Battery Operated Blender

For people who love to make their own drinks on the go, a battery operated blender is a must-have. Blenders have been around for a long time, but battery operated blenders have only been a viable option for a short amount of time. Blenders require a lot of power to operate, and so portable versions never became very popular. The battery life was just too short for most people. However, advancements in energy and battery technology have opened a lot of new options for devoted blender users that just weren’t available even ten years ago.

Another reason why battery operated blenders haven’t become more popular (and advanced) is simple lack of demand: there are few times when we need blenders and can’t find an electrical outlet. Most types of devices that become portable and/or battery powered require a lot of movement or outside use. That’s simply not true of blenders, which are usually used indoors. Furthermore, the electrical cord attached to a blender doesn’t significantly ad to its bulk, and certainly not as much as batteries do, so there is no size imperative either. Most blender users don’t ever take a blender out of their homes, so the battery feature is only appealing to a small market.

Battery operated blenders are mostly useful to people who are going to use them outdoors. This niche of consumers is mostly made out of campers, who go through long periods of time without being near an electrical outlet. Of course, battery powered blenders are useful for anybody who needs to do blending outdoors, whether for a picnic, trip or just because you spend a lot of time outside. People who take long road trips can also find a lot of uses for battery powered blenders. In general, they’re great for the health-conscious drinker on the move.

There are two types of battery operated blenders: rechargeable blenders and blenders that use disposable. Until the last few decades, one of the major hurdles to battery operated blenders has been that they require a lot of battery power to operate. This is especially true at higher settings required to blend harder fruits and vegetables. That means that batteries had to be replaced often, and that battery operated blenders are often limited in their features and maximum power. While many people don’t need blenders to do more than mix, that’s a deal for blender users who need a more powerful appliance.

Rechargeable blenders have, in large part, solved both of these problems fairly well. First, they don’t require waste, which reduces their long-term price, weight, maintenance and increases their overall value. Rechargeable batteries also don’t have the same power limits as normal batteries, which allows them to handle more tasks than a normal battery powered blender, which is limited to mixing and light blending. And of course, they’re simply more convenient, not only because the battery doesn’t have to be replaced (for a few years), but also because recharging the battery is such an easy, passive activity.

Battery powered blenders come in a few different shapes and sizes, but they’re smaller and less powerful than electric blenders of the same price. However, they have improved recently in both power and in price. Normally, a battery operated blender will cost about $30 more than an equivalent normal blender, depending on how powerful it is. The most powerful, feature-heavy and expensive blenders can cost well over $300, but a more reasonable blender can cost less than $50. How much you need to spend just depends on how you use it: if all you do is mix drinks, then a cheap one will be fine for your needs, but if you need to make smoothies out of fruits and vegetables, you’ll likely need a much more expensive blender.
