Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. A company called Pale Blue Earth is working to upend the battery world with lines of batteries and products that use lithium polymer technology. And unlike other rechargeables…they feature micro-USB ports so you don’t have to hunt around for a charger. Co-founder Steve Warren says by making charging fast and more convenient.. they can hopefully make a dent in all of those batteries that are disposed…
“Really the target demographic is to make it more convenient for people to be able to get themselves off disposable batteries to reduce the waste.”
The initial investment of 32 dollars for a four pack of double A batteries does sound like a drawback….but given that they can be recharged more than a thousand times… you can actually save money along with the environment.
