For longer than we can remember, it’s a big NO NO to try and recharge disposable batteries.  Now, thanks to the Second Wind Alkaline Charger we can now forget everything we’ve learned, at least when it comes to Duracell batteries and those alike.

The SecondWind charger is specifically designed to recharge virtually any disposable AA or AAA alkaline battery.  Charging takes less than 90-minutes and they say the process is very safe, causing no leaks, heat or safety hazards that have long been associated with charging the one time use batteries.  The SecondWind is capable of charging up to 4 batteries simultaneously and you can mix and match brands and sizes without any repercussions.

For piece of mind, the SecondWind charger has passed ENERGY STAR, ETL (Canada and US), RoHS, FCC, and CE certifications.  It has also been tested in temperatures from -20 to 60 degrees celsius, and substantial vibration.

You can buy the SecondWind for $59.99.

Save your money.
