1. Understanding Battery Voltages

    In general, when people are looking for batteries, they tend to pay more attention to the battery size such as AA, AAA, and so on. However, batteries can also be classified by voltage. If you haven’t noticed the voltage figures on a pack of batteries before, you won’t be familiar with the meaning of voltage and the difference between volts.

  7. Why Do We Need To Recycle Batteries

    Did you know; in the UK only 27% of all batteries purchased are actually recycled? It is also estimated that the average British household uses at least 10 batteries a year which roughly translates to 60,000 tonnes worth of batteries every year. 

    But what does all of this mean? Well, this means that tonnes of Co2 emissions could be avoided if more batteries were recycled. In fact, it is often cited that over 20,000 batteries unnecessarily fill up landfills in the UK alone. 

    Over the last decade or so, there has been a general push towards being more environmentally friendly. Underpinned by the UK government’s Green Deal which was established back in January 2013; more and more Britons have been making the extra effort to reduce their carbon footprint. And in the battery industry, there is no difference. 

    So whether you have
