When will people stop resurrecting this thread?

it's like smoking : "I'll stop tomorrow".
Batterizer was entertaining, but we need a new scam to bash now.
"Scambashing" is a new sport. :scared:

I set a search query for batteroo on eBay. Got notified today: someone tries to sell it for 3 times the price for which you can get it from the original webpage :-DD

http://cgi.ebay.de/123269450089

The description was not clear, it says "Battery Type Included: AA + AAA", so I asked the seller. And he answered that you get only one package with 4 sleeves, but I can choose AA or AAA, and 4 free batteries included (which costs like $3). Maybe I should write him the link to this thread? Or someone else who wants to have some fun ask him why it is 3 times as expensive as from batteroo.com?

And also this:

So now we know where they got the cool name :)

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

If anyone still has a batteroo, I'd like to get my hands on one. I'm curious about alternate, useful, design using the same form factor.

Oh FFS, I still have that same Golf GPS and the Batteroos somewhere, so I could bust this, but I couldn't be bothered digging up this old turd.

You could buy one from their webpage, looks like they are still selling this crap:

https://www.batteroo.com/products/aaa-sleeve-15/

Sometimes it appears on eBay, too.

What other designs do you think about? There is no useful design for it. Just add the booster chip in the device which needs it instead of using a fragile battery sleeve, which just causes that it can't be used with every battery holder anymore.

I have an unopened 4x AAA box. You can have it.

It's only advantage is that is operates down to 0.5V or so while other converters will only go to about 0.8V
Their whole delusion was that there was useful energy left in the battery to go that low. Spoiler, there isn't.

And the "free energy" crowd make the same mistake. I can see 5V coming from a lemon! Look at the tagline below. Voltage does not flow nor does it go. Seeing a static voltage does not equate to the ability to pass current, therefore = lack of capacity as far as the battery or the lemon.
Voltage does not flow, nor does it go.

you can advertise this in the next oceans 11's movie when the radio detonator does not work because of dead batteries (you might need will smith to pull this level of advertising off though)

those batteries are gonna leak ultra fast, even if it works perfectly.

Other designs for the footprint, not the circuitry. Not my plan, but a fun example would be the snapper (night at the museum). A circuit that detects a nearby loud and short noise and toggles a mosfet that turns on and off the device the battery is installed in.
