As a gadget geek, I don’t have much trouble spending my hard earned money on numerous gadgets but when it comes to buying batteries, I turn into a cheap-ass. There are lots of rechargeable battery options but I especially like the USBCell Batteries.
You don’t need to worry about bulky chargers or if you travel a lot, you don’t have to worry about dealing with different electric outlets in European and Asian countries because the USBCell Batteries can be recharged using a standard USB port on your computer, laptop, or even an Xbox.
The batteries come in AA size and have a flipable top to reveal the connector. Simply plug them into a USB port and you’re on your way to a full charge; to make things easier, there is a yellow indicator light showing charge status. The USBCell rechargeable batteries are available at firebox.com for £11.99 for two or £21.49 for four.

I used to own a couple of these. Terrible battery life, don’t work as a usb key and take forever to charge. Pointless.
Thanks for the info Don.
They are a fairly new product..
Of course they are not going to work very well Just wait for newer versions or different producers
I bought two of these for use in an xbox 360 controller, and after a week they wouldnt hold a charge at all. Waste of money.
Got some of these a while back. One immediately leaked battery acid all over my laptop, and the other one corroded so quickly, I hardly used it.
Are working OK but…not awesome 😛 they take a lot of time to charge and the life is short
Yeah I was going to get one but I have heard nothing but bad things. Hopefully it won’t be long until they come out with newer versions
