With the sheer number of wireless devices in my house, rechargeable batteries are a godsend. Unfortunately, they’re also rather expensive. Wouldn’t it be great if you could just take those old, cheap batteries and stick them in a charger? Apparently with this new ReZAP charger, you can.
According to the company, you can take any regular battery and with this magic device, recharge it up to 10 times. This is done by using intelligent microprocessors and software to regulate the charging process. It can detect what type of battery has been inserted (AA, AAA, AAAA, C, D or 9-volt) and automatically determine the right charging algorithm to give it a fresh charge. If you’re wanting to get the most out of your cheap batteries, then this $60 gadget might suit you when it comes out next month. However, if the quality of the product is anything like the company’s website, I’ll definitely pass.
