Standard Rechargeables


Standard size, rechargeable batteries: AA, AAA, C, D and 9V have improved significantly.
Most are pre-charged when new and stay charged when not in use. Remember that it is not just an issue of capacity. Higher capacities tend to be traded off against cycle life and charge retention when not in use.

Technical Information: Standard Rechargeables

Ready to use rechargeable technology

The latest Nickel Metal Hydride Technology features a much lower self discharge than conventional rechargeable technology. This offers the benefits of:
  • Pre-charged: Ready to use when purchased
  • Stay charged when not in use: Excellent capacity retention - retains up to 80% over 12 months
  • Longer cycle life: Can be recharged many more times than previous technology
  • Saves money: Equivalent to several hundred single-use batteries
  • Good for all applications: Combines the benefits of both alkaline and rechargeables
  • 4 times longer lasting: Lasts up to 4 times longer than alkaline in digital cameras
  • Environmentally friendly: Reduces battery disposal
