For the numerous users of AA, AAA, C,D and 9V batteries there is now a small "revolution". Until now they had to decide: Do I want to use the cheap and universal alkaline batteries, which I can store for a very long time, but for high drain applications such as digital cameras and toys are a quite expensive solution? Or do I want to use rechargeable batteries, which I can recharge many hundreds of times, which will allow much lower operating costs? But the problem is that they will discharge quickly, even when not being used. With the brand new maxE from ANSMANN you will have the best of both technologies; High capacity rechargeable cells so economical; highest drain capability for a perfect use with power hungry applications; but with very low self-discharge to give a very long storage time. This new technology is the perfect energy source for all devices, from remote-controls to digital cameras. These batteries will be delivered fully-charged and you do not need any special chargers. MaxE batteries will be the optimum alternative for primary cells and as far as the environment and operation costs are concerned - the perfect solution!
