Geek Gift Ideas – Dec 7 (USB Rechargeable Batteries)

USBCell - USB Rechargeable BatteryWith the advent of the Universal Serial Bus (USB) manufacturers have been creating everything but the kitchen sink that has the capability of plugging into a USB port. When I saw this one though, I just had to include it in my Geek Gift Ideas series. Rechargeable batteries? Useful… cool. Rechargeable batteries that get their newfound juice from a USB port? Awesome!

This NiMH AA cell can be used like a normal battery and can be recharged simply by plugging into a USB port. With over 15 billion Alkaline batteries made and thrown away each year – wasting resources, C02 and creating toxic Landfill – USBCELL offers a eco-friendly alternative as can be re-used hundreds of times as no charge adaptor or cable is needed, saving you money, hassle and waste.

The cost for a 2 cell pack is 10.99 euros which is currently around $16.00 US. Click here to get the latest conversion.
