called silicone. The silicone adhesive is usually used for adhering and sealing glass, and thus is called a glass cement. The silicone adhesive is strong in adhesive strength and tensile strength, and also has the characteristics of weather resistance, vibration resistance, moisture resistance, odor resistance and adaptability to great thermal changes.

[0032] For improving coupling stability of the battery 100 and other parts, in an example of the application, as shown in Fig. 2, an adhesion region 17 is arranged on the sidewall surface, adhered to the adhesion portion 61, of the body module 1, and stickiness in the adhesion region 17 gradually increases in a direction from the adhesive-free region 62 to the adhesion portion 61. That is, the second surface 12 is suitable to be adhered to the shell 7 of the electronic device 200, and the adhesion region 17 may be arranged on the second surface 12.

[0033] It can be understood that, for conveniently pulling one end of the battery 100 up by use of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, a material with relatively low stickiness may be arranged at a position close to the end portion. For improving the coupling stability and firmness between the battery 100 and the other parts, a material with relatively high stickiness is arranged at a portion close to the other end of the battery 100. The adhesive-free region of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is close to one end of the battery 100 and the adhesion portion 61 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is close to the other end of the battery 100. For example, as shown in Fig. 2, on the surface, for connecting with the adhesion portion 61 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, of the body module 1, the stickiness of the adhesion region 17 gradually decreases in a direction from left to right (a left-right direction shown in Fig. 2).

[0034] For conveniently pulling the hand pulling portion 63, in an example of the application, the hand pulling portion 63 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be a ring structure, and may also be a strip structure or a flaky structure. According to an embodiment of the application, there may be multiple easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6 that are spaced. Therefore, when the body module 1 and the component module 2 are dismounted from the shell 7 by use of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, the external force may be applied to the multiple easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6, so that the external force may be decentralized to the battery 100, and the battery 100 may be uniformly stressed.

[0035] In an example shown in Fig. 2, there are two easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6. Furthermore, the two easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6 may form an intersected structure, and through the intersected structure of the adhesive tapes, coupling reliability of the adhesive tapes may be improved to prevent a dismounting failure caused by breakage of the adhesive tapes in a dismounting process of the battery 100. The two easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6 are intersected in a center of the body module 1, and end portions of the two easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6 extend towards four corners of the body module 1 respectively, and are adhered to the four corners of the body module 1 respectively. Through this structure, the coupling reliability of the body module 1 and the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be improved to prevent the dismounting failure caused by breakage of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 in the dismounting process of the battery 100. Of course, an arrangement manner for the two easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6 is not limited to the above arrangement example. For example, the two easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6 may be arranged in parallel with each other.

[0036] In each embodiment, an adhesive may be arranged at any position of the adhesive tapes. For example, the adhesive may be arranged at two end portions of each adhesive tape and an intersection of the two adhesive tapes only, and the adhesive is adhered to the battery 100. That is, the battery 100 is coupled to the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 through five points. Therefore, particularly in the solution that the four end portions of the two adhesive tapes are adhered to the four corners of the adhesion portion 61 respectively, the coupling reliability of the body module 1 and the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may further be improved to prevent the dismounting failure caused by breakage of the adhesive tape in the dismounting process of the battery 100, and meanwhile, materials are saved.

[0037] As shown in Fig. 1 to Fig. 11, an electronic device 200 according to the embodiments of the application includes a shell 7 and the abovementioned battery 100 for the electronic device 200.

[0038] Specifically, the shell 7 may define a mounting cavity 73, and components (for example, a main board) of the electronic device 200 may be mounted in the mounting cavity 73 and coupled to the shell 7. As shown in Fig. 3, Fig. 9 and Fig. 10, at least one reinforcing rib 71 is arranged on an inner surface of the shell 7, and the at least one reinforcing rib 71 may be configured to support the shell 7 to strengthen structural strength of the shell 7. Moreover, the at least one reinforcing rib 71 divides the mounting cavity 73 into multiple independent cavities 74, and the components of the electronic device 200 may be placed in the corresponding independent cavities 74. As shown in Fig. 3, the battery 100 is placed in the independent cavity 74 and locates close to the corresponding reinforcing rib 71.

