NEW DELHI: As more professionals try to adopt the new normal, people are looking at various ways to make remote working easier.

Vijay Shekhar Sharma has a new proposition that can make work-from-home a breeze. The Paytm Founder took to Twitter on Tuesday to share his brilliant tech idea of making broadband modem and WiFi routers user friendly.

While most houses have power back-ups, the fluctuating electricity can be painful for working professionals coordinating with their teams on video or voice call.

The entrepreneur suggested installing a battery inside broadband modem and WiFi routers. He said that the mini-UPS (uninterruptible power source) can offers few minutes of power backup during small power outage scenarios when people are working from home.

Meanwhile, Abhigyan Modi, Country Manager of Adobe India and VP Engineering of Adobe Document Cloud, suggested a slight tweak to Sharma's tech idea. He said that adding batteries to adapters would be a simpler option. While the product will remain the same, users can carry different adapters if they visit countries with power issues.


The 41-year-old new-age billionnaire was thrilled by Modi's response, calling it the 'perfect Indian answer'. He further added that people can use the in-built battery adapters for DTH box or even as mobile charger.

He further urged innovative Indian charger-maker to design and manufacture battery-powered chargers for modems, set-top box, phones, among other things.
