Here is a better way to safely and effectively recharge disposable "non" rechargeable
batteries. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Battery Xtender Lives Up to Its Claims
as the First Safe and Effective Alkaline Battery Recharger
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – February 14, 2006 - Forget what you’ve been told about disposable
batteries not being rechargeable. The Battery Xtender can safely and
effectively recharge alkaline batteries of all sizes, saving consumers money and
sparing our environment from potentially hazardous waste.
Traditional alkaline batteries, first introduced in the 1950’s, have been a reliable
source of portable power for years. Familiar and dependable, they generally have a
finite shelf life and are discarded when their “juice” runs out. And so the costly cycle of battery waste continues … that is, until now.
After fifteen years of testing and refinement, the Battery Xtender has arrived. Used as
directed, this device can simultaneously recharge sizes AA, AAA, C, and D of 1.2
– 1.5 volt disposable alkaline batteries, extending their useful life up to ten
times or more. The Battery Xtender is also capable of recharging other types of
battery chemistries, including Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH), Nickel Cadmium
(NiCad), Zinc Carbon, Titanium and Rechargeable Alkaline Manganese (RAM).
The Battery Xtender is certainly not the first alkaline battery charger to hit the
market in recent years. Unfortunately, rechargers of the past not only failed to revive
battery power, they created a buildup of heat and gas which often caused
batteries to burst. The Battery Xtender accomplishes what other alkaline battery
rechargers could not: it successfully restores the voltage of common throwaway
batteries to near-new capacity, without any risk of harm to the user.
The Battery Xtender Uses Patented Technology to Recharge Alkaline Batteries
The innovativeness of the Battery Xtender lies in its precise control of the charging
process. Using a patented microprocessor technique called “Smart Charge”, it automatically adjusts the charging currents in proportion to the size of the battery being charged, and turns off when charging is complete. LED indicators located on the front of the device allow users to easily monitor the charging status. Unlike previous alkaline battery rechargers, the Battery Xtender is unconditionally safe. Since it features an automatic shutoff element, there is no danger of overcharging. The self-monitoring technology of this device ensures that there is no accumulation of gas, heat or pressure; in fact, batteries remain cool to the touch throughout the charging process. The key to recharging alkaline batteries with the Battery Xtender is that the batteries must not have been completely drained of their power in previous use. By following this simple rule of thumb, everyday disposable batteries can be recharged many times over. New Alkaline Battery Recharger is Cost-Effective and Convenient For consumers, the economic advantage of Battery Xtender is clear. Between power-hungry digital cameras, remote controls, portable media devices, toys, and other gadgets, Americans buy over $6.1 billion worth of replacement batteries each year. With the Battery Xtender, single-use batteries can be reused rather than thrown away. In terms of the money they save on replacement batteries, users can recoup the cost of this alkaline battery recharger in a very short amount of time. For the millions who depend on batteries from day to day, the convenience of the Battery Xtender is invaluable. Its simple, one-handed operation allows it to be used by people of all ages, including children. Weighing a mere 14.2 ounces, the device takes up a trivial amount of space and is small enough to travel with. At home, the Battery Xtender can be used to provide a ready power source for emergency flashlights, digital cameras, and children’s toys. Teenagers and college students can keep their portable music and media devices running without the hassle of buying replacement batteries. For institutions such as hospitals, having batteries in a high state of charge and readiness is critical for powering devices such as portable monitoring equipment. The Battery Xtender Addresses Ecological Concerns In addition to its practical benefits, the Battery Xtender promises to be a boon for the environment as well. Each year, billions of disposable alkaline batteries end up in landfills, releasing potentially toxic pollutants such as zinc oxide, manganese dioxide, and potassium hydroxide. Although some states require that batteries be recycled at an authorized facility, many more do not govern their disposal. By allowing consumers to reuse the alkaline batteries they would normally throw away, the Battery Xtender effectively reduces the burden of waste and contamination on our landfills. The Battery Xtender is a proven, patented product that puts to rest the myth that you cannot safely recharge alkaline batteries.
