    I think some of us should think of manufacturing the old spring wound watches, time pieces and clocks again. This will reduce the use of batteries to an extent and also provide that antique look.

    When you buy new batteries in the Philippines , and you want to leave your old and used ones where you buy the new ones , they don't accept the old ones , because the shop can't bring them to a recyle collecting place because yhey don't have them here

    We need to ban single use batteries right now. We should all use rechargeable batteries for the moment until technology arrives with something better.

    Everyone has to have a engineer & a good bloody electrician & set a windmill with direct power boosts homes, vehicles & accessories or actually batteries are bad ideas. Just imagine a Mercedes, Bentley, BMW etc having the latest windmills won't be surprised if it will be set in their wheels??? Wow I taught out of the box... Sorry peeps if I got on the wrong side.. Cheers now 😎👍

    My city uses 99.99% wind/hydro electric power. It would cost me .001 cents to fill up a battery. This post is only true for non-rechargeable batteries in communities with non-renewable energy. Batteries are a necessity of modern life. The key is to do them properly.

    Ok that is so sad. I almost use the most less amount of batteries in my whole life. I think twice before I throw them out. But still every equipment I work with, works with these AA and AAAA batteries. So it looks like the whole system is not ready to change this right now.

    I put used batteries into a 2l Coca-Cola bottle, and leave it there. Anyone has any idea how to deal with it? Reall.
