In earlier days if you wanted to power the machine, attached to your Lego set, then you have to use a Lego battery box. Those large bulky used 6 AAA batteries to power your Lego gear. With time, gadgets have become sleeker and sophisticate. Now you can power your Lego creation with Buwizz. It is a packed together four-channel rechargeable battery with inbuilt Bluetooth connectivity to control your Lego models from your android or iOS phone. The battery retention power is much stronger and much lighter and smaller than the previous version. It can control 8 Lego XL motor simultaneously, which is a gigantic upgrading over the battery box. If the battery is low in power, it would be indicated in your phone, a tailor-made interface and charging through micro USB are some cool features of this modern gadget.
This rechargeable battery mostly comes in a dark grey tone which does not harmonize with other Lego colors. But the size of the battery is perfect as it fits entirely inside a Lego creation. The molding of the battery is up to standard but can be improved. There are two connecting port incorporated on the top surface of the battery. One is a LED indicator and four Lego power functions compatible power channels. You can charge the battery through a micro USB. But it is not included in the factory pack; you have to buy it. This deficiency takes away the charm of the plug and plays status.
The green glow of LED signifies that the battery is completely charged. There is an app via which a connection is established between your phone/tablet and the battery. The app is user friendly and ascertains a flawless connection. There are six inbuilt control interfaces to maneuver your Lego creation. This requires trivial adjustments as the app displays which motor is connected to which port.
There are three modes of operation in this battery; normal, fast and ludicrous. The ludicrous modes supply three times more power to the motor. This feature enables the motor to handle heavy loads from chunky builds or drive-in outdoor. You can drive your Lego car on the grass on slightly sharp inclines.
This gadget has more advantages over Lego`s own power function batteries. The device perfectly seats inside your Lego creation and can be controlled by your phone. The Bluetooth connection is seamless. When you use this integrated battery, you do not need the Lego battery pack, but only the motors to create your own mechanical Lego model. The power advantage is much higher than the Legos` own power system. The appearance of the battery may not be impressive, but the function ability certainly is. This gadget has another advantage as it does not require two batteries and SBricks. This significantly reduces the weight of the vehicle by 100 grams which is a significant factor for high-speed performance. As each motor is connected separately, this ensures circuit protection despite using one power supply. The price of the battery is quite reasonable, with unparalleled performance.
