Sanyo Eneloop battery aimed at musicians
Sanyo is catering to musicians with its latest application of its Eneloop batteries, the Eneloop music booster. The device will let musicians power their amps, equalizers and other related equipment that requires an AC adapter or 9 Volt DC battery. The Eneloop music booster has an integrated lithium-ion battery that can power devices when there is no available electrical outlet.
The device also provides consistent voltage that won't dip when hard bass hits during a performance. There are two 9V power ports, an LED power indicator and a power button. The unit is waterproof, and has a maximum output of 2,000mA. It will require 3.5 hours to charge fully.
Priced at the equivalent of $109, the Eneloop music booster will begin shipping in Japan on March 4th. A North American release date has not been revealed. [via Impress]
