The Panasonic battery range currently comprises of 4 different alkaline grades: EVOLTA, Pro Power, Everyday Power and Alkaline Power – each one with a different capacity. As different appliances require different levels of energy, Panasonic want to help battery consumers “see the wood for the trees” by guiding them through their purchase decision. Although the battery app has been designed primarily to facilitate a search for batteries, it also comes with some additional fun features, as follows:
1. Use ‘Find My Battery’ to find the right battery
The ‘Find my Battery’ function will help users to learn which battery type they need for a particular electronic device, by choosing from a list of simple icons. If they cannot find a device from the list, then a list of ‘other appliances’ is made available. As soon as they have chosen an appliance and a battery size, the app suggests the best suited Panasonic battery line for their purpose. It also provides additional information to prevent users from purchasing the wrong type of battery.
2. Choose the ‘Augmented Reality’ feature for a supernatural experience
In addition to the app’s primary features, a third, neater function has been added. The ‘Augmented Reality’ function allows smartphone users to add an extra dimension to their photos. As the scene changes through different photo shots, the AR function will add to the picture a 3D image of Spider-Man (a reference to Panasonic’s latest co-branding franchise: the new ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ movie). This will enable users to ‘take a selfie with Spiderman’ in a variety of different locations around the world! Moreover, until 31 December 2017, European Spider-Man enthusiasts can win a city trip to New York, by trying to catch as many contacts into their digital & social media webs – just like Spider-Man himself.
The Panasonic Battery App will be available in the Google Play and App Store as of 26 October.
