Charging up in Las Vegas
By Beth Conahan
Batteries of the new millennium will be shown this year at the International Consumer Electronics Show.
Speaking of batteries of the millennium, Millennium Batteries, a brand owned by Moltech Power Systems (a recent spin-off by Energizer), will show its round cells and chargers lines, which are ideal for high drain devices, such as digital cameras, CD players and handheld computers. The brand's rechargeable power packs come in both lithium ion and NiMH. The company offers two battery chargers. The AA Charger plugs directly into a wall outlet and charges two or four AA batteries at a time. The Millennium Universal Charger fully charges AA, AAA, C, D and 9-volt NiMH batteries in five hours.
