Product Description

How to save money on batteries and help protect the environment. Millions of batteries are thrown away each year even when they still have lots of useful life left in them. Why? Because there's been no convenient way to test them before throwing them out. But now, BatRecycle Smart Battery Disposal makes it a breeze. It displays instantaneous results for GOOD, PASS and FAIL, allowing you to put only 'dead' batteries in its convenient disposal bin. All other batteries can be kept for re-use. The bin is big enough to hold batteries from an average household's yearly use. When full, you simply take it to your nearest battery recycling collection point, empty it for free, and take it home again. The result? You save money and the environment benefits too. BatRecycle Smart Battery Disposal helps you make more efficient use of batteries and at the same time you ensure they go only for approved recycling rather than creating long-term contamination in landfill sites. BatRecycle Smart Battery Disposal will make you feel very pleased with yourself - in your pocket, in your home and in your world.

This is a well- thought-out product but not a perfectly well thought out product. It has slots for AAA, AA, C AND D batteries, all the common cylindrical ones, to be tested before recycling. Each slot is tight and it is something of a struggle to get some in. There are 4 buttons to be pressed to test the batteries. Each is labelled with the battery type in capitals raised from the plastic base. They are difficult to see in some lights. Why could it not have been wired so that one button tested any battery? For a few pence more the labelling of the buttons could have been clearer.

When you test a battery a line of LEDs from red through amber to green tells you whether to ditch it or keep it for a while longer. This function seems to work quite well.

There is no facility to test flat 9v batteries (PP3s) - a trick missed I think. Do I keep a separate battery tester just for these?

It's a plastic pot with a (limited) battery tester in the lid. I already had a battery tester (which told me that 4 Duracell AAs were dead when this product said there was life in them yet. I've also got loads of plastic pots. Did I need this? No. Do I like it? Yes, with the above gripes.

I always struggled with getting rid of used batteries, I often tried to chuck them in the bin, and my wife would get cross with me, I would then try and leave them in a drawer but they will get mixed with new batteries and I would get confused and upset. This container for battery recycling is absolutely brilliant, now I have a clear place where to put used batteries, and will only need to take them to a public recycling point 1-2 times a year. I have had it for a month and it's already saved me the value of its cost, as I found out some batteries I was about to throw away were still full or half full so I kept them. The only reason I don't give it 5 start is that it can only check 4 types of batteries, which are the most common batteries used, it would have been perfect if it could also check the status of other types of batteries like the rectangular battery or the tiny round ones you get in wrist watches and small toys.

It's a very simple & convenient solution to an awkward problem. It beats my previous methods of sticking old batteries in a plastic bag, which I could never find when I wanted it!

Only downside, it's a bit pricey

A really neat product, very convenient way of storing those old batteries, instead of a plastic tub on the kitchen table! The tester in the lid is a good feature, I found three batteries in my pile which still had charge left in them. Well made and tough. Deducting one star only because I think it's a tad too expensive - but it's a once off purchase so not a big del.

This is great for testing those batteries that you are not quite sure about. Then very handy for storing the spent ones until you can take them for recycling. Glad I bought it.

I always had batteries lying around and never knew if they were used or not. Now with this unit, I quickly check and if used, into the unit it goes. Simple idea but dead handy to have around.
