I recently learned that it was possible to not only to test old alkaline batteries to see if they are still usable. With the right type of charger you can bring dead batteries back to life and actually recharge alkaline batteries.
To be quite honest, I was blown away. This could potentially save you a lot of money over a year and in an emergency give you the power you may need to power a radio and flashlights.
Having batteries available if you have kids will make their lives a little easier as a simple battery could power a few LED’s to give them light in the dark or even power an iPod to make things easier for them. If you find this useful please like, comment and share this on Facebook:
