Green Tip

Buy rechargeable batteries. They can be used for longer periods and will likely be less expensive than disposable batteries in the long run. When using rechargeable batteries, be sure to follow the instructions. Often it is suggested to charge the battery fully before use to avoid diminishing its lifetime.
