If you buy AA or AAA batteries buy rechargable ones..

April 26th, 2010 by Richard Lord

Rechargeable AA or AAA batteries are now readily available in Guernsey shops. 

There is a substantial cost saving to the consumer for purchasing and using rechargeable batteries instead of single-use disposable batteries.

Uniross batteries are endorsed by the World Wildlife Fund.  The packaging for Uniross AAA batteries claims that one rechargeable battery = 1000 disposable batteries.

You will need a charger to benefit from using rechargeable batteries.  A Uniross Quick battery charger, which can fully charge AA or AAA batteries in about 15 minutes, can be purchased for less than £20.00.

AAA batteries have a 1000 mAh rating and AA batteries can have a 2700 mAh rating.  AA batteries will work for longer per charge than AAA batteries.

Comparing the benefit of rechargeable AAA batteries to single-use disposable batteries in cost and waste generated

Rechargeable AA and AAA batteries are ideal for use in camera flashes, digital cameras, and torches.  Buying them will save money and substantially reduce the amount of batteries that need to be recycled or disposed of.
