UltraLast Green Rechargeable Batteries Now Shipping

July 22, 2009 by Jeff Shepard

UltraLast Batteries™ announced that its UltraLast Green™ rechargeable batteries are now shipping to retailers and e-tailers across the United States, Canada, and Latin America. UltraLast Batteries introduced the all-new Everyday Rechargeables™, batteries designed for use in everyday household items, and High-Power Rechargeables™, batteries for high-power consumption devices in January. These two battery lines, along with six chargers, are now available to consumers.

"We have had strong response to the UltraLast Green product line at every meeting," stated Nanci Bergman, VP of Sales for UltraLast Batteries. "We are excited to see more and more retailers adding UltraLast Green to their battery offerings."

"In the current economy, consumers are looking for value and savings at every turn. UltraLast Green Everyday Rechargeables can replace their household batteries in most every application without a trade off in performance, and eliminate the cost of constantly replacing batteries," stated Mark Dockser, Senior Vice President and General Manager of UltraLast Batteries. "Consumers with digital cameras, flashes, and electronic games already reach for rechargeable batteries. Our UltraLast Green High-Power Rechargeables line is perfect for them. With Everyday Rechargeables and High-Power Rechargeables, consumers now have a greener alternative to throw-away batteries – an easy way to reduce the billions of batteries disposed of each year."

UltraLast Green Rechargeables can be recharged as many as 500 times, or up to three years. In consumer and environmental terms, that means one rechargeable pack can keep as many as 1,000 disposable batteries out of landfills and a 4-pack can save consumers up to $100 or more per year.
