idol batteries top 2

These batteries aren’t full of electricity — they’re full of love.

Idol groups in Japan are big on interactions with fans. Whether it’s handshake events, flexing events, or being able to date and marry the idols themselves, as far as the managers are concerned, anything that gets fans closer to the idols gets them closer to their wallets.

And now we’ve entered the next stage of fans connecting to their favorite idols: Batteries that have been charged especially for them via sweating on a bike.

Pack of two idol-charged batteries can be purchased at LoveEnergy’s website for 3,000 yen (US$27). Sure, that may be about ten times as expensive as normal batteries, but can you really put a price on unrequited love?
