We purchase nearly 3 billion single-use dry-cell batteries a year in the United States. Many of these wind up in the landfill despite the fact that they can leach toxic metals, such as lead and mercury. People could recycle them, but the ideal solution is to abandon disposable batteries altogether. Reusable batteries are a much more environmentally friendly alternative.
ECO Recharge USB Rechargeable AAA and AA Batteries are here to help. These four-packs usually cost nearly $50, but this 67% discount drops their price to just $15.99. Why waste money and create landfill waste when reusable batteries are available? A safer choice for the planet is often a wiser choice for your wallet, too. These ECO Recharge packs are no exception.
Want to prevent 2,000 batteries from going to the landfill? Instead of buying new batteries every time your old ones die, just plug in these batteries with a USB cable to recharge them. They also come with built-in recharge control to protect against overcharging. If you take good care of these batteries, you should be able to reuse them 500 times.
The ECO Recharge batteries have multiple 5-star reviews, with user comments like “[they h]old a charge well. And last almost as long as a standard alkaline battery. Charge time at 8.5 hours seems a tad long, but the convenience of using a USB charger to charge makes up for that.”
