Sanyo Eneloop’s new stick booster is a new take on the standard ideas of what a battery charger is, letting the lowly AA rechargeable battery boost any mobile device with a dying battery.
In the world of batteries, there is nothing more ubiquitous than the AA battery. Although I have no quantitative data to back it up, the vast majority of battery powered devices in the world today take AA batteries. Even many C and D batteries are nothing more than AA batteries that have been “repackaged” into one larger cell. While Lithium Ion battery packs are certainly more sophisticated and offer a longer lasting charge, there is nothing more straightforward than AA rechargeable batteries.
Sanyo Eneloop knows this well, since they are the clear product leaders in the rechargeable batteries market.
Their newest offering, the Stick Booster, allows gadget users to wield the power of the AA rechargeable battery in order to give a quick, albeit temporary boost to the gadget of their choice.
The Stick Booster is a simply-designed tube that hold two AA batteries, and Sanyo Eneloop is kind enough to package it with a pair of official AA Sanyo Eneloop batteries batteries. The brilliance of the Sanyo Eneloop Stick Booster is that it is small enough to bring with you on any outing where the charge on your mobile phone or digital camera might be in jeopardy of failing you at an inopportune time. The Stick Booster works with both alkaline AA batteries as well as AA rechargeable batteries, but it makes the most sense to use rechargeables, since the whole idea behind the Stick Booster is availability; if you use disposable batteries, you’ll be more likely to use it once and forget to replace the dead alkalines with a fresh set.
While you can imagine that the Stick Booster is well-suited for emergency situations or outdoor adventures, some of the most avid users of this new toy from Sanyo Eneloop are actually gamers and, more particularly, mobile gamers. The Stick Booster allows mobile gamers to continue on with their game in spite of a low battery. And it’s clear that mobile gaming was a big part of the R&D of the Stick Booster: Sanyo Eneloop made sure that the Stick Booster was also officially supported by Nintendo’s DS Lite, DSi, and DSi LL portable consoles.
If you’re excited about the prospect of having portable, Sanyo Eneloop-flavoured battery juice at your beck and call, then you’ll be happy to know that the Stick Booster will begin to ship from October 21st in Japan to worldwide outlets. Now you can rest assured that mobile phone calls, camera sessions, and game will survive, thanks once again to AA rechargeable batteries.
