New eBatts Site Design!

clock June 21, 2013 23:26 by author Administrator

 

This week we released a new site design on eBatts. The goal was to make it easier for people to use the site and so we focused on making the major brands and product categories more visible. We rearranged some elements; most notably, we moved the main product categories from the left side up to the top. Now you can clearly navigate to laptop batteries, camera batteries, camcorder batteries, cell phone batteries and cordless phone batteries, or see all of the different battery types we offer.

Next up, we added the most popular brands to the left side. This way you can easily find the battery for that Sony camera, laptop or phone from one convenient location. We also rearranged the center area of the website so users can visually identify the product they are looking for and click from there. Lastly, we relocated all of our social media links, including our Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and blog to the footer.

We hope you like the new layout of the site and we would love to hear your feedback!

A Dead Battery in an Electric Car

clock June 9, 2011 19:34 by author Ty

So you got yourself a new electric car that runs 100% off of the power grid? It’s green, great for the environment, comes with tax benefits, there’s no gasoline or diesel bill at every fill up, and it’s the new trend everyone wants to be a part of by purchasing an electric vehicle. But what happens when you run out of juice in your electric vehicle?

You’re stranded! You ran out of battery power in your electric vehicle. An easy solution would be to call AAA and have a tow truck fix us up. Well, your electric car doesn’t take gasoline or diesel, so it will most likely end up being an expensive tow if you are not within your 10 mile free tow limit.

However, in Japan there is an ‘EV Rescue Vehicle’ operated by Nissan Motor Co and is equipped with a 29kW diesel generator that can partially charge a Nissan Leaf in 20 minutes to increase the range by 24 miles. There is nothing available in the United States that can provide services like the ‘EV Rescue Vehicle’ in Japan. General Motors and Toyota are currently talking to AAA about offering an emergency charging roadside assistance to eliminate range anxiety and allow EV car owners to drive further off of one full charge.

 

Your electric car will most likely need to be towed back home or to the nearest charging station if you run out of battery power.  Plan your trips wisely and be conservative on your range to ensure your ride back home is not on a tow truck. Electric cars may be great for the environment, but can be a real hassle for new EV car owners not familiar with EV range capabilities.

Duracell Portable Power Products offer Power Inverters for Cars.



Portable Power for Summer Road Trips, Camping and Emergencies

clock May 16, 2011 12:11 by author Ty

EBatts.com offers a full line of portable powerpacks ranging from 300 watts to 1800 watts of power and these products are available now on their Web site, http://www.ebatts.com/. EBatts.com is an online retailer for replacement batteries and chargers for laptops, cell phones, camcorders, digital cameras, and other consumer electronic equipment.

New backup battery powerpack video tutorials and reviews are available on eBatts.com for their top selling portable power products. These rechargeable powerpacks are stand-alone battery backup power units that can be used without a wall power source, whether they are being used during an emergency or simply when an AC power supply is unavailable. These portable powerpacks are perfect for road trips, camping and emergency power. The powerpack video tutorials and reviews feature all four products, which include the Powerpack 300, Powerpack 450, Powerpack 600, and PowerSource 1800.

The Powerpack 300, the smallest of the units, can deliver 240 watts of continuous power, up to 300 watts maximum. This unit includes two 120V AC outlets, one 12V DC outlet, car jumper cables with 120 cold cranking amps, an air compressor for inflating tires, and a removable LED flashlight. This is a compact unit that can be stored in the car for emergency use or packed specifically for road trips and travel.

The Powerpack 450 is capable of providing 340 watts of continuous power, up to a maximum of 450 watts. Like its smaller counterpart, the Powerpack 450 comes with two 120V AC outlets and one 12V DC outlet. The car jumper cables are detachable and provide 170 cold cranking amps, and the unit includes a built in air compressor for inflating tires. The Powerpack 450 also has a built-in 5 watt incandescent light on one of its sides, which can stay lit for 12 hours when the battery is fully charged. A Voice Guidance feature is included as well, providing users with on-demand voice instructions and system statuses. The Powerpack 450 was recently featured in a Wall Street Journal article stating that the Powerpack 450, “should be standard-issue for every car owner.”

The Powerpack 600 can deliver twice as much power as the Powerpack 300, providing 480 watts of continuous power, up to a maximum of 600 watts. This unit has three AC outlets, along with a single 12V DC outlet. The car jumper cables provide 250 cold cranking amps and come in their own accessory bag. The built-in 5 watt incandescent light on the front can stay lit for up to 50 hours with a fully charged battery. A front display panel shows the current output power (in watts) and the remaining battery life of the unit. The Powerpack 600 also features an AM/FM radio with digital alarm clock, which has controls for power, volume, hours/minutes, and an external antenna.

The largest of the models, the PowerSource 1800, delivers 1440 watts of continuous power, up to a maximum of 1800 watts. This rugged model is designed as a better alternative to gas-powered generators and includes five AC outlets to plug in numerous electronic devices simultaneously. The display panel is on the top of the PowerSource 1800 and includes a button to view the output power (in watts) and the remaining battery life. Wheels are provided on the rear end for easy portability.

EBatts Crew at CES Finds BlackBerry PlayBook and Toshiba's Unnamed Tablet

clock January 7, 2011 00:17 by author Jeremy

Straight from CES, our crew from EBatts managed to snag a few shots of the BlackBerry PlayBook and Toshiba's Tegra 2 powered tablet.

Ah, the BlackBerry Playbook. The top part has physical buttons for power, locking, volume, play and pause. The bottom part is the plug-area: there are slots for mini-HDMI, micro-USB, and the charger. There's a front-facing 3 megapixel camera, too. The downside? Certain parts, such as the email and calendar, are tethered to the consumer's BlackBerry phone; the PlayBook doesn't have an email or calendar to use by itself.

Here we see the PlayBook connected to a fairly large tv above it. You know, in case the normal screen just wasn't cutting it for you. The bigger, the better, right? At least we know the mini-HDMI slot will come in handy.

As of now, there's no release date on the PlayBook.

The EBatts crew also stumbled upon the often-whispered-about Tegra 2 powered Toshiba Tablet, which is still unnamed as of now. This tablet was confirmed to be running the latest version of Android in the future (aka Honeycomb), but for CES' sake, Toshiba has powered the device up with Android 2.2. Details about the inside of this tablet are still largely unknown, but we did find out that the rubberized back cover is replaceable. This brings a number of options for customization, such as a different color, and also battery replacement. However, we'll wait to wait for futher details to really take a look at how Toshiba's unnamed wonder-child will fare against competitors.
