According to Batteroo, most devices only tap 20 percent of a battery’s energy before the device stops functioning, and the batteries are thrown in the trash. Batteroo’s Batteriser lets users tap into the remaining 80 percent of energy in a battery.
Batteriser is a reusable sleeve that slips over new and most used batteries. The sleeve is crafted from stainless-steel at less than .1 millimeters thin. It slips over the battery and fits back into the device. The sleeve makes contact with the positive and negative ends of a common battery to access untapped remaining energy at a steady state system voltage.
Batteriser will be available for AA, AAA, C, and D-cell batteries. Retail prices will start at under $10.00 for a four pack of Batteriser sleeves.
Batteroo Corporation was cofounded by Bob Roohparvar PhD, a professor at California State University, East Bay, teaching computer science and computer engineering courses.
Dr. Kiumars Parvin, Professor of Physics at San Jose State University said, “We tested the Batteriser sleeve in our lab and we confirmed that the Batteriser taps into the 80 percent of energy that is usually thrown away.”
