Yesterday we published an article informing you that a recent source reveals that Motorola smartwatch Moto 360 will actually have a 300 mAh battery whereas Motorola advertises that the watch will run on a 320 mAh battery. This created a stir among gadget lovers and the alleged fraudulence shocked many. Finally Motorola broke silence and spoke out with a justification. According to the company’s explanation, an electronic device’s working capability is somewhat less than the official battery specs. In smartphones they have to give both the capacities but since smartwatches have a size constraints they opt for the minimum.
“The typical battery capacity for Moto 360 is 320mAh and the minimum is 300mAh. In the mobile industry, sometimes both the minimum and typical capacity is listed on the battery, with the typical capacity quoted as the official battery size. Both figures are included on the batteries of our Moto X, Moto E and Moto G devices. In the case of smaller devices, we aren’t always able to list both figures. For Moto 360, we only had room for one figure and choose to list the minimal capacity of the battery. We see how this can be confusing and we will look into ways to add the typical capacity as well in the future,”