[0039] According to the electronic device 200 in the embodiments of the application, a body module 1 and a component module 2 are integrated by use of a first insulating film 4 and a second insulating film 5, an easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is provided with an adhesive-free region 62 which is bonded to a wrapping layer 3, so that when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is pulled, an external force can be transmitted to the whole battery 100 to exert uniform stress on the body module 1, the component module 2 and the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, thereby reducing the probability of stress concentration at a specific position of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6. By virtue of the solution, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can be effectively prevented from being broken, meanwhile, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can also be prevented from deforming the films wrapping the body module 1 or the component module 2, and the body module 1 and the component module 2 can be conveniently dismounted from the shell 7.

[0040] According to an embodiment of the application, as shown in Fig. 8, a part of the adhesive-free region 62 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is opposite to one reinforcing rib 71, a groove 72 is formed in a portion, corresponding to the adhesive-free region 62, of the reinforcing rib 71, and an opening of the groove 72 faces the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6. In such a manner, when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is pulled, a hand pulling portion 63 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be inclined towards the inside of the groove 72 (direction indicated by the arrowhead a in Fig. 7 and Fig. 8), and the body module 1 and the component module 2 may be pulled out along an inclination direction of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, so that the external force may be uniformly transmitted to the battery 100 to avoid the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 being broken by excessive local stress.

[0041] As shown in Fig. 5 and Fig. 7 to Fig. 8, according to some embodiments of the application, the adhesive-free region 62 is located in a corner of the component module 2, and the corner is located between the shell 7 and the corresponding reinforcing rib 71. When the battery 100 is dismounted from the shell 7 of the electronic device 200, the hand pulling portion 63 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be pulled to slowly pry the body module 1 and the component module 2 up to exert uniform stress on the body module 1, the component module 2 and the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, thereby reducing the probability of stress concentration at a specific position of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6. By virtue of the solution, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can be effectively prevented from being broken, meanwhile, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can also be prevented from deforming the films wrapping the body module 1 or the component module 2, and the body module 1 and the component module 2 can be conveniently dismounted from the shell 7.

[0042] The electronic device 200 according to the embodiments of the application will be described below with reference to Fig. 1 to Fig. 11 in detail. It is to be understood that the following descriptions are only exemplary descriptions and not intended to form specific limits to the application.

[0043] As shown in Fig. 9 to Fig. 11, an electronic device 200 includes a shell 7, a display unit8, a button assembly 9 and a battery 100.

[0044] As shown in Fig. 11, the display unit 8 and the button assembly 9 may be embedded on an outer surface of the shell 7. A mounting cavity 73 may be defined in the shell 7, and a main board and battery 100 of the electronic device 200 may be mounted in the mounting cavity 72 and coupled to the shell 7. As shown in Fig. 3, Fig. 9 and Fig. 10, at least one reinforcing rib 71 is arranged on an inner surface of the shell 7, and the at least one reinforcing rib 71 may be configured to support the shell 7 to strengthen structural strength of the shell 7. Moreover, the at least one reinforcing rib 71 divides the mounting cavity 73 into multiple independent cavities 74, and the battery 100 is placed in one independent cavity 74 and close to the corresponding reinforcing rib 71.

[0045] As shown in Fig. 1 to Fig. 8, the battery 100 includes a body module 1, a component module 2, a wrapping layer 3, a first insulating film 4, a second insulating film 5 and at least one easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6.

[0046] Specifically, as shown in Fig. 1, the body module 1 may be a cell body of the battery 100. Some substance and parts, such as an electrolyte, capable of generating electric potential energy or storing the electric potential energy may be wrapped in the body module 1. The body module 1 is provided with a first surface 11 and a second surface 12 that are oppositely arranged. The component module 2 is coupled to the body module 1, and may include an electrical component 22 configured to test performance of the battery 100. The wrapping layer 3 may be configured to wrap the component module 2, and the wrapping layer 3 may be configured to protect the component module 2.

[0047] As shown in Fig. 1 to Fig. 2 and Fig. 5 to Fig. 8, the first insulating film 4 is arranged on the first surface 11, a part of the first insulating film 4 extends to the component module 2 and is adhered to the wrapping layer 3; the second insulating film 5 is arranged on the second surface 12, and a part of the second insulating film 5 extends to the component module 2 and is adhered to the wrapping layer 3. By virtue of this arrangement, the body module 1 and component module 2 that are originally independent of each other can be integrated through the first insulating film 4 and the second insulating film 5. The first insulating film 4 and the second insulating film may be film structures formed from an insulating material, and may be sticky to package the body module 1 or the component module 2. Both the first insulating film 4 and the second insulating film 5 may be PE insulating films, and the first insulating film 4 and the second insulating film 5 may be located on an edge of the body module 1 or close to the edge of the body module 1.

