What could be more convenient than an AA battery that you could recharge anywhere, anytime?

The USBCell, from British innovator Moxia Energy Ltd., is a direct replacement for a regular battery of that size in any application. The difference is, it has it’s own recharger built in. Just flip the green cap that forms the battery’s positive terminal to reveal a standard USB connector. Plug into any powered USB socket to recharge.


Just remember… If you recharge your USBCells on a laptop or other portable device, you’re draining its batteries to feel the cells. You don’t get nothin’ for nothin’!

Moxia observes…

In the UK, 680 million batteries are bought each year. The average household uses 21 batteries per year. This creates an estimated 19,000 tonnes of general purpose batteries waste alone, of which less than,1000 tonnes are recycled. …

USBCELL is the ultimate eco-friendly battery. It is tested up to 500 charge cycles to guarantee optimum reusable performance.

USBCells are available in AAA, C, D, 9 volt and cell phone battery formats, as well. They can be ordered directly from the manufacturer’s Web site.
