With the tons of garbage created every year by throwing out your typical disposable batteries, it’s clear there needs to be a more eco-friendly way to power our simple electronic devices. The USB rechargeable batteries give us this alternative by offering a more practical rechargeable battery that can be charged anywhere there is a USB port!
How simple is that? No more separate charging devices to keep track of (who can ever remember where they put those things, anyway?). Just pop off the top of the rechargeable batteries and slide it into any USB port and let it power up.
They all have different capacity with variation of the range of 1300~1500mAH which is in line with most NiCd and NiMH batteries. When powering up, an LED at the end of the USB rechargeable batteries lets you know it’s charging; once complete the LED turns off. And, with its innovative charging circuitry, it’s okay to give it a partial charge, in case you need just enough power to get off one picture in your digital camera. They can also be charged up to 500 times before losing any significant amount of capacity!
But imagine how many of your devices use AA batteries already: MP3 players, wireless game controllers and mice, remote controls for the TV and DVD player and on and on. With all those uses, you’re looking to pay a substantial amount of money replacing your alkaline batteries whenever they die.

- Recommended charge time of 5 hours via USB or 7 hours in an approved 250 mA Ni-MH charger
- No need to charge cells before their first use.
