WatchBattery has started stocking the Hybrio battery:
Rechargeable batteries are brilliant aren't they? With more than 20,000 tonnes of disposable batteries being dumped into UK landfill sites each year, by using rechargeable batteries you are doing your bit for the environment and saving yourself money too.

Uniross have developed a hybrid battery that combines all the benefits of standard alkaline batteries together with the eco-friendly advantages of rechargeable batteries.
