Despite the restriction of mercury batteries since 1992, NEA still recommends rechargeable batteries to reduce e-waste and pollution from incinerating them.
Panasonic Eneloop (previously Sanyo) is a popular brand when it comes to rechargeable batteries due to their ability to retain about 85% of their charge for a year after charging.
Eneloop batteries, however, are pricey due to their unqiue technology and they usually cost between $12 – $20 for a pack of 4 x AA here in Singapore.
That’s not the case now since you can pick up 2 packs of 4 x AA (2,000mAh) + 1 pack of 4 x AAA (800mAh) Eneloop rechargeable batteries for just $19.90 on Qoo10! The offer further comes with free shipping via Singpost normal mail.
