Toshiba has just announced a new addition to its REGZA TV line up. Called the 19P2, this LCD TV is 19″ in size (1366 x 768) and has a feature that makes it stand apart from other TVs – it features a removable internal battery that’s capable of giving you 5 hours of continuous entertainment on your TV in the event of a blackout in your home. It’s also handy if you’re bringing your TV outdoors for awhile i.e. you feel like watching some TV while getting a tan in your backyard or having a picnic and you’ve got no power socket within reach. Extra batteries can be purchased for about $86 (7,000 Yen) each.
The TV features a 1Seg Digital TV Tuner, an HDMI port and the D4 Japanese input. It will be available this summer in Japan. While the idea of being able to watch TV during a blackout is great – you’re not going to be able to watch Blu-ray movies when there’s no power to keep your players running.
