Nanotech Brings Battery Life Extender for Mobiles

CowboyNeal posted more than 9 years ago | from the extended-play dept.

Handhelds 489

An anonymous user writes "Using latest nanotechnology research, BatMax developed the first cellphone battery life booster that extends the mobile phone battery life and reduces charging time. BatMax is based on the IonXR, a new exclusively developed nanoceramic material, resulting from years of laboratory research. BatMax foil slows down the loss of capacity of Ni-CD, Ni-MH, Li-Ion and Li-Polymer batteries and thus provides improved battery performance. BatMax is a small (1.14 x 1.92 in) rectangular sticker which is installed on the mobile phone battery. Users just need to attach BatMax to the battery or the cellphone. They claim users will notice a battery life improvement after 5 to 10 charging cycles."

Simple -
BatMax contains permeable material, which is able to directly affect the molecule level inside the battery and BatMax reintegrates the uncharged particles into the electrical circuit.

BatMax reduces electrical loss by optimizing the ions transfers between the battery cells and maintaining a stable voltage.

It probably also proactively optimizes business flow to maximize your return on investment using the newest state-of-the-art XML over HTTP via TCP/IP technology.

Increased battery life for laptops too (0, Redundant)

TheWingThing (686802) | more than 9 years ago | (#11501768)

The website says it increases the life of laptop batteries too. From http://www.batmax.com/products-laptop.php Extends the battery life from 30% up to 2X Offers more time for working, playing DVD's, CD's and gaming. Provides longer idle time. Accelerates the charging time up to 40%. Rejuvenates the current batteries / Restores the original performances. Prolongs the total battery life span with up to 30% longer lifetime (total charging cycles). Eliminates the battery "memory" effect. Protects the battery by regulating and filtering the incoming current. Saves money by delaying the need for purchasing new batteries. But I cannot find an order page with the Batmax for laptops

Colonel Panic (15235) | more than 9 years ago | (#11501794)

From the website.

How it works:

The nanoceramic material is extracted from a natural stone and depending on the version, layered between 2 protective silicon foils or on 1 or 2 sides of a conductive sheet.
An adhesive and protective film are added to the foil (depending on the version) to attach BatMax to the battery.

The foil and the material are designed to:

Absorb the electromagnetic waves generated from the battery.
Generate a flow of negative ions.
Interact with the battery's internal electrolyte and ions.

Legitimate companies would never spend research dollars commercializing a product whose effects are so small that they show up "after 5 to 10 charging cycles." At any rate, the term "nanoceramic" should tip off the savy reader. How would a piece of any material improve the internal operation of a battery?

Further reading of the BatMax website reveals that this magical technology works by releasing electrons with a wavelength of 5 to 10 microns. Which is total bullshit. Five to 10 microns is the length of fifty-thousand atoms. You will NEVER get an electron with wavelength that big emitted from anything, ever. At any rate, no electron could cross the electrically INSULATING battery case. Otherwise, you've got more problems than just a useless sticker on your battery. What we have here is just that, a useless sticker.

100% Snake Oil (5, Insightful)

timholman (71886) | more than 9 years ago | (#11501846)

BatMax is designed to separate gullible people from their money, plain and simple. Consider the so-called "technical description" at http://www.batmax.com/technology-features.php:

"(1) The nanoceramic material is extracted from a natural stone and depending on the version, layered between 2 protective silicon foils or on 1 or 2 sides of a conductive sheet.

The magical stuff it's made of is "extracted" from "natural stone". Hey, if it's natural, it must be good, right? These guys are selling pieces of rock with adhesive.

The wavelength of the electron released from BatMax is around 3-40 microns, and is considered to be within almost the same range with the oscillation frequency of molecules inside the battery. These molecules are able to raise their oscillation energy and electricity generation by receiving electron wavelength from BatMax.

This is absolutely meaningless technobabble. "Receiving electron wavelength"? A previous poster is right, these guys have been watching too much Star Trek.

BatMax unblocks and regulates the flow of ions by generating an electro-magnetic cavity and oscillation frequency with negative ions emission. The ionization generated by BatMax has been mesured as a level reaching 30 times the value (7 - 8.000 Ions/cm3) of the ambiant air ionization (2 - 300 Ions/cm3). By the ions production, BatMax improves the electrodes oxidization.

So somehow, using the same principle as an air purifier, the BatMax magically provides "negative ions" (without any electrical contact to the battery, of course) and makes any battery work better. 100% complete hogwash.

I salute the BatMax promoters for their audacity at selling rocks as high tech accessories, and I can only pity those who shell out hard-earned money for them.

  • Absorb the electromagnetic waves generated from the battery.
  • Generate a flow of negative ions.
  • Interact with the battery's internal electrolyte and ions.
OK, so it's outside the battery, insulated by the plastic case of the battery, yet it can still interact with the internal electrolyte and ions? Plus it generates a flow of negative ions... all by itslef?

"Someone asked me the other day why there's no comments anymore here, but I'll let the transressors explain it. Basically trying to keep the comments clear of spam and idiots was taking far too much time for a site that's supposed to be my personal waste of time. It's too bad some people can't discern between one's career and one's personal web presence. They could have at least told me where they work so I could come down there and "terrorize" it, whatever the hell that means besides being an annoying asshole. I hope at least one of them had a nice time jerking themselves off afterwards.".

It's too early in the morning. Why on earth would anyone believe this? Heck the cell phone attenna extenders were more believable. To spice it up they could have just sold Nokia faceplates which extended battery life. At least then there would have been another "reason" to purchase one. Maybe CowboyNeal is posting in his sleep?

Slashdotted: Using some neat tricks with Ghost / Fdisk can double your hard disk space.

Slashdotted: Shutting down your mail server for 3 days can stop most spam.

Slashdotted: LCD screens have a latency measured in 100's of milliseconds.

Slashdotted: Putting a sticker on the back of your cell-phone that uses "nano-tech" can extract more life from the batteries.
