The Low Self Discharge Nickel Metal Hydride chemistry is a relatively new battery chemistry that is superior from a technical and an environmental perspective. These batteries will serve you better than alkaline batteries (the common household battery). Further, when we receive them, we can revitalize them with our specialized infrastructure hundreds of times, vastly decreasing the quantity of materials that need to be mined, reformed, and eventually recycled, and all of the associated environmental costs in doing so.
The added expense to us of using this superior technology is worth it. We believe we can transform the battery industry from a very wasteful, polluting one into a closed, zero-waste industry. All you have to do is make sure that your used batteries make it in the earthCell mailer and get back to us. We'll take it from there!
