GazerGlass Adds 1500mAh to Google Glass’s Puny Battery

Screen Shot 2013-12-10 at 2.03.30 PM

One thing I love about my Google Glass is that it takes better hands-free video than anything else I’ve seen. One thing I dislike is that in under 40 minutes of shooting video, without some kind of external battery pack, Glass’s battery will die. For $50, GazerGlass adds a 1500 mAh battery to the skinnier Glass arm. Not too shabby!

They say:

GAZERglass will extend the lifetime of your Google Glass battery dramatically! Forget about charging your Glass during the day!
Our idea is to enhance Google Glass battery life with a single push of a button. GAZERglass is a battery pack that extends your Google Glass power almost three times more than its original capacity.
GAZERglass is a concept project of an IT company Worldintercom, Inc. based in New York, U.S. in cooperation with design company SMIRNOVDESIGN, LLC. based in Moscow, Russia.

    Wow, it weighs twice as much as the entire Google Glass! I know it needs to be that heavy to have a massive battery, but I can’t help but wonder how it would feel having almost an iPhone 5 pushing down on your left ear all the time.

    • Yeah, it doesn’t seem like it would be very comfortable for long, does it? =P

        Well, I had to try it after saying it… hanging an iPhone 5 from my ear.

        Got out a few rubber bands, paper, and tape; wrapped my phone up; secured the mess to my Glass; and walked around for a bit (Don’t try this at home, folks!).

        Verdict: it wasn’t quite as bad as I thought it’d be, but it definitely felt out of balance. Of course, the center of gravity of the phone was a lot lower than that of GAZERglass, and the whole contraption was certainly more than 100 grams…

        Sorry, no photos 😛

      It isn’t so heavy how you can thought :) and we have done a lot of work with balancing device. By the way, we are planning to develop 2 other batteries with different weight and capacity in mid 2014.
