too hot to handle, literally
Ever wonder why your phone dies quicker just a few months after you buy it?
The more you charge your phone, the weaker its battery becomes.
You might’ve felt your phone getting hot while charging at some point. Charging your phone overnight or using fast chargers causes your battery to reach temperatures upwards of 100 degrees Fahrenheit, which destroys your battery over time.
Designed to fit in with your normal overnight charging habits, the Canal Battery Guard uses an experimentally proven charging algorithm that gives your battery rest periods to minimize overheating - the crucial factor in battery degradation.
The battery guard fits between your standard charging brick and USB charging cable, and communicates with an app on your phone. Simply connect via bluetooth and set the time you’ll be waking up in the morning, and the Battery Guard will do the rest.
Testing has shown the Battery Guard can cut battery decay by up to 50%, effectively doubling the lifespan of your phone.
