Pull STORING / Battery

Pull STORING
Pull STORING

AAA and AA batteries have always been a popular voltage generator. However, waste batteries containing mercury is extremely harmful to the environment. Pull STORING is designed to contain Thin-film Photovoltaic matter wrapped in AA and AAA batteries. When the batteries show red due to lack of charge, the photovoltaic matter is then able to be pulled out and used to recharge the battery. When recharging is completed the battery will then show green and the matter can then be wrapped back into the battery. Therefore making the battery usable again.
