Handy rechargeable USB batteries means it’s time to chuck out the chargers!
MoreFrom.me’s full of flash pieces of kit ranging from top of the range laptops to the latest LED TVs.
But sometimes, it’s worth noticing that good things really do come in small packages, especially a nifty product I’ve found very useful.
The Moixa USB Cell AA Rechargeable Batteries have proven to be a bit of a godsend in our gaff since we got our hands on these little beauties.
I’m a user of wireless mice and keyboards, and whilst in many ways they are spot on, they use up a hell of a lot of batteries. Batteries of course cost money, and rechargables are to be quite frankly honest a bit of a pain in the derriere.
Up until recently I’ve been using clunky chargers that take ages to boost batteries back to anywhere near an acceptable level of juice. Sometimes you even need to leave them on overnight, and carrying them around is just extra baggage.
However, these USB batteries just make life a little easier.
The premise is simple. Just plug these batteries into any USB port, and they will charge up in about 5 hours. Pop the top back on, put them in your device and they power it up. Sorted.
They’re great when on the move as there is no need for any cables, and I can finally cast off those blasted chargers.
Using them is going to save me money as I don’t have to keep shelling out on alkaline batteries, and also it will save energy that won’t be used up using chargers. That’s also good for the environment too.
Also, there’s no need to worry about losing the tops off them as they have a little cord that is attached to the barrel of the battery.
These are mightily handy things that I’m sure will come in useful in many situations. A must buy!
