Has The Technology Of Batteries Moved On?

Aug 23, 2008
Batteries might not be the most exciting thing to mention when trying to chat up a girl at a party but as all gadget lovers know they are the life blood of our consumer electronics filled lives. Here are four batteries that will make sure you last that little bit longer.

Sanyo eneloop range
Sanyo has added a new bundle to its eneloop range of re-chargeable batteries. The new power pack contains 4 x AA cells, 2 x AAA cells , 2 x D-size adapters, 2 x C-size adapters and a quick charger - so everything you need to keep your gadgets juiced up.

Sanyo has also launched a USB charger which comes as standard with two AA or two AAA batteries. The eneloop range is claimed to be different because they do not discharge as much energy as conventional rechargeable batteries over time - losing 15 percent of their capacity over a year.

The eneloop range is available at Argos.

Energiser Advanced Lithium battery
Energizer has launched a new battery that promises to fuel gamers and gadget fans for longer. The new Energizer Advanced Lithium battery promises to use the latest battery tech (yawn) to increase your gadgets lifespan by up to 20 hours longer (yay).

And if your planning on playing in Siberia or the north pole they might be doubly helpful as according to Energizer they new batteries performs well in extreme temperatures from -40 degrees to 60 degrees C.

Energizer Advanced Lithium joins the existing Energizer Ultimate Lithium and Energizer Rechargeable range in the performance battery segment.

USBCell
The humble USB port is becoming more and more useful. First came the memory card with built-in USB plug, now comes the USB-charged battery.

Moixa Energy has developed the USBCELL as an environmentally-friendly alternative to normal AA batteries. The top of one side flips up to reveal a USB connector, and the battery simply plugs into an open port.

The first batteries available are AA sized, but Moixa plans to unveil a full range standard formats, as well as phone and camera batteries.

The convenience of the USBCELL means that you do not have to carry around a separate charger or cables, and can charge it in a game station, as well as in keyboards and monitors with USB sockets.

Uniross eco range
The new Uniross range includes 14 different types of batteries and 16 chargers and adding to those eco credentials, comes in 100 percent recycled and recyclable packaging and is fully endorsed by the WWF.

The new range offers sizes from AAA to D and 9V. It takes five hours to charge one of the cells if it was fully discharged; each battery has a capacity of 1300mAH.

Apparently more powerful and more convenient than ever, you can now use the batteries straight out of the packet, just like a throwaway battery, but when they run out you can juice them up, up to 1000 times.
