    Do you re-charge your "AA's? Or buy non-rechargable ones? Both ways suck. I can never rely on the effectiveness of the newly charged battery and always end up buying non-rechargable ones anyway. Both loose power quickly and end up as poison in a landfill. Consumerism and waste. Same scheme with printer ink and supplies.

    There's gotta be a better alternative.icon_evil.gif

    It depends on what you use the batteries for. I hardly ever use AAs or AAAs. Most of my battery powered devices (cell phone, iPod, etc.) are rechargeable by themselves. Have you ever looked into recycling your batteries?

    I just use my ZPM.

    What are YOU using that requires changing these "batteries" you speak of?

    The only way to stop "consumerism and waste" is to STOP consuming (and therefore wasting). Any other solution, no matter how technologically advanced, will lead to more "consumerism and waste".

    Stop using them. Throw away any gadget that requires them, then go without. You'll save the environment, and you'll be like Buddha.

    No, actually, Mother Nature's energy isn't in the form of oil. That's man's energy, and it's killing Mother Nature.

    Mother Nature has two sources of energy: one internal and one external. The internal is Earth's molten core, and the external is from the sun.

    Eneloop & similar - low self discharge AA & AAA

    & all my batteries are recycled in the end (when they stop working)

    All batteries have a useful service life, while you can always recycle there will never be a perfect battery that will last a lifetime.

    The Stargate reference has the right idea. If batteries were far more efficient it would eliminate such things as transmission lines... distribution of power could be done radically different. And, perhaps solar then becomes an effective and slow way to charge a battery. Better batteries is a great idea... and a long term one.
