Glove Box Battery Jumper

car battery charger

This is the device that charges a car’s battery from the comfort and safety of the driver’s seat. Small enough to store inside a glove box, the 30-volt battery plugs into a car’s 12-volt lighter outlet. The device jump-starts a car’s battery in as little as 10 minutes, providing a two-amp “trickle” charge, even in temperatures as low as -10º F. A quick beep indicates when charging is complete. Reversing a switch allows the device to recharge in 30 minutes from a running car. It comes fully charged, providing up to five years of power. Includes a set of mini-jumper cables for motorcycles.

Battery Direct for Laptops, Camcords and Digital Cameras

batteryfuel  Battery Direct for Laptops, Camcords and Digital Cameras

How can I maximize the performance of my laptop battery?

There are several steps you can take to help you get maximum performance from your laptop battery:

Prevent the Memory Effect – Keep the laptop battery healthy by fully charging and then fully discharging it at least once every two to three weeks. Exceptions to the rule are Li-Ion batteries which do not suffer from the memory effect.

Keep the laptop Batteries Clean – It’s a good idea to clean dirty battery contacts with a cotton swab and alcohol. This helps maintain a good connection between the battery and the portable device.

Exercise the Battery – Do not leave the battery dormant for long periods of time. We recommend using the battery at least once every two to three weeks. If a laptop battery has not been used for a long period of time, perform the new battery break in procedure described above.

Electric car batteries with 500-mile range on the way

battery 500 miles

The project is progressing with its goal of boosting the range of rechargeable batteries for all-electric cars to 500 miles.

The Battery 500 Project recently held its kickoff meeting at IBM’s Almaden Laboratory in San Jose, Calif., where leading scientists, engineers and other experts brainstormed about how to perfect the power source for all-electric automobiles. (See the video.)

As a part of IBM’s 2-year-old Big Green Innovations program, the Battery 500 Project aims to boost the range of rechargeable batteries for all-electric cars from less than 100 miles today to as far as 500 miles. The consortium’s efforts are being led by the Almaden Lab in collaboration with several U.S. universities and the Department of Energy’s national labs.

“Batteries technology has improved, but is still far inferior to gasoline in terms of how much energy they hold,” said Spike Narayan, a key IBM researcher. “The energy density—which is the amount of energy a lithium-ion battery stores per unit weight—is really not enough to produce a family-sized sedan with a 300- to 500-mile range.”

Monstrous iPhone Battery with up to 500 hours standby

monstrous iphone battery

Sure, the iPhone is great. There’s an app for everything and for everything, there’s an app. But when you’re working 10 hour days and your iPhone tuckers out before your commute home, you have a problem. When you’re stuck in the car for a long drive with people you don’t wanna talk to and your iPhone dies mid-trip, you have a problem. When your entire life is in your cell phone and it dies and there isn’t a plug in sight, you have a MAJOR PROBLEM. Of course, if you traveled back in time and tried to explain this to the 1990 incarnation of yourself, you’d probably get laughed at most righteously. A heart attack, over a dead cellular phone? Really? Gnarly, dude.

But we have the solution. It’s bigger, it’s badder, and it’ll make sure your iPhone lasts all day long. And night. And possibly into the next day. The Monstrous iPhone Battery is a lithium powered rechargeable battery extender with a whopping 3000mAh capacity. For the layman, that means 8.5 hours of talk time or 8.5 hours of online time or about 40 hours (!!) of audio playback. No more shutting down applications, disabling features so you can be sure to eke by with that last ounce of battery life. Salvation is here, and it is awesome.
