Posted in Nyko by Conner Flynn on June 6th, 2011

Nyko has unveiled some new gaming gear. Zoom for Kinect is a pair of clip-on glasses that lets you get 40 percent closer to the sensor bar with no loss of function. Then there’s Nyko’s Play Clock, a charging dock for Nintendo’s 3DS that also functions as an alarm clock.

Nyko also introduced a trio of new extended battery packs for the 3DS. There’s the Shock n’ Rock that brings three times the juice, “added vibration feedback,” and four speakers. The Power Grip is an ergonomic external battery that also triples the 3DS’ battery life. The Game Boost battery snaps on for an extra hour or two of life. Prices and availability remain unknown for now.

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Reuben Drake on May 9th, 2011

The Nintendo 3DS has a very limited battery life, but with Hyperkin’s new 3DS Powerplus, you can extend that life. The 2.2-ounce accessory slips on to the back of your console, allowing access to the cartridge port, SD card and game controls, while adding an extra 1800mAh to the device’s standard 1300mAh battery. It will be available this summer.

The Powerplus also has an enhanced grip and an LED indicator that can tell you how much battery life you have left. The $19.99 device will more than double your 3DS’ battery life, according to the company.

Sony says NGP may run longer on battery, cost more than 3DS

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on January 27th, 2011

Sony’s SCEA president Jack Tretton hinted in an interview that the NGP might ease some of the worries on battery life, but not on price. He said that the company would “certainly look to improve” the PSP’s battery life even with the five-inch screen and quad-core hardware. Engadget thinks that means more than the 4.5 to seven hours of typical use.

Regarding price, he hinted that the device might be a bit expensive. We are talking more powerful hardware and hopefully good content. He said, “I think if the quality’s there, then the people will find a way to buy it, within reason,”.

RIM says PlayBook battery will last ‘all day’

Posted in Playbook by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2011

During a business presentation in Boston on Thursday RIM wanted to reassure consumers about the battery life of the BlackBerry PlayBook, hoping to ease worries about longevity. Senior product lead Ryan Bidan said that the audience didn’t have to worry about how long the battery would last. The goal is still officially to get eight hours, or about a “full day” of use.

The battery is 5,300mAH with a capacity of about a third larger than that of the battery on the Galaxy Tab. To reach that capacity, RIM has sealed in the pack to get as much internal space as possible. No removable battery here. Does this statement alleviate your concerns about the Playbook’s battery life?

RIM says the PlayBook is fine, no battery issues

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2010

The BlackBerry PlayBook has us all drooling ever since we first heard of it, but we had been hearing concerns about its battery, and maybe that there would even be a product delay. Well RIM wants to ease your mind with a healthy dose of damage control.

According to a statement made to Erictric, there’s nothing to the PlayBook’s battery issues and initial product test findings were based on pre-beta units. RIM says that the PlayBook is still good to launch by the end of March. This is great news, since this tablet is very promising and we are all looking forward to it.

RIM faces PlayBook battery issues

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2010

Looks like there is a problem with the battery life of Research In Motion’s tablet PC, the PlayBook. After making a splash with it’s introduction, the device has somewhat yielded to the competition. One issue is that the device has trouble keeping up with the 10-hour battery life of the iPad or even with the 6-hour battery life of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.

Word is that some re-engineering can be expected to get the device in a state where it is ready for release. I hope they work the issues out. It would be a shame if this one was gimped by battery life of all things.

Boost Case for iPhone 4

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on December 6th, 2010

No matter how good the battery is on a device, we need more juice. The iPhone 4, like everything else, always seems to run down at the worst times. And the iPhone 4 also needs a case, so you might as well take care of both problems with one device.

The Boost Case will fit the bill since it has a battery inside. It has a black exterior with blue LEDs to show how much battery life is left in the device. The battery inside has 1700mAh of power and the case is just 0.69″ thick. The case can be charged alone or you can charge the case battery and the iPhone 4 battery at the same time, which is nice.

Posted in Sanyo by Conner Flynn on October 25th, 2010

On November 14th, Sanyo is celebrating the 5th anniversary of Eneloop batteries by rolling out limited edition 8-color glitter AA and AAA Eneloop rechargeable battery packs in Japan. There will only be 200,000 limited edition packs available so you better hurry.

The 8 colors are purple, pink, orange, yellow, light green, light blue, silver and black. You could color coordinate those that have been charged and those that need to be charged. That’s pretty handy. It’s tough when they all look the same.

BlackBerry PlayBook should have 64GB model, large battery

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on October 18th, 2010

RIM’s Co-Chief Executive Officer Jim Balsillie has revealed a few more details about the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. According to CrackBerry, the device will have a 5,300mAh, non-removable battery, which will help it deliver more life than competing products. The similarly-sized Galaxy Tab packs only a 4,000mAh battery and a claimed seven-plus hour battery life when watching movies.

The PlayBook should last longer, obviously and maybe it will even match or surpass Apple’s 10-hour rating for its larger iPad. RIM’s smartphones are already very efficient and known for their long operation on a single charge. We hope some of this efficiency rubs off on the PlayBook as well.

Microsoft announces InstaLoad battery technology

Posted in Batteries by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2010

Microsoft’s new InstaLoad technology sounds amazing. It promises to redefine the way you insert batteries into your devices, letting you forget about positive or negative polarity. That’s possible thanks to a patented battery contact design, which Microsoft says “simply works,” and is compatible with a whole range of battery sizes, both standard and rechargeable.

Microsoft is already licensing the technology to third party device suppliers, and is even offering a royalty-free license for suppliers and manufacturers of accessibility products. This could change the entire battery game.
