The app will also allow players to choose the type of battery pack that is being used, as well as the size of the battery in a particular device, the NFL said.
While the NFL did not say how many devices will be offered, it said its players are expected to be able use up to four different battery packs at once, including the latest and greatest.
“We’re working hard to get players’ phones as efficient as possible so they can be used more efficiently, while also saving players money,” NFL chief technology officer, Dan Guerrero, said in a statement.
The players will also be able adjust their battery usage for different sports and different applications.
“It will also give us a chance to share some real-world experiences that we haven’t had in the past, and we’ll continue to improve the experience,” Guerrero said.
The NFL will be offering a $20 rebate to anyone who signs up for a new NFL Mobile App to get a free 30-day trial of the app.
