Has it happened to you? You're right in the middle of an interview and all of a sudden one light goes out. It appears the battery in your light has died and so you have to basically start that interview process over. If only you had one central interface to be able to view the power levels of every battery on set, knowing exactly how much time you have left, and which ones need to be swapped out. Well, now there is such a tool.
