The Batteroo’s reusability greatly enhances consumer convenience and lowers the impact on the environment
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — January 4, 2017 — Based on its recent analysis of the alkaline battery market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Batteroo, Inc. with the 2015 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for Price/Performance Value Leadership. Batteroo’s reusable energy-optimizing solution, Batteroo Boost, has the potential to be a game changer by accessing untapped energy in disposable batteries (AAA, AA, C, and D types) to extend their lives by a significant amount . In addition to this, it has also emerged as an environment-friendly solution by reducing the volume of toxic landfill caused by batteries.
“The Batteroo comprises a stainless steel sleeve that makes contact with the positive and negative ends of an alkaline battery to release unused energy at a highly efficient, regulated voltage,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Manager Vishal Sapru. “Batteroo’s impressive attributes make it applicable across a range of home and office battery-operated gadgets.”
A significant number of batteries are discarded with only 20 percent of their energy used. Batteroo technology employs innovative circuitry to tap the remaining 80 percent that would have otherwise been thrown away. The ultra-thin (less than one-tenth of a millimeter), reusable stainless steel sleeve slips over a battery and easily fits into a device’s battery compartment. This solution is designed to be used with most conventional batteries, ranging from AAA and AA to C and D cells.
Batteroo’s product can be placed over a battery at any stage of its life cycle. Even a perceived “dead” battery can be revived when the sleeve harnesses its unused energy. No similar product is available in the market, and its price of $2.50 per sleeve demonstrates true value for performance.
“Batteroo’s potentially disruptive technology shuns the conventional approach of altering chemical composition to extend battery lives; instead, it devises proprietary circuitry to tap unused energy,” noted Sapru. “The Batteroo’s reusability offers significant added value to consumers, as it eliminates the expense and effort in constantly replacing batteries.”
As the Batteroo is the first of its kind, it is vital for the company to generate awareness of its benefits and simplicity of use. The company has plans to establish a strong online and social media presence to engage with users and build brand recognition.
Batteroo has already distinguished itself with a unique product and plans to build on that foundation with excellent product performance. For its impressive product value and customer focus, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to present Batteroo with the 2015 Frost & Sullivan Award for Price/Performance Value Leadership.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that has developed a product to suit the market and client needs. The award lauds the price competitiveness, features, ease of use of the product, as well as the service effectiveness of the recipient company.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
