With a lot of kids toys needing batteries it was a choice of do we buy heaps of cheaper batteries or do I spend the extra money in the beginning and just recharge the batteries as needed. At first it was easier to buy the disposable batteries but then when you are buying every few days it adds up to a lot.
First couldn't find rechargeable batteries in the supermarkets but when I did find some there was a bit of a selection so thought that the pre charged ones would be better as boys have no patience for waiting till the batteries are charged. Another factor was how many times it can be recharged, not sure how big a pile of 1 500 batteries would be but it would be a lot more than I would be happy to just throw away.
As with any batteries it does come in various sizes, most toys use AA or AAA and I have had to get both. Some toys drain the batteries a lot faster so it is good that I can just put them on charge as often as needed.
I would recommend these batteries to anyone who needs a lot of batteries and don't want to use the disposable batteries and as an extra you can use them immediately.
