Continuance Rechargeable USB Batteries

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2011

Continuance is a rechargable battery concept by Haimo Bao, Hailong Piao, Yuancheng Liu & Xiameng Hu. It redesigns the traditional AA battery by putting a USB port on it. This way, the battery can be charged via a USB connection or the device can be used to charge mobile and other devices via USB.

It doesn’t seem very practical. You would lose some of the battery capacity just by putting the USB port in the battery. But it is still neat. Maybe in the future this could work very well.

Spotlight 12V Rechargeable LED Flashlight Review

Posted in Review by Darrin Olson on March 28th, 2009

Spotlight 12V rechargeable LED flashlightThe tough guys over at Spotlight were nice enough to send us a few samples of their their small rechargeable 12V flashlight to try out for ourselves we have to admit that we were impressed. Now, the Spotlight has but only a couple features and is no new radical cutting-edge technology but we would consider it a gadget nonetheless. Also, its refreshing to see a very simple and useful gadget come across the desk from time to time.

The Spotlight is just like it sounds; it’s a small flashlight measuring a mere 2 inches and weighing in at a svelte 1.8 ounces. What makes this little guy so handy is it’s small size which is by no coincidence the same size as many automotive outlets. The flashlight alone fit in 4 of the 6 different car outlets we tried and emits a glowing red light to let you know it’s charging. For those outlets that don’t quite fit, Spotlight provides a small length adapter and a Super Socket adapter (separately) to allow it to fit just about any vehicle.

Make your own solar rechargeable batteriesWant some batteries that you can put out in the sun and power up? Knut Karlsen constructed his very own solar rechargeable batteries that soak up the sun’s rays and convert them into power. If you want to try your hand at making some, he has documented the DIY project to create the prototype SunCat battery. If you can get your hands on some flexible solar cells.

Knut has some connections at the Institute for Energy Technology, so it wasn’t a problem for him. Basically Knut attached the solar cells to old rechargeable NiMH batteries and used contacts from an old camera to connect the negative pole to the photo voltaic cells. And just like that you have batteries that can sit out in the sun and store up energy.

There are actually a few benefits to using fake candles. They are safer, you won’t get that nasty smell when you blow them out, and you can still set a nice romantic mood while at the same time impressing her with tech. And who knows where that will lead. On a full charge the fake candles can last for about 12 hours. You can get a set of 4 with charger for $89.95.
