On the upside, "he" is pointing IGG backers to this blog which is rather foolish considering his position. :palm: I'm sure Bob Rhubarb would have preferred backers to be kept in the dark for as long a possible.

I wonder what would happen if all the posts on page #288 were altered to say something else.

I'm thinking that pointing a mildly dissatisfied backer at these pages and 288 in particular might actually prove to be their undoing and yield a set for test far quicker than other methods.

There is someone on IGG right now offering to buy Batteroooooos from a dissatisfied recipient, presumably for testing; I can't think of any other reason why anyone would want them. :-DD

I wonder if those IGG comments will still be there tomorrow?

How long before "revivebatteries" accuses Frits Jansen of being an EEVBLOG sympathizer?  :popcorn:  :popcorn:  :popcorn:

Luckily He Who Must Not Be Named was there to apologize for our terrible behavior.

(And now we know he's still watching this thread, let's all wave and say "Hi!"...   :-DD )

Hi Mr Carr, I can't wave as one hand is on keyboard and the other is choking the chicken, but I thought I would say "Hi!" anyway, (I forget is it Mr Carr or Mr King? - Doh, I'm so terrible with names, such a tosser!)  >:D

am i the only one who sees aproblem with that ? the battery gauge now reads 100% .. how will i know when the battery will get so low the batpoo will cut out ? i hope it has a proportional scaled output voltage so that the gauge in my Mac can accurately show how far from empty the batpoo+battery is or else my keyboard may suddenl

No it doesn't, and it's the biggest "gotcha" with the Batteriser that not many people talk about, certainly not Batteroo. The Batteriser renders the battery gauge on every product useless.

OK I will  bite.  What is Page 288 ?  Is it suppose to be a page number in this post?  I see the number of pages at 145 ?

Is it a prediction that these will become available when Page 288 comes up?

Is it possible different monitors show different pages ?

I hate to ask this  - is this some sort of religious meaning?  I am very dumb.

weird

fyi  I am a downer (I wonder if this is the reason ?)  (I do not remember how to become an upper)

Is there a reply that this is about?  I guess the Reply # would be the same

OR maybe I am only seeing half of the posts ?


thanks


FYI this is Reply #7235  (for me)

My profile settings, you are not on the same page as the rest of us.   :P

NO

I checked and the default is 25 and mine was 50.  So I changed it to 25 so I can find Page 288 but that leaves 25 messages but I will look anyway. 

thanks

i smell trouble.... expect lots of people complaining it cuts out 'all of a sudden' ... it showed 100% 2 minutes ago and now it is empty ....

They can avoid this by saying not to use them on metered devices like they did with LED lights.  That still leaves a lot of devices that can use them.  I think there will other problems like physical placement and removal.  I can people using their fingernails on the sleeve to remove them and bending them.  I think removing them will be their downfall.

If they appear in the wild at all that is.

I'm convinced the Batteroos are in the wild. They're just in very limited numbers.

That's why I'm so excited because we're so close now! Just one contact from a backer who recognises an opportunity when he or she sees one!

If you have a Batteriser and you're reading this, get in touch with Dave at EEVBlog https://www.eevblog.com/about/contact/

 Be a hero, and get $100 for your efforts  :-+


It'll be a pleasant experience, I promise! And you can remain anonymous if you wish.

Muttley was right, you're "not on the same page" as the rest of us. The reference is to the page of posts as a whole, not any individual post. Read the posts and note the dominant theme.

I suspect that many people who receive the product will conduct just basic testing and may simply resort to using simple battery testers, I use them often just to give an indication of a batteries suitability, they don't often tell fibs. 


Battery Tester.

Yep, people will throw it out instantly in disgust. That one fact alone is enough to sink the longevity and mass appeal of the product even if it met it's demonstrably untrue performance claims.
At the very least it should come with a warning saying it will render your battery gauge inoperative. all it needs is for someone to use it in a critical product and then they'll get their arse sued.

I love how they changed the title of their IGG campaign.
It used to be:
http://indiegogo.com/projects/batteriser-extend-battery-life-by-up-to-8x/
but now redirects to the new title:
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/batteroo-extend-battery-life-significantly#/
