Rechargeable Batteries are clearly good for the environment and also significantly cheaper, over prolonged use. In fact, after 2 or 3 charge cycles, a rechargeable battery has paid for itself. What's more, rechargeable batteries can be recharged up to 1000 times making them a sensible choice for cost-savvy consumers.
With an average amount of recharge cycles close to 1000x, the financial and environmental advantages of rechargeable batteries are incredible. Rechargeable batteries are only twice the price of regular batteries, but last up to 1000 times longer. Battery disposal and recycling is reduced considerably as well.
Slow-discharge rechargeable batteries such as ‘Hybrio’ and ‘Stay-Charged’ now arrive pre-charged, so the hassle of the initial charge is removed and batteries at rest retain their charge. In cases of heavy use, savings can run into thousands of pounds in the first year alone.
