Abstract

Miniaturization of the personal paging device to a size that may be incorporated within a wrist watch requires a reduction in battery size. This results in a reduction of available power to the device. The standard motor and beeper alerts draw a significant amount of current when in use. There is a need to reduce this drain so that the battery life may be extended as much as possible.
