Five products you didn’t know needed rechargeable batteries

duracell rechargeable batteriesRechargeable batteries are often the most cost-effective and energy efficient way to power your personal and office appliances.

When you think of rechargeable batteries you may automatically think of the traditional AA batteries and the charger that you plug into the wall.

However there are many products you probably use which you perhaps don’t realise rely on rechargeable batteries.

 

Mobile phones

Almost everyone owns a mobile phone in this day and age. It will be used daily whether it’s for business or social reasons. You probably haven’t ever thought about it, but your mobile phone relies on a rechargeable battery in order to work. Like any other rechargeable battery, mobile phone batteries are charged using mains electricity but through a cable. Mobile phone batteries can be repeatedly charged many times but may eventually lose power and need to be replaced. You can buy mobile phone batteries from Buy A Battery when their ability to retain charge eventually diminishes.

 

Cordless phones

Most homes no longer have a house phone that is tethered to the wall with a cord. Cordless phones allow the user freedom to move around their home. This freedom means that they rely on rechargeable batteries which negates the need of constant mains electricity use. These batteries are usually charged though a base unit but they can have batteries which need to be removed and put into a charging unit plugged into a wall outlet. Just like with mobile phones, eventually these batteries will start to lose power and their charge time will continue to reduce, but replacements are available.

 

Laptops

Another product that you might not realise uses rechargeable batteries is a laptop computer. Again, it may be something you’ve never really considered having a rechargeable battery. A laptop’s power comes from its battery, which, just like a mobile phone, can be charged using mains electricity. This battery then has the ability to hold that charge, making the laptop portable. It is charged through a mains cable when the battery runs low. Like all rechargeable batteries, it has a long lifespan but will eventually need replacing as time goes on.

 

Power tools

For DIY enthusiasts or workers in any manual trade, you’ll know it’s extremely convenient to own a power tool that has a rechargeable battery. While some drills and other tools can run on mains, this can leave you tethered to a wall or having long extension cords trailing after you. Most modern power tools come with rechargeable battery units, which, once fully charged in a base unit, give out maximum energy to make your life easier. Often, these battery units are interchangeable between many different products, such as drills, saws, sanders and torches, which are of the same brand.

 

Wireless technology

Wireless technology is a very convenient and sought after commodity. While they may connect to your computer wirelessly, wireless keyboards and mice use batteries to draw their power. It’s definitely beneficial to use rechargeable batteries for these, as running out of power half way through an important piece of work or during the office day is a serious inconvenience.
