SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Batteroo Inc. today announced Batteriser, a reusable sleeve that slips over batteries to instantly tap into the remaining energy that is usually thrown away, was tested in a Garmin GPS (with the same test procedure that had been performed in Batteroo's lab) by global independent safety science company UL.
"We chose this GPS device because we believe that it has been designed by a very reputable company with great engineering talents trying to extract as much energy out of the battery by designing a low cut off voltage," said Peter Pietrangelo, VP of Engineering at Batteroo. "Without Batteriser, the Garmin GPS lasted one hour and 43 minutes before the device shut down. With Batteriser, the device lasted 10 hours and 12 minutes – for a 5.94 times longer lifespan, saving consumers' money, and sparing landfills from unnecessary toxic battery waste."
The test was conducted with the same procedure which Batteroo had used in its own lab using a Garmin Approach G3 GPS device with two alkaline AA batteries. Two identical tests were performed, one with and without the Batteriser.
"We believe in the Batteriser technology and its capability to transform the disposable-battery culture, which has created a behemoth $14 billion market that's eating away at the Earth's finite resources," said Bob Roohparvar, CEO and co-founder of Batteroo.
More than 15 billion batteries end up in landfills every year, in addition to the significant environmental impact of mining and sourcing raw materials. A 2010 study by the California Department of Resources Recycling listed disposable battery production and manufacturing as a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. Batteriser, the only device of its kind, can reduce dependence on disposable batteries, and save consumers money while saving our planet.
Crafted from stainless steel, less than .1 millimeters thin, Batteriser is designed to slip over a disposable battery and fit neatly back into a battery-operated device, such as wireless keyboards, noise-canceling headphones, Xbox and Wii controllers, TV remote controls, walkie-talkies, digital scales, electronic toothbrushes, portable radios, flashlights and blood pressure monitors. 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.
UL is an independent safety science organization.
Batteroo Corporation is an innovator of intelligent power management and delivery systems (Batteriser). It is a sleeve that makes contact with the positive and negative ends of a common battery to access its untapped energy at a highly efficient regulated system voltage. Batteriser can extend the life of disposable alkaline batteries by up to 800 percent, saving consumers money and saving landfills from toxic battery waste which would result in soil contamination and a laundry list of negative environmental impacts. Batteriser has been tested and proven compatible on a variety of battery-operated home and office gadgets, including wireless keyboards, noise-cancelling headphones, Xbox and Wii controllers, TV remote controls, walkie-talkies, digital scales, electric toothbrushes, toys, portable radios, flashlights, and blood pressure monitors. The company was cofounded by Bob Roohparvar Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, who holds more than 20 patents in his 30-year career in power management, semiconductors, and consumer products and Frankie Roohparvar well known executive who holds more than 500 patents.