[0048] Stickiness of both the first insulating film 4 and the second insulating film 5 is higher than stickiness of the wrapping layer 3. Therefore, structural strength of the component module 2 can be strengthened, and integrity of the body module 1 and the component module 2 can also be improved. When the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is pulled, an external force can be transmitted to the whole battery 100 to exert uniform stress on the body module 1, the component module 2 and the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, thereby reducing the probability of stress concentration at a specific position of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6. For further improving the structural strength of the component module 2, as shown in Fig. 5, Fig. 7 and Fig. 8, a protective plate 21 may be arranged in the component module 2 to prevent the component module 2 from being damaged when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is pulled.

[0049] As shown in Fig. 1 and Fig. 5, multiple through holes 33 that are spaced are formed in the wrapping layer 3. When the first insulating film 4 is bonded to the wrapping layer 3, the first insulating film 4 covers the multiple through holes 33, and when the first insulating film 4 is pressed at the positions of the multiple through holes 33, a part of the first insulating film 4 may be pressed into the multiple through holes 33 so that the first insulating film 4 in the multiple through holes 3 may be directly adhered to the component module 2 to couple the body module 1 to the component module 2 more stably, thereby further improving the integrity of the body module 1 and the device body 2.

[0050] The whole wrapping layer 3 may be a Teflon film. It is to be noted that the Teflon film may be a film structure made from a Teflon material. Teflon may be called PTFE or may be called a "non-stick coating", an "easy-to-clean material", "king of plastic" or "halar". This material has the characteristics of resistance to acids, resistance to alkalis and resistance to various organic solvents. In addition, PTFE has the characteristic of resistance to high temperatures and a lubrication effect, and is extremely low in friction coefficient.

[0051] As shown in Fig. 5 and Fig. 6, a part of an edge of an aluminum-plastic film 16 for wrapping the body module 1 extends into the component module 2 and is wrapped with the wrapping layer 3. The first insulating film 4 or the second insulating film 5 covers a portion, for connecting with the component module 2, of the aluminum-plastic film 16. Therefore, the integrity of the body module 1 and the component module 2 may be improved. It can be understood that a part of the aluminum-plastic film 16 extends into the wrapping layer 3 and the first insulating film 4 or the second insulating film 5 covers a portion, for connecting with the wrapping layer 3, of the aluminum-plastic film 16, so that an edge of the wrapping layer 3 may also be prevented from being tilted.

[0052] As shown in Fig. 5 to Fig. 8, a battery tab 13 of the body module 1 extends from the body module 1 and is wrapped with the wrapping layer 3, and the battery tab 13 includes a third surface 14 and fourth surface 15 arranged opposite to each other, so that the battery 100 may be endowed with higher integrity. The wrapping layer 3 may include a first wrapping portion 31 and a second wrapping portion 32 coupled to the first wrapping portion 31, the first wrapping portion 31 wraps the side, close to the third surface 14, of the battery tab 13, the second wrapping portion 32 wraps the side, close to the fourth surface 15, of the battery tab 13, and at least one of the first wrapping portion 31 and the second wrapping portion 32 extends wriggly. It can be understood that, in the component module 2, the wrapping layer 3 may be arranged in a lamination manner to form a multilayer structure, so that the structural strength of the component module 2 can be strengthened, and the component module 2 can be prevented from being deformed in a pulling process of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6.

[0053] As shown in Fig. 2, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be an auxiliary part for dismounting the battery 100, and may include an adhesion portion 61, an adhesive-free region 62 and a hand pulling portion 63. The adhesion portion 61 is located at one end of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 and adhered to the second surface 12, the hand pulling portion 63 is located at the other end of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, the hand pulling portion 63 bypasses the component module 2 and is then overlapped with the first insulating film 4, the hand pulling portion 63 is located on the side, away from the component module 2, of the first insulating film 4, the adhesive-free region 62 is located between the adhesion portion 61 and the hand pulling portion 63, and the adhesive-free region 62 is bonded to the wrapping layer 3.

[0054] The easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is an adhesion material and includes a TPU thin film and rubber glue. The rubber glue may be arranged on at least one side in upper and lower lateral surfaces of the TPU thin film. The rubber glue includes the following raw materials in parts by weight: 30 to 50 parts of thermoplastic rubber, 30 to 50 parts of a C5 petroleum resin, 20 to 40 parts of a terpene resin, 1 to 10 parts of a plasticizer, 0.1 to 2 parts of a pigment, 1 to 5 parts of polyisobutylene and 100 to 2,000 parts of toluene. The TPU thin film is 30 to 100 microns thick, and the rubber glue is 20 to 50 microns thick. The rubber glue is applied to the TPU thin film in a coating manner.

