There have been a number of questions regarding the power capabilities of the Bublcam over the past months. Until now we have indicated that the Bublcam “out-consumes” itself in terms of power. Meaning, you could not have the Bublcam running while connected to an external power source without it inevitably draining the battery at some point. The reason for this had to do with previous technology limitations and USB2 compliance.
We are so happy to be able to share with all of you that by utilizing a new configuration and a newly available power switch we made the power consumption and charging of the device much smarter. The Bublcam is now able to run indefinitely when plugged in. Alternatively, using an external USB power source you are able to greatly extend battery life.
While there are a number of factors that will impact the overall power consumption of the device, we determined the current battery capabilities to be roughly 45 minutes off a full charge if continuously capturing video. With this advancement, you’ll have much more flexibility considering where you are able to capture video and for how long.
The new configuration allows you to continuously capture spherical content without ever worrying about running out of battery.
As we continue on our way towards full scale production, look forward to more exciting updates from our fabulous team here at Bubl Technology.
This improvement has not impacted our production schedule. We still intend to reach full scale production by spring of this year.
