It seems like batteries have been around forever, and as children we can remember needing a range of different types of batteries to power our electronic devices, but the technology powering these gadgets hasn’t advanced anywhere near as much as the products themselves. Tethercell is a new product designed by a company that is known for rocket engineering, and with their help are going to take battery control to another level.
With the help of a Tethercell battery adapter and the Tetherboard app, users will be able to silence gadgets remotely and know when the power is about to run out. You can set on and off schedules, use remote operating smartly like turning on a baby monitor without entering the room, and also receive push notifications when batteries will run low on different electronic devices.
When it comes to fire alarms it’s extremely important to know when the juice is running low, and this is why they make a sound when the batteries need replacing, but with the simple Tethercell battery adapter you can receive a notification on a smartphone explaining this instead. This means you get the message wherever you are; all you need is a gadget that is powered by AA-batteries, the Tethercell adapter, and of course an app.
What electronics would you like to use Tethercell with, and control them remotely? Share your thoughts in the comments after watching the video demo below, which explains the product in more detail. Tethercell showcased a prototype at CES 2013 this week.
