Re: rechargeables no comparison to throw away alkalines

January 03, 2020 08:07PM
Hard to compare the high quality rechargables to throw-away alkalines. Eneloops can readily be had for about $2.60 each and last from 500-1000 charges, so even if they slightly underperform a throw away for their stored power, they still blow them away on long term stability, reliability and cost.

Cost per charge conservative at $2.60/ 500 = about a half cent per charge for cost of battery. A single AA Eneloop battery takes approximately .02 kw hour for a charge. Average cost for a kw in the US is 12 cents,so the electricity cost is very close to zero.

Since Eneloops store power reliably for ten years you can always carry extra charged cells for backup and not worry about them being flat when you need them. Did I say no leaks.. that's a big deal.
