USBCell USB Rechargeable Batteries

I love rechargeable batteries.  So much better than having to constantly buy batteries only to throw them away after a short time.  Not to mention, rechargeable batteries are better for our environment.

With that said, I don’t typically get excited about rechargeable batteries unless maybe it is a solar charger or a smart charger.  So why are the USBCell rechargeable batteries so exciting?  Because you don’t need to carry around a clunky charger or even need a wall outlet at all.  The cap of the battery pops off and reveals a USB port so you can recharge off of any USB port.  They aren’t exactly cheap at  about $19  for two, but they can be recharged hundreds of times and are super convenient.

    These USBCell batteries, as well as other small, dry-cell rechargeable batteries can be recycled when they eventually wear out. Even though it’s rechargeable over and over again (average up to 1,000 times), the lifespan is usually between 2-5 years (depending on frequency of use, properly handling). Eventually even rechargeable batteries wear out and can’t hold a proper charge. Unlike alkaline batteries, rechargeable kind can be recycled and there’s a free and easy program available. provides convenient retail and community drop-off locations. Search locations by zip code. The program is funded by the rechargeable battery industry. Everything gets melted down, reuseable metals extracted for use in new products. Nothing goes into the landfill.
