Many Australians already use rechargeable batteries on some items, simply because that’s what is included with those products. Cell phones, for example, include a rechargeable battery. In most cases, digital cameras also come with rechargeable batteries. By using these types of batteries on these products, the environment benefits and so does your wallet.
But what would the effect be if you switched to rechargeable batteries for everything that takes power?
ou might be surprised to learn exactly how much you have the potential to save by switching disposable batteries of all sizes, including those for your remote control, electronic toys, flashlights, and more. Not only that, but without disposing of all those used-up batteries, we recharge and reuse the same ones, which is beneficial to the environment. When they no longer take a charge, rechargeable batteries can be recycled for free.
