The motion-powered batteries generates upto 180mW.
Imagine never having to replace batteries on your remote controls, flashlights and maybe even your video game controllers? A Japanese electronics manufacturer Brother is looking to achieve just that with its prototype AA and AAA batteries that recharges itself on motion.
The batteries comprise of a generator which produces power from vibrations/movements. The system can generate upto 180mW of power and is designed, for now hopefully, for low power devices like remote controls and LED flashlights.
“The new generator will semipermanently eliminate the need to replace batteries and contribute to reducing the amount of wastes,” Brother industries said.
While it may make us do embarrassing motions to get a quick recharge, but if it saves us a few Dirhams, we are all for it.
