Never Get The Size Wrong

What size are they….AA, C, D? Wicked minds! Me is innocently asking you the size of your Batteries. The ones that you use in your gadgets. So you don’t remember exactly, and what if you buy the wrong size? With the AtoD Rechargeable Battery, you’ll never get the size wrong. Why? Coz the one size fits all slots. How? It’s made from memory form, so it squishes to the required size in a squeeze. 1.5 Volts of Nickel Hydroxide power is what you get; recharge it and use it.

      You are bitter people.

      Take the idea and make it better if you’re so set on being insulting.

      I don’t recall any of you presenting anything remotely useful or being successful with all the smack you talk. No, I don’t recall a paycheck or respect for that. If you did, I don’t think you’d be such a petty douche and spend time being rude to others on a web page.

      You’d be out enjoying the earned talent you currently don’t have.

      Do something productive but don’t be shooting down other people for having the guts to even try the planning of an idea.

        "You'd be out enjoying the earned talent you currently don't have"

        You see that's kind of the point. Three designers all got together and somehow thought this would work and be a good idea, worthy enough of the ensuing render and hype or whatever but 20+ people, most of whom I doubt are designers or electrical engineers/technicians/whatever have called out the mistakes with this design. THREE PEOPLE got together and designed something that common sense (and a small amount of technical knowledge) shows wouldn't work.

        Do something productive but don't be shooting down other people for calling a design out on its mistakes, its woefully obvious mistakes.

        That aside, its a reasonably smart idea, in principle. Just a shame that reality works a little differently.

        You’ll be buying this then? …a good item to keep on hand in case you need an underpowered ‘C’ or ‘D’ battery, or just prefer your ‘AA’ batteries in a “fat suit”! Hey! How about foam socks so you can wear any size shoes?

    • Ris says:

      Interesting concept…but i do agree that even if the batteries fit coz of the memory form the power still remains the same…different battery sizes are there for a reason…i hope im correct on this!

      different battery-"sizes" not only have different capacities but also varying voltages and discharge properties (for example high performance batteries for flashes). basically, apart from the physical requirements of storing different amounts of energies, there are different form-types of batteries so you dont mix them up accidentially (at least not too bad, meaning if you chose the wrong battery it is probably underpowered for your purpose and will do no damage). the designers obviously didn't make the slightest effort of understanding what they tried to "improve". i can only hope it was a freshman's student assignment…

      I’m surprised nobody here has seen the inherent dangerousness of this product. You ever pull a freshly-charged battery out of its charger? It’s warm, isn’t it? Now imagine putting a thick foam blanket around the battery, then charge it. It would probably get very hot, possibly hot enough to melt the foam and quite likely start a fire if the internals explode. Not a good “concept” at all.

    • Sieb Dykstra says:

      this is a crap idea. if your using a D sized battery with a capacity of AA, then you will have no power what so ever,

    • How would you squeeze that in to an AAA size, wont that pop out the cover of the gadget?

    • Bob says:

      It's a great and interesting theory in my opinion, but as stated it just wouldn't work. The batteries wouldn't have enough power. LIke I said though, I like the theory of it.
