Switching to Rechargeable Batteries is Easier Than You Think
The biggest complaint about Rechargeable Batteries is the simple fact that they need to be recharged. It seems that every time you need a battery, rechargeable batteries aren't charged. There are quite a few solutions to this problem.
Start by looking at your daily electronic lifestyle:
Most people charge batteries every day and don't even realize it. Cellular phones, laptops and wireless controllers are all devices that the majority of households are charging nightly. Try using a charging station to have all your chargers in one place, which will make charging your AAs and AAAs even easier and more routine.
Precharged NiMH batteries are the next step in the NiMH chemistry. Precharged NiMH differs from regular NiMH by not self-discharging when in storage. This means that batteries will stay charged for up to a year while in storage. So the next time you need a battery they are ready to go.
The environmental focus of batteries is the biggest impact that you can have. Disposable, one-time-use batteries are simply thrown out after one use. When you compare that to the hundreds of times that you can reuse a rechargeable battery, the benefits hit your pocketbook and don't get thrown in the landfill.
