Rechargable Batteries

Why should you consider purchasing rechargeable batteries instead of disposables?

Save money:

One AA NiZn rechargeable battery can replace at least 300 or more single-use batteries.

Help Save the Environment.

Rechargeable batteries provide a lower total cost of ownership over the product lifetime. And, when you consider that over 3 billion alkaline batteries end up in landfills each year, rechargeables are clearly the better choice for the environment.

Batteries Power Your World. The list of items powered by batteries is extensive and continues to grow. They provide many advantages and everyday conveniences.

Easy to Trash, But Don’t. It is the way they are disposed of that poses problems.

Enter rechargeable batteries. Understanding that not all rechargeables are recyclable, it’s important to buy ones that are. Nickel-Zinc (NiZn) is the most recyclable battery chemistry on the market. Unlike many other materials, both nickel and zinc can be recycled again and again while maintaining their physical and chemical properties, because the same amount of each element remains at the end of a particular product cycle as at the beginning.

Your New PowerGenix Batteries Will Help the Environment. PowerGenix rechargeable batteries use Nickel-Zinc and are RBRC certified recyclable.

PowerGenix battery facts:

Superior Power Density. PowerGenix batteries deliver a higher voltage in a smaller and lighter package than other rechargeable batteries. Most AA rechargeable batteries put out 1.2 Volts while Alkaline single use AA batteries are 1.6 Volts. Each PowerGenix AA battery puts out a full 1.6 Volts and therefore replaces precisely the power of a single use AA battery.
High Energy Density. The PowerGenix battery has up to one third more the energy density of a traditional nickel-cadmium (NiCd) battery when measured by either weight (Watt hours per kilogram) or by volume (Watt hours per liter).
Lower Cost. Inherently less expensive, zinc provides a significant cost savings over other rechargeable batteries.
Safety. NiZn is a proven safe chemistry that is abuse-tolerant.
Speedy Recharge. The PowerGenix battery is capable of completely recharging in less than two hours and achieves 80% recharge within one hour, a key benefit for cordless power tools, electronics and many other applications.
Cycle Life. The service life of the battery meets or beats that of most NiCd batteries in typical applications.
Long Shelf Life. Superior to lead-acid batteries which will sulfate over time limiting their shelf life, the PowerGenix NiZn battery has a significantly longer shelf life.
Environmentally Green. Both nickel and zinc are non-toxic and recycled easily and inexpensively. The zinc electrode contains no lead, cadmium or mercury, and presents no threat to the environment, making it an ideal replacement for lead and cadmium batteries.
