USBCell – standard batteries that recharge via USB
Moixa Energy has launched the USBCell – a rechargeable battery can charge straight from any USB port.
USBCell can be used exactly like a normal battery – initially it’s available as an AA battery, with a full range of sizes to follow. Using one is simple – just pop the lid to reveal a built in connector and charger. Then plug it into any powered USB port on your desktop, laptop, keyboard or games console, to charge. It’s also beneficial to the environment – offering a simple way to recharge a battery, without the need for additional chargers and cables – which could reduce the consumption of single-use batteries.
The USBCell can be purchased online for £12.99 (including delivery) for a packet containing two AA batteries.
