With the recent problems with Samsung Galaxy S7 batteries, phone users are more aware than ever of the potential for overheating electronics. Overheating, trickle charging and of course, overcharging are a major concern when juicing up electronic devices. Well, the new raboo SMART charger is looking to disrupt the battery charging industry with their smart charging feature.
This charger communicates with the device it’s charging via Bluetooth. It’s pretty simple to use. Start by downloading the accompanying raboo app from either the App Store or Google Play. Once you open the app it will automatically connect to the charger through Bluetooth. At this point you’ve established communication between your device and the charger so you’re ready to go. It charges your device to a pre-set limit – say 100% and once it reaches full charge it stops flowing power, preventing your phone from overheating. And once it reaches a re-charging pre-set limit, it will re-start charging your device again. With this set-up you can leave your phone unplugged overnight. Now this intelligent charger’s app gives you an insight into your battery habits and recommends settings to help get the most out of your charge. Through various analytics and other data harvesting you can get a clear view of how you should be charging your devices.
Another great feature of the raboo SMART charger is the size, at just 1.5 inches by 2.4 inches the SMART charger can fit in your pocket and go anywhere you need.
