New Power Cells Replace Batteries -(reprint)
Ever since going digital, it seems that we use a ton of AA batteries. We use them in our radio slaves and in our four Canon flashes, so you can imagine the number of batteries we would go through in a week.
There is a company called Energy Village located in Muskegon, Michigan that has come up with a environmentally safe alternative power cell. They look and perform just like AA (or 9 volt, if you prefer) batteries but the differrence is that when they die, you just pop them in the supplied charger and in two hours they are fully charged and good to go.
You can read more about them on their corporate website or you can order them by calling customer service at Allied Photo and Imaging Lab in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
