Batbot is a vehicle and leisure battery monitor that alerts you remotely on your smartphone when the battery is about to be discharged beyond use. Launched via Kickstarter pledges are available from just £55 and worldwide deliveries expected to take place during June 2020.
“Batbot is a device that every equestrian, marine enthusiast, motorhome or vehicle owner has missed… until now. This clever product monitors your vehicle’s battery and sends alerts to your mobile device or email when the battery requires charging. No-one wants to miss out on competing at an event, or end up stranded at a campsite, having to wait on break down recovery. Or worse still, spend hundreds of pounds on a replacement after their existing battery has run too low to be salvaged. Also, commercial batteries in particular are notoriously difficult to remove. They tend to be located in inaccessible parts of a vehicle, requiring a Phd in mechanical engineering, or help from a magician to access them! “
