Power tools might not be the first thing that comes to mind regarding CES, but the Black+Decker Smartech Battery is here to change things in 2016. Working with the new lineup of power tools from the brand, Black+Decker Smartech Battery technology works by connecting power sources to users' smartphones to enhance functionality.
Capable of enabling users to keep track of when it's time to recharge and even restrict usage to prevent children from using the tools, the battery technology will also offer the functionality of charging other devices.
If a battery is misplaced, the new technology will allow users to get the battery to emit a sound to locate it. Able to be purchased separately and incorporated with existing tools, the Black+Decker Smartech Battery helps expand connected home products to the garage.
