SecondWind battery charger for non-rechargeable batteriesEvery time I throw out a used battery, I feel a little pang of eco-guilt. But the investment in rechargable batteries for every remote, ever gadget, every kids’ toy that beeps and boops in our home would be pretty big. So I am absolutely fascinated by this battery recharger that gives your regular old batteries a new life.

The SecondWind battery charger may
be an amazing step towards diminishing the three billion (wowwwww)
dry-cell batteries tossed in the US every year. It’s meant to charge
regular old disposable AA and AAA batteries safely–something you can’t do in a
charger meant specifically for rechargable batteries.

Plus it only takes about 90 minutes to get a full charge; hey, that’s
nearly as much time as it takes you to read the directions on those
kids’ tablets and toys anyway. I haven’t tried it myself so I can’t vouch for it personally, but if it
does what it says it does, it’s one heck of a good green bit of
technology.   –Liz
