An incredible new gadget can boost the life of any disposable battery by up to 800%.
Better still, it’s going on sale this year for just £1.60.
The Batteriser is just 0.1mm thick and works like a ‘sleeve’ on ordinary AA batteries (and other sizes) – by boosting the voltage of fading batteries back up to their original 1.5v.
Normally, when a battery drops below 1.5v, it stops working in most gadgets – so we throw away batteries with 80% of their power left unused.
The Batteriser’s boost circuitry means that batteries are able to burn up that remaining energy.
‘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.
The company aims to seek funding via crowdfunding site Indiegogo and launch later this year.
