EEVblog #1099 – BattBump Kickstarter REDACTED EDITION!

UPDATE: Someone has paid for a massive amount of Dislikes on this and my other BattBump video!
The infamous video is back up, with hilarious redactions to prevent illegitimate Youtube Privacy complaints from, I don’t know, Bozo the clown perhaps, you can’t be too careful these days on Youtube!

You can still see the Kickstarter campaign and all the details here:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1749849235/battbump-an-app-to-share-and-receive-phone-battery/
The campaign was shut down by the owner, it was not removed by Kickstarter.

BattBump – A mobile app to share battery charge via NFC!
Yes, it’s as stupid as it sounds.
It’s NOT a joke, it’s the dumbest Kickstarter idea ever.
