Black+Decker announced the release of its SMARTECH batteries with Bluetooth technology. That’s right, you can now “talk” and use power tool batteries more efficiently and connect to the new Black+Decker Mobile App. The free Black+Decker Mobile App has three components: My Products, Messages, and Projects. Combined with the new SMARTECH™ Battery USB charging feature, the app and batteries connect tools with technology to make home improvements and repairs easier.
In the My Products section of the app, users can not only view a list of their connected batteries, but they can also select and interact directly with an individual battery when in range. From there, users can access four key functions: enable or disable the battery, view the percent of the battery’s remaining charge, turn on the locate feature to find a missing battery, or activate the battery’s integrated USB port. So it’s not just a power tool battery. You can use it to charge and power external devices, such as tablets and phones.
The My Products section of the app allows the user to interact with each individual battery. All connected SMARTECH™ batteries can be monitored via the Messages section where users can view all battery notifications. Combined, the features in My Products and Messages sections simplify battery use, making SMARTECH™ batteries easy to find and allowing users to quickly determine when they require charging. In addition, knowing that a battery can’t be used when it is disabled provides added peace of mind as to unauthorized use.
