With many of those"devices" the battery compartment is rather touchy about the cell manufacturers they will take. Some will not take a Duracell, as they are just a tiny bit too long, and the pip on the end of the cell is not long enough to touch the contact in the positive side. Others are too thick to fit in there as well and have the cover close properly. Funny enough the cells that fit the best are the cheap and nasty ones, which are also the lightest ones, as they are mostly made with sawdust as filler as opposed to actual active material.

I've had that very experience today with a colour changing Christmas bauble, Duracells just wouldn't work in it, maybe it needed a Batteroo.

JUST IN,
A real Butteriser has been tested in Probes the Monkey!

Revivebatteries,
    The people in this forum may enjoy a good "Bob Bashing," but they are not trolls.

     Dave presented a cogent argument on why this product will not live up to Batteroo's claims. Batteroo responded by "trolling" Dave and the public with lies, bullshit, suspicious behavior, rhetoric, and anecdotes. Dave is a man of integrity, and Bob challenged that, so everyone is understandably pissed. i.e. Bob/Batteroo drew first blood.

    You have Batteroos? Give Dave a couple. He will do an honest analysis. If he's wrong, he'll shout it from the mountains, and everyone in the room, including myself, will eat some humble pie. Otherwise, you're bullshitting, just like Bob.

No one appears to have asked Bob about the 9v version he promised to send them in 2016.

I could never figure out how it could be made to fit. Between segregated springs or snap on style connectors, I just can't get my head around how it'd work.

There was also a mention at one point of a version being released for rechargeable batteries but that whole conversation seemed to fall flat on its face pretty quick.

Bob provided an IGG update on the 9V Batteroooo yesterday:


"We are still working on the 9 volt batteroo IC, but will keep our promise to deliver to all IGG customers when it's complete!"

Another custom IC on the way! More Batterooo "enjoy"ment to follow, do these guys never sleep? :)

Who uses all of these archaic primary cell types these days? I haven't owned anything that takes C or D cells in the last 20 years :-//

Maybe they could put the new connector on the bottom of the battery and connect it at the top with clips that go in from the side. I think that would save the most space.

The implication is they always sleep on the job

I have a radio that takes C cells, and a few Maglite torches that take D cells. Radios and torches are useful things in natural disasters where recharging is impossible if the power goes out.

So they aren't obsolete quite yet.

Yeah, I've still got a 4D Maglite torch, although I've since gotten much smaller, brighter, and more efficacious torches which run on multiples of 18650's or AA's; but the good old 4D Mag is still the best torch/baton combo. (It's the perfect (defensive) weapon to carry at night in New Zealand (In relation to NZ laws about carrying weapons in public places), because if Police question you about it, it's not a weapon, it's a torch. If you get attacked, it's a weapon and a torch! But I digress...) 
If Batteroos worked on that it could be a good use for them. But 4 D cells stacked lengthwise, with a Batteroo on each cell, might make the 4 cell battery too long for the tube.

Oh, and I haven't seen anything that runs on C cells for years!

To add to Batteroo's woes and list of issues, the AAA version at least seems to be rather delicate ...



Perhaps this is why Rob said they should be handled carefully?

I know there are plenty of old Maglites out there that people don't want to get rid of and I have a few, but, I much prefer the efficiency, brightness, run time, battery saver modes and reliability of a modern LED torch that runs on inexpensive and common 18650 lithium cells and there's no reason why I can't have a set of charged spare cells for emergencies.

"plan to be" in one comment, "will be" in the other. Maybe he accidentally forgot to weasel-word that second one.

It's all futile anyway because the Sony wireless mic will have a built in DC-DC converter :palm:.

Oh well, more electronic junk bound for landfill.

If you're a security guard then a 18650 torch doesn't have the same heft as a 5 (or 6) D-cell Maglite.

I was about the say that. And that's the point(lessness) of the Batteriser, if that Sony wireless isn't already designed to get 80-90% of the energy from that battery then I'm a monkey's uncle.
Once the true controlled runtime comparison reviews come in the numbers will be inescapable.

Slap a batteriser in, she'll be right!
