Batteries are becoming a huge problem, not just in South Africa, but around the world. Single-use batteries are discarded in their millions every year around South Africa, most of which end up in landfills. In addition to this, numerous unwanted chemicals find their way into the surrounding environment as a result of not being disposed of correctly. While rechargeable batteries have been around for some time, it hasn’t been a convenient replacement for the average user due to the inconvenience and the requirement of a Ni-MH charging dock. Charged Power, one of the leading renewable energy solutions companies, has announced the launch of Infinite Power, the first micro-USB rechargeable AA and AA batteries in South Africa.
Charged Power, known for disrupting the portable power bank market in recent years, has extended its portfolio to a wider range of products for the consumer market.
The convenience of a rechargeable battery by means of a micro-USB port lends itself to ease of use for the average customer. With USB cables being ubiquitous for most modern households, there aren’t any additional requirements for daily use. While the Ni-MH charging dock always requires access to a wall plug, the switch to USB cables makes charging available anywhere, from the home to the office, and even on the go in your car.
The Infinite Power AA and AAA batteries aren’t too different from the conventional counterparts, with the sleek design incorporating the micro-USB port directly into the body. This makes the batteries an easy replacement to the standard batteries we use in abundance around the household and office.
Included in the contents is a two-headed micro-USB cable, which allows users to easily recharge two batteries at any time, from a single port.
As one member of the CHJGD design team stated: “With Christmas coming up, we wanted to create something sleek for our customers to prevent the excessive battery waste that comes with buying electronics at this time of year and also to save them money.”
Charged Power has been on the forefront when it comes to driving the reduction of the human carbon footprint in past years, with a portfolio that includes a solar-powered offering and increasingly efficient products across the various ranges. The company has received top accolades across the globe from top technology publications and news outlets since its conception in 2015.
The Infinite Power batteries continue its position to decrease the average carbon footprint, with an aim to reduce environmental pollution. These batteries give consumers peace of mind with an environmentally conscious choice over alternative single-use options.
In addition to the Infinite Power batteries, Charged Power has a portfolio consisting of the world’s smallest 10,000mAh and retro Kaset power banks, with the range of products still ranking in the top 10 in Europe by leading technology firms. Thanks to these achievements, the collection of products have been a mainstay in the best-seller listings across North America and Europe, which has now also landed in South Africa ahead of the festive season.
With the increased need for batteries approaching over the holidays, Infinite Power is set to join its predecessors as the smart power replacement of choice.
