Boost battery life by 800%
There's a new gadget in town which promises to boost the life of any disposable battery by up to 800%. These types of gadgets usually sell for a fair chunk of money - but not this one - this one will be on sale for a measly £1.60.
The Batteriser is 0.1mm thick and, basically, you pop it on an ordinary AA battery like a sleeve, and it'll boost your dying battery back to the original 1.5v.
There's other sizes promised too.
What the gizmo does, is boost the battery's circuitry - when batteries drop below 1.5v, they stop working in your gadgets, but this utilises the 80% of the power that is left unused. This sounds almost too good to be true - but if it works as well as it promises, this could save you money and potentially stop us having to roll the batteries around in remotes to try and get them working.
"The Batteriser has boost circuitry that will boost the voltage from 0.6 volts to 1.5 volts and will maintain voltage at 1.5 – which is a brand new battery," said Bob Roohparvar of Batteriser.
According to the website, it is 'coming soon'.
