Solar Strap for Digital Cameras

clock June 30, 2010 19:52 by author Susan

Digital Cameras are very good at draining batteries very quickly. Most photographers carry multiple spare batteries on hand while doing a photo shoot. Weng Jie at Yanko Designs might have a solution with his new digital camera solar strap that is capable of recharging batteries for the digital camera. Most digital cameras are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and need to be recharged after every use.


A storage battery is built into each end of the strap and recharges batteries. The solar strap does not charge batteries while inside the camera and would require modification of the digital camera to accept this type of charging. Certain cameras also carry custom sized batteries and would need adapters for the strap. We could definitely see AA batteries charging with the solar strap, as some digital cameras come standard using AA Li-ion or AA Ni-MH batteries.

Battery Powered Clock Designs

clock June 29, 2010 19:16 by author Ty

If you're looking for a new clock, there are some interesting clock designs out there that will most likely strike up as a conversation piece. The first one up is a clock that uses it's batteries as the small hourly hand and big minute hand. It's not your typical clock that's digital with the batteries inside. These batteries will be shown on the front of the clock and not hidden in the back.

 

Another interesting design is a clock that uses a spiral hand to mark the hours across popular world locations.

 


We haven't seen these clocks for sale anywhere, but they would make a great gift for someone to stand out among the rest.

EBatts.com Offers Power Inverters, Battery Chargers, Jump Starters and Powerpacks for Portable Power

clock June 22, 2010 12:02 by author Ty

EBatts.com has launched a new line of portable power products including power inverters, vehicle battery chargers, vehicle jump starters and backup battery power units. The new portable power products are for people who enjoy camping, traveling and are always on the go. These portable power products allow consumers to have power readily available to charge and power laptops, cell phones, digital cameras, small TVs, lighting and emergency equipment.

Power inverters provide DC to AC power ranging from 100 watts to 1500 watts of power. The power inverters provide compact and reliable power to keep small mobile devices charged and large household AC powered items running. Travelers can now stay plugged in and get more work done on the road with these powerful power inverters. Small mobile power inverters ranging from 100 watts to 200 watts can be used to power laptops, netbooks, work lights, game consoles, cell phones and other small devices. Larger power inverters ranging from 300 watts to 3000 watts can power larger devices including TVs, blenders, blow dryers, handheld tools, small refrigerators, microwaves and coffee makers. The broad range of power inverters allows people to have the comfort of using household items while they are away from home. Power inverters can be used in any vehicle, boat or RV to provide DC to AC power directly from the vehicle battery or cigarette lighter outlet.

The new line of car battery chargers will maintain and charge a battery in large and small vehicles. The advantage of battery chargers and battery maintainers is that they will provide a strong charge to jump start dead vehicle batteries or maintain an infrequently used battery to keep it charged and ready for use. The rapid three-stage charging technology that is present in the 6, 12, and 25 amp battery chargers will recharge a dead battery quickly and will not overcharge the system. The 2 amp battery maintainer is ideal for maintaining and extending battery life for a stored vehicle, ATV, snowmobile, motorcycle, or boat. Instant jump start systems and emergency car starters will jump start a vehicle’s dead battery with 400 cold-cranking amps. All battery chargers are convenient to carry, charge and store and come ready for use when a battery needs to be charged.

Car jump starters always come in handy when there is a dead battery in any vehicle. The instant jump start system comes with a set of jumper cables offering a powerful 400 amps of starting capacity, a flashlight and one DC 12-volt power outlet to charge small devices. A smaller emergency car starter with flashlight offers battery charging and jump starting through the DC 12-volt cigarette power outlet without needing to open the vehicle’s hood. Jump starters are great for long trips and outdoor activities and help guard against being stranded with a dead vehicle battery.

Battery backup power units provide a stand-alone power source to be used during emergency power outages, camping, and in remote locations off the power grid. Backup battery power solutions are available in 300, 450 and 600 watt models. The portable Powerpacks include AC and DC power ports, flashlights and AM/FM radios. The Powerpack 300 and 450 have a built in air compressor to inflate flat tires and will jump start vehicles with a dead battery. The Powerpack 600 is the top selling model with a built in 600 watt inverter, three 120-volt AC outlets, one DC 12-volt cigarette outlet, and can jumpstart a vehicle’s dead battery. Mobile consumers will never get stuck without power again with a backup battery Powerpack.

Product support is available to all eBatts.com customers who have questions on portable battery power products. Customers in need of finding the right replacement laptop battery, digital camera battery, cell phone battery, camcorder battery or any other electronic device is also available.
