Why Ready to Use (R2U) Battery?
These ready to Use NiMH Battery is a combination of a rechargeable and a disposable battery, the next evolutionary step for batteries into the 21st century.
Like a disposable battery.
Because the R2U battery has a very low self-discharge, the R2U battery can be shipped in a charged state. The R2U loses its charge very slowly. This means you are purchasing a charged battery, which can be used immediately.
What makes the R2U Battery unique?
The key-advantage of the R2U Battery compared to usual rechargeable batteries is its extremely low self-discharge. Once charged, the battery keeps its charge even if you store it for 12 or 24 months. (85 percent of the charge after 12 months, 70 percent after 24 months). For a rechargeable battery, this is a revolutionary advantage. No more worries about the state of charge of your battery. Just, charge them and keep them. Even after months, you will still have an almost full battery.
1000 times rechargeable
In contrast to a disposable battery, the R2U Battery can be charged 1000 times. This not only saves the environment, but also your purse. Thus, one R2U Battery saves the waste of 999 disposable batteries.
But also financially the R2U battery has benefits. Even if you consider the slightly higher cost of the R2U battery compared to a disposable battery and add the cost for the charger and the energy consumed by the charger, the investment for one R2U battery savings after a few charging cycles.
Imagine how much money you have put out for batteries in your life. Now there is an end to this spending.
