Battery Powered Television Sets (TV’s)

Since the introduction of TV’s, rechargeable DC batteries have been of much importance in providing power for the sets, although they’ve come of age after an aggressive distribution of AC power lines by governments around the globe, there are still remote areas where AC power is not available. In addition, technology has brought forth portable TV’s which require battery power to function, most of these devices comfortably fit in your pocket and can be carried around whether on a trip or just away from home. The introduction of TV’s led to emergence of broadcasters who provide TV programming content to viewers; viewers around the world have become glued to TV shows to an extent they won’t do without them, these programs may include sports, lifestyle, reality, music, kids and movies. In Kenya for instance, there are still rural areas not covered by power lines, a lot of people in these areas use battery powered television sets to watch their favorite TV shows.

Solar energy has emerged as a major solution in reducing dangerous gas emissions compared to power generated via oil driven generators; in most cases, solar panels are fitted with a rechargeable battery which stores power that is later utilized to power devices such as TV’s. The first TV sets were mainly powered by batteries and produced images in black and white color scheme; however, there are colored TV’s today which are built with a DC jerk for battery power, inverters can also be used to convert battery current from DC to AC and power AC TV’s. There are several electronic devices such as DVD players, VHS players and remote controls that use battery power to function, most of these devices work hand in hand with regular television sets to add additional capabilities in an effort to enhance user experience. Out of the above uses of battery power to enhance TV functionality, the most common occasion when batteries are used to power TV’s is when going for a trip with family members; batteries enable TV reception as long as the sun is up using solar power.
The length of time a battery can power your TV is solely dependent on TV power consumption and battery capacity, colored TV’s consume much power compared to black and white sets, in addition, traditional cathode ray tube sets use a lot of power in generating images leading to a higher power consumption compared to LCD and Plasma panels. Its also obvious big television sets will take up a lot of power to function compared to small portable sets; in most cases, you’ll receive an AC charger with your portable TV, however, if the unit uses standard batteries, you’ll be required to purchase a wall charger, a 12 volt charger will also do you good for topping your TV up in the car as well. Non portable TV’s on the other hand use 12volts DC standalone acid batteries, you can charge them from a vendor with a charging machine using electricity or just use solar to recharge.
