Batteries are one of the few things that bridge the gap between primitive and modern day tools.
But there is a huge problem with them… most of the standard batteries we have on hand are a one time use item, that gets tossed as soon as they run out of juice.
Sure they have long lasting lithium batteries, and rechargeable NiMH batteries and a few other different types, but those are a good deal more expensive.
What If I told you that you could now recharge “one-time use” alkaline batteries?
Can you imagine how much money that would save over the course of a year??
Now after accidentally blowing up several CD players in my youth I have to admit I am a little hesitant about these…
But based on the reviews on amazon as well as the reviews on amazon, I think this gadget is worth a shot!
Now maybe everyone else knew this, but I certainly didn’t!
This means that once you have purchased a battery charger, such as this Universal Rapid Charger, you then effectively extended the average life of each of your batteries at least 2-3 times.
If you pick up one of these you should start asking friends and family to save their batteries for you.
You could also ask local stores like Best Buy and even your workplace if they could save their batteries for you.
Now this might not be news to some of you, but I was surprised to find out that a AA battery wasn’t a single use item any more!
Hopefully this gadget saves some money for people like me, that didn’t know.
Think about how much we depend on batteries.
All our flashlights, remotes and radios etc take batteries; not to mention, if you have kids or grand-kids!
How much do you think you spend throughout the year on all of the batteries that go into their toys and portable game systems?
If nothing else, it is for more Eco-friendly to reuse old batteries, rather than just throwing them in the trash…
And I know that When TSHTF this thing runs off of a wall outlet… but just curious if anyone knows if this will work on a solar generator?
It takes a long time to charge the batteries but has a relatively low power consumption
P.S. It’s not just AA batteries that this thing charges.
It also charges AAA, C, D, N, 9V, Ni-MH (Nickel Metal Hydride), Ni-CD (Nickel Cadmium), RAM (Rechargeable Alkaline Manganese) and even Alkaline (previously Non-Rechargeable) batteries all on the same tool!
Check this charger out and let me know what you think!
