I have been using my BTJ pill-sized hologram Bible for a little over 3 years now and even though we advertise that the battery life lasts only 1.5 years, they clearly last longer without ever charging or changing the battery.
However, extended battery life is not the only way that our pill-sized Bible exceeds expectations.
During our last US tour, I was demonstrating how to use the BTJ hologram Bible to a couple of former US Marines who attended our meeting in Fairfax Virginia when the battery died. I didn’t have a back up unit to use, and so the demonstration was cut short.
I was saddened, but not completely surprised. The unit has lasted much longer than I had ever dreamed. To be honest, I am a horrible care-taker of the special electronic Bible. I do not keep it in a special case, I am constantly banging it around in my brief case, and often smashing it in my pocket between a set of car keys and mobile phone.
This week though, after doing a meeting in Franklin, Tennessee, I had forgotten the dead unit in my pants pocket while doing a load of laundry. After the laundry cycle was completed, I emptied out the machine to see a small unmistakable pill-sized electronic unit laying at the bottom.
I do not know what happened, but it was washed, rejuvenated, and is working again!
The unit is charged by movement, so did the spin cycle recharge the unit? Did the washing machine help make a connection that was broken? It is a complete mystery!
But, now we can add one more dimension to the BTJ Pill-Sized Hologram Bible by saying – “Not only is it amazing to read the entire Bible on the such a small device, but it is also waterproof!”
