Be Wise with Batteries

"Did you know that it takes 50 times more energy to make a battery than the energy it provides? Use rechargeable batteries when possible."

I've found that Uniross Ultra batteries hold their charge better than other batteries I've tried, so are good for things like cameras.  The only trouble is that after buying a pack in Homebase two years ago, I haven't seen them in the shops again, but have found them available on-line.

  1. That's useful to know! We've been finding our rechargeable batteries are conking out really quickly - though we think the charger isn't working as well as it should be (it's probably over 10 years old now)...
