AAA rechargeable batteries to keep you powered
If you are a regular user of single-use batteries, you can save a fortune by choosing rechargeable batteries. Instead of repeatedly replacing your worn out power cells, you can simply pop them in the charger and they will be ready to go again in just a few hours. AAA rechargable batteries can be recharged like this up to 1000 times, so you can soon see how the savings stack up.
Types of AAA rechargeable batteries
There's a wide range of AAA batteries available, and you need to choose your batteries based on the power you need. Low drain uses, such as cameras and TV remote controls only need a low power battery, between 500mAh and 1000mAh. On the other hand, high power devices, such as MP3 players, will need a higher specification, in the 1000mAh to 2000mAh range.
Choosing AAA rechargeable batteries
As well as choosing the power of your AAA rechargeable batteries, you can also choose the lifespan, with the higher quality brands offering 3 or even 5 year guarantees. Please note that AAA rechargeable batteries, also known as HR03 batteries, are designed to a set size and will only fit equipment designed for this size.
Pre-charged batteries and chargers
For added convenience, look for pre-charged rechargeable batteries. This means you will be able to use them straight from the pack, without having to charge them first. You can also save time and money by buying your AAA rechargeable batteries complete with a charger, so you don't need to root around looking for your old one. A new charger will guarantee the fastest charge and extend the life of your batteries.
AAA rechargeable battery brands
All the major battery manufacturers produce these handy batteries, including Energiser, Panasonic and Duracell AAA rechargeable batteries. Lesser known brands, such as Lloydtron and Uniross are also popular, delivering a similar performance for less.
