  • The advantage of using USBCell batteries is that you don’t need a separate charger to charge them. You can also recharge them over and over, which will save you money over buying non-rechargeable AA Alkaline batteries. A disadvantage is the price: $20 for two cells. Another disadvantage is that to charge these batteries, you need open powered USB ports. The ports must be powered in order to recharge the batteries. For example, USB ports built into a keyboard are probably not powered and will not charge the USBCells. If you have a device that uses 4 batteries and you need to charge them all at once, you will need 4 open USB ports. I don’t know about you, but I have 3 USB ports on the back of my iMac and a 7 port powered hub. Guess what? ALL of my ports are full. If I need to charge 4 USBCells at one time, I would need to unplug 4 devices, or daisy chain another powered hub into my system. That makes me wonder just how convenient these batteries truly are when compared to using higher capacity non-USB charging NiMH cells. USBCells have a fun novelty appeal going for them and they do work as advertised. But for your money, I think you are better off going with regular NiMH’s and a regular charger.

    Today an estimated 15 billion batteries are unnecessarily discarded each year, in part because traditional batteries are not capable of keeping up with the power demands of modern technology. These discarded batteries waste precious resources and in landfills that leeches into groundwater and pollutes our waterways and drinking supply. Not only are USBCELL rechargeable batteries eco-friendly, but they also are much more cost-effective and prevent the need to constantly remember to purchase new batteries.

The batteries are nickel metal hydride, like most rechargeable batteries, but their capacity is a relatively weak 1300mAH. Most rechargeable batteries I have here are 2000mAh or higher. Still, if you have a low power gadget that you really don’t want to be without, switching to USBCELL batteries could be a convenient way of saving yourself if you forget your battery charger or can’t find a 24 hour drugstore in the area.
