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.
The problem with NiMH rechargeable batteries however, is that they tend to lose their charge quite quickly. You may have charged some NiMH batteries for spares and find that when you come to use them some weeks later that they are completely discharged. Now there is an answer.
Uniross have developed a hybrid battery that combines all the benefits of standard alkaline batteries together with the eco-friendly advantages of rechargeable batteries.
