Five Great Reasons to Replace Your Dry Cell Battery Supplies with Rechargeable Batteries


| 4/27/2010 1:34:11 PM


Each year, more than two billion household batteries are disposed, and that number only represents those that are sent to landfills. The effect on our environment from discarded dry cell batteries can be catastrophic over time, polluting our world’s ground soil and water supply, resulting in health hazards to humans, plants, and animals.

The number of chemicals and metals in batteries can be staggering. For example, a car battery has almost 20 pounds of lead in it and 16 ounces of sulfuric acid.

As our society continues to heavily depend on battery supplies to power many common electronic devices, such as digital cameras and flashlights, the need for efficient and ecologically responsible battery use has become paramount.

Replacing traditional dry cell batteries with rechargeable batteries offers a number of important benefits, highlighting meanings of “eco,” economical and ecological, simultaneously.

1. A typical dry cell battery lasts only as long as its life cycle, limiting the use to one time only. Rechargeable batteries can be recharged and reused more than 500 times. In fact, there are some rechargeable batteries out there that can be charged again 1,000 or more times.



2. Buying dry cell batteries that can only be used once is typically less expensive upfront, but that cost increases dramatically over time. Thankfully, budget-minded supply managers know rechargeable batteries allow hundreds of cycles per battery, making the cost per unit go down over times used, resulting in hundreds or thousands of dollars in cost savings each year.
