Did you know that Americans purchase nearly 3 billion dry-cell batteries every year to power radios, toys, mobile phones, watches, laptops, and portable power tools? These batteries have heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and nickel which can pollute the environment when batteries are disposed improperly. When burned, certain metals might be freed into the atmosphere or concentrated in ash as by products. One way to help the environment is to use rechargeable batteries or support products which promote less electronic waste like the upcoming Sanyo Eneloop Stick Booster. This pen, like portable power source is the latest addition to Sanyo’s Eneloop series that promotes â€œlifestyle that values reusing and recycling”.
The KBC-D1AS Eneloop Stick Booster uses a general USB port to recharge different portable gadgets like cellphones, mp3 players and handheld consoles. Unlike other dry cell based mobile chargers that sometimes fall short in charging performance, the stick booster can provide a stable current even to devices that require high current. This is possible thru Sanyo’s output control technology that regulates current being delivered to mobile devices. Eneloop is bundled with 2 AA rechargeable batteries that can charge 1,500 times. After reaching the battery’s lifespan, it’s also good to know that it can be easily replaced. Compared to the world’s largest battery that occupies 2,000 square meters and weighs 1,300 tons; the Eneloop is very slim and light. It is housed by stick-type aluminum casing which measures less than 2 cm and weighing 76 grams.
