Most of the research and development for batteries goes into creating batteries with higher capacities to keep our power hungry devices as long as possible. We have not been seeing a lot of innovation on our normal everyday dry cell batteries that power a whole lot of our other devices from toys to remotes. Tethercell plans to change all that. With the Tethercell, you can turn any AAA battery into an app-enabled, smart battery with wireless Bluetooth.
The Tethercell is the size of an AA battery but is powered by an AAA battery. It uses Bluetooth to communicate with your smart phone via a free downloadable app. With the app, you can see the charge level on the battery and the app will notify you when the battery is about to run out of juice. This is perfect for smoke alarms. No more waking up at 3 am because of the low battery alert.
However, the best part about the Tethercell app is that you can use it to remotely switch off the device it is powering with just a press of a button on the app. If you are getting annoyed by the noises made by your kid’s electronic toy, just shut it down with a single press. Fed up with your spouse’s channel surfing? Disable the remote. However, do not hold us responsible for the consequences of doing this.
Wait, there is more. Using the app, you can even set a schedule on when the battery powered devices can be used. This is great for controlling playtime on electronic toys.
