The Best Dressed Battery Lasts The Longest

In our somewhat mobile society, most of the electronic devices we use on a daily basis run on battery power. Obviously, we want those devices to run as long as possible between recharges or battery replacements. Fewer charges equals less power usage and fewer battery replacements are considered an environmental mitzvah.

Heeding the environmental ‘call to arms’, Batteroo Corp. of Sunnyvale, CA has devised a device it calls the Batteriser. Groomed for use with alkaline batteries, Batteriser is a reusable jacket that slips over most batteries and frees up to 80% of the remaining energy that is usually thrown away. The jacket is forged from stainless steel that is less than 0.1-mm thick and, it is said, works with both new and used batteries.

Available for AA, AAA, C, and D batteries, Batteroo claims its Batteriser has been tested for compatibility with a variety of home and office products. These include wireless keyboards, noise-canceling headphones, Xbox and Wii controllers, TV remote controls, walkie-talkies, digital scales, electronic toothbrushes, portable radios, flashlights, and blood pressure monitors.

On paper, this sounds like a great idea, particularly if you consider how many spent batteries are ending up in the trash and who actually knows where they find a final resting place. The initial question to ask here is does this little wonder work with rechargeable batteries. Yes or no, one-shot deal or rechargeable, the problem still exists: where do we put all those eventually-to-be-deceased batteries?
