Product Description

One Tethercell per device!

Tethercell is extremely simple to install. First, remove a single AA-battery from whichever device you choose.  Next, make sure that Tethercell already has a AAA battery installed within it, then replace the removed AA battery with Tethercell. No matter how many AA batteries are required to run the device, you only need one Tethercell. After the Tethercell is snug in the battery compartment, turn on the device, fire up the Tetherboard app after downloading it free from the App store and you're ready to connect from any iOS or Android device that is Bluetooth Smart compatible.

The Tethercell Mobile App

You can think of The Tethercell App as your Tethercell control center. From the Tethercell App you can easily connect to and control all active Tethercells in range straight from this intuitive interface which is freely downloadable for supported devices. Tethercell's range is approximately 100 feet, line of sight (outdoors), and approximately 50-60 feet indoors.

Multiple problems with the Tethercell:

- First off, one of the cells is defective. I can discover both cells but one refuses to connect. I verified on two iOS devices and one Android phone— Connecting to the 'bad' cell will cause it to drop off and immediately re-appear, only to repeat the process.

- Secondly, the iOS App is terrible. ( Tested on iOS 8.4.1, iPhone6+, iPhone 6 )
- If I set a custom device name for a tethercell, then save, The custom setting is completely forgotten when reconnecting to the tethercell again. ) it just looks like the settings aren't getting written to the cell.
- Tapping "Rules" on the app when a cell hasn't been configured causes the app to crash. Tapping settings cause the app to hang, then crash. ( Lots of crashes in this app ). The app doesn't look like it's been updated since the iPhone6 has been released.
- Through some miracle of repeated attempts, I was able to give a custom name to a tethercell, and upon scanning the app again, I see the custom-named tethercell, plus a second unconfigured entry ( two entries for the same tethercell ) and tapping on either causes the app to crash.

I could sit here writing bugs for this terrible hardware/software combination, but it's not worth it. At best, if at all this app worked, it would be a bad knockoff of WeMo functionality, but without the push notifications ( I was never prompted to allow push notifications — therefore the app can only alert me when it's running. Hardly useful )

In summary, one cell arrived defective; The one that worked was hobbled by an app that crashed more often than it produced any usable functionality. Don't bother with this purchase.

Over priced underdeveloped product. The Tethercell app is super buggy. The app is super basic and has a very underdeveloped User Interface. The settings tab is completely blank. Only one of my cells will connect, and the other is assumed defective or broken. I have emailed support for help. The packaging includes no instructions other than to visit the URL for a user manual, and the user manual then directs you to the App for instructions which aren't there! I am excited about the possibilities of this product, but this is beta hardware and software being sold at a premium price.

I was trying to find a solution to turning off/on an old Gingerbread House that I put out during the holidays. The switch was on the bottom so I had to lift up the house to turn it off or on. This adapter worked perfectly. Easy to install and the remote worked every time.

The idea behind these is great, but the app is clumsy, and only works intermittently. I was hoping to use it in a AA powered usb battery pack to activate a usb light. The combination of the lousy battery pack with the smart battery was basically a complete disaster.

OK these really do work very nice. If you have anything that uses AA Batteries this will work. I have collectables that I keep in glass display cases that I can now turn on and off remotely and don't have to gain direct access to these items anymore.
You can even schedule on and off times you want anything to turn on and for how long.
Very nice item, sure glad I found them.

Well, I'm still waiting for the "app update coming". Right now it's pretty buggy and unusable. I really wanted it to work, but it's not ready yet :(

If this is something you will turn on and off a lot and not keep on for long periods of time,then this is just the item you're looking for.There is some issues with connection sometimes,but just keep trying,it'll work.All in all a good product.
I love being able to turn on my collectibles without getting in the case.

So far I have 2 units connected to 2 separate devices, an Apple Magic Mouse and a Vornando desktop fan.
Both Tethercells are working well. The Rules feature needs some work, but I've had a good experience so far.