[0055] The hand pulling portion 63 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be a ring structure. There may be multiple easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6 that are spaced, and the multiple easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6 are parallel to one another. Therefore, when the body module 1 and the component module 2 are dismounted from the shell 7 by use of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, the external force may be applied to the multiple easy-to-pull adhesive tapes 6, so that the external force may be decentralized to the battery 100, and the battery 100 may be uniformly stressed.

[0056] For improving coupling stability of the battery 100 and other parts, in an example of the application, as shown in Fig. 2, an adhesion region 17 is arranged on the sidewall surface, adhered to the adhesion portion 61, of the body module 1, and stickiness in the adhesion region 17 gradually increases in a direction from the adhesive-free region 62 to the adhesion portion 61. It can be understood that, for conveniently pulling one end of the battery 100 up by use of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, a material with relatively low stickiness may be arranged at a position close to the end portion; and for improving the coupling stability and firmness of the battery 100 and the other parts, a material with relatively high stickiness is arranged at a portion close to the other end of the battery 100. The adhesive-free region of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is close to one end of the battery 100 and the adhesion portion 61 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is close to the other end of the battery 100. For example, as shown in Fig. 2, on the surface, for connecting with the adhesion portion 61 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, of the body module 1, the stickiness of the adhesion region 17 gradually decreases in a direction from left to right.

[0057] As shown in Fig. 8, a part of the adhesive-free region 62 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is opposite to one reinforcing rib 71, a groove 72 is formed in a portion, corresponding to the adhesive-free region 62, of the reinforcing rib 71, and an opening of the groove 72 faces the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6. In such a manner, when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is pulled, the hand pulling portion 63 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be inclined towards the inside of the groove 72, and the body module 1 and the component module 2 may be pulled out along an inclination direction of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, so that the external force may be uniformly transmitted to the battery 100 to avoid the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 being broken by excessive local stress.

[0058] As shown in Fig. 5 and Fig. 7 to Fig. 8, the adhesive-free region 62 is located in a corner of the component module 2, and the corner is located between the shell 7 and the corresponding reinforcing rib 71. When the battery 100 is dismounted from the shell 7 of the electronic device 200, the hand pulling portion 63 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be pulled to slowly pry the body module 1 and the component module 2 up to exert uniform stress on the body module 1, the component module 2 and the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, thereby reducing the probability of stress concentration at a specific position of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6. By virtue of the solution, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can be effectively prevented from being broken, meanwhile, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can also be prevented from deforming the films wrapping the body module 1 or the component module 2, and the body module 1 and the component module 2 can be conveniently dismounted from the shell 7.

[0059] In the related art, a wrapping layer with relatively high stickiness wraps the component module, and because an adhesion stress between the wrapping layer with the relatively high stickiness and a first insulating layer or a second insulating layer is relatively strong, when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape drives the battery, stress concentration is easily formed at the position, contacting with an edge of the battery, of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape, making the easy-to-pull adhesive tape be easily broken by the component module.

[0060] In the embodiments of the application, when the battery 100 is dismounted from the shell 7 of the electronic device 200, the hand pulling portion 63 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is overlapped with the first insulating layer, as shown in Fig. 5 and Fig. 7. The hand pulling portion 63 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 may be pulled to pry the body module 1 and the component module 2 up, so that resistance may be reduced when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 starts to be pulled. Because the adhesion portion 61 of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is adhered to the second surface 12, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can drive the battery 100 to move, so that the battery 100 may be dismounted from the shell 7.

[0061] In such a manner, the body module 1 and the component module 2 are integrated by use of the first insulating film 4 and the second insulating film 5, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is provided with the adhesive-free region 62 which is bonded to the wrapping layer 3, so that when the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 is pulled, the external force can be transmitted to the whole battery 100 to exert uniform stress on the body module 1, the component module 2 and the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6, thereby reducing the probability of stress concentration at a specific position of the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6. By virtue of the solution, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can be effectively prevented from being broken, meanwhile, the easy-to-pull adhesive tape 6 can also be prevented from deforming the films wrapping the body module 1 or the component module 2, and the body module 1 and the component module 2 can be conveniently dismounted from the shell 7.
