Never lose charge again. Our 2000 mAh battery lasts all-day long. That's more recognizing more objects more text more scenes more faces more.
Low Energy Use
Do more with less. blindsight offloads the most intensive processes from the device so you don't burn through your battery.
Never go a day without a full charge again. When you're done with your day, just pop blindsight on the charger, and you'll wake up to a fully-charged battery.
