BlueStar Brings 'Genius Batteries' To Market

New Batteries from GTS are Smart, like the Devices they Power

BlueStar, a leading global distributor of ADC, Mobility, Point-of-Sale, RFID, Digital Signage, and Security technology solutions, has joined with Global Technology Systems to bring a revolutionary line of batteries to its customers.  Dubbed "Genius Batteries" by GTS, each unit features an advanced memory chip that continuously calculates the battery's True-State-of-Health, or SoH, providing an up-to-the-minute readout of its condition.   As the battery is used and its health declines, an LED indicator turns yellow, informing the user that they should order a replacement. When the LED turns red, the user knows the battery is no longer reliable and should be replaced. Genius Batteries put critical information where it belongs- in the hands of the users-so they know exactly when to replace the battery: not too soon, and not too late.

The LED indicators are accurate and easy to read, and GTS Genius Technology monitors key internal battery characteristics like usage patterns, charging history, and environmental factors. Users can compare current performance to ideal levels, so they can diagnose device issues, reduce maintenance costs, and manage inventory and assets with more control.

With tens of thousands of Genius Batteries in use around the world, GTS has changed the way that businesses think about battery power, and BlueStar took notice.  "This is something that cuts across all the industries we serve," says Chad Ward, Business Account Manager for BlueStar.  "So many times our customers find end-users with an uncontrolled mixture of good and bad batteries, which leads to confusion, work stoppages, device maintenance problems and unnecessary expenditures; but now, GTS is giving users real-time insight into the health of their batteries."  

"GTS has successfully delivered a product that captures True-State-of-Health through ongoing internal electro-chemical reactions, the influences of external conditions, and the unique usage patterns of each battery pack. Genius Batteries are the only product in the market that gives users this level of instant feedback.  Since its release in 2013, we are thrilled to be powering tens of thousands of mobile IT devices with our advanced, yet simple tool," said Michael Grosberg, President and COO of Global Technology Systems, Inc.
