Rechargeable batteries offer many advantages over single-use versions, but often come at a slightly higher price. So, what are the benefits of rechargeable batteries? Maplin are here to help you learn more!

Environmentally friendly

Looking to reduce your carbon footprint? Rechargeable batteries are a simple and convenient way to start. Since they can be used and re-used hundreds or even thousands of times, they help to cut the number of single-use batteries which get thrown away. Plus, many rechargeable batteries are partially made from recycled materials, making them the eco-friendly choice.

Money saving

It’s not just the planet you’ll be helping, but also your wallet! Rechargeable batteries can be used over and over again, so you won’t be forking out on new batteries every time your gadgets and devices run out of juice. If you look after them properly, rechargeable batteries will save you money in the long run!

Always have a battery spare

By investing in multiple rechargeable batteries, you can always keep a spare set charged up and ready to go! No more waiting around for your batteries to recharge – simply swap them over and keep using your favourite gadgets for longer.
