Real-time battery detection

Battery Spotter

Batteries are a common source of energy used in an increasing amount of everyday household items. However, when batteries are no longer useful or no longer hold a charge, they become a hazardous waste. When thrown in the trash, they either end up in landfills where they harm the environment and pose a risk to human health or can be punctured and self-combust if discarded with recycling waste.ย
