Unboxing: eneloops Are Awesome!

eneloopsThe results are in. If you want some decent rechargeable batteries, Sanyo’s eneloops are the way to go. We do a lot of Flipvideoing and lately have been doing some extensive audio interviews, so it came down to purchasing a gazillion batteries from our local dollar store or finding some decent rechargeables that would last more than 12 hours.

That being said, on a budget less than $39.95 we had our choice of Sony or the eneloops.

USBCell Rechargeable Batteries

We recently stated that Bluetooth is our new BFF, thanks to its numerous and revolutionary uses. Well now we have a second BFF, for pretty much the same reasons: the USB port. There seems to be no end to the (sometimes wacky) uses for this under-appreciated power source, from thumb drives to heating up gloves. And now comes USBCell, rechargeable batteries from Moixa. Just flip down the battery’s cap, plug into a USB port, and you’re instantly recharging. Easy and portable, no wires or cables, perfect for travelers. Currently, USBCell is only available in AA cell, with 9-Volt and (love this) cell phone batteries coming soon. A 2-pack of AA is available for just under $22 USD plus free shipping.
