Which battery-operated blinds have long lifespan?

Silent Gliss 4955 roller blinds with Newlife

Even though most of us never stop to appreciate this revolutionary invention, we found the National Battery Day the perfect opportunity.

While the origin of the first battery is still debated, most sources accredit Alessandro Volta as the inventor, back in the 1800s. The invention would earn him the title of Count, and today’s date also celebrates the anniversary of his birth.

As convenient as they are silent, batteries have changed the world in terms of giving us wireless autonomy by powering devices and appliances of all kinds, from our cars and phones to our blinds.

In the domain of battery-operated blinds, we have a wide variety of options, depending on the wiring, weight capacity, appearance, battery-life, etc. that the installation needs.

Since this article is focused about the convenience of batteries, these are some of the roller blinds with the longest battery life that we can recommend:

In general, you may go for a battery-operated blind because:

  • Batteries are often easy to replace with standard ones
  • They have a long lifespan, ranging from three to tens of years (in case of rechargeable batteries), depending on the use.

All in all, we’re thankful for batteries and how easier they make our lives!
