Benefits of rechargeable batteries
Environmental impact: Single use batteries have significant impact on our environment. Heavy metals, destructive materials and other harmful chemicals integrated with inappropriate disposal batteries cause bad impact on our environment. But rechargeable batteries have very little impact on global warming, air pollution, air acidification and water pollution. So, we can say that rechargeable batteries are environmentally friendly.
