Hoo-Rayovac! Plastic-free batteries!

Finally! Today I found 4-packs of rechargeable AA batteries in all cardboard packaging! Not even a bit of plastic over the cutout window. It’s about time! Got them at WalMart, so they should be available everywhere. Supposed to be super long-lasting too.

Woohoo!  I'll have to look for those.  Rechargeable batteries are great in theory, but not working well for me these days.

Hi Eve! I am new to this website and so excited to be here! How did those batteries work out for you? I am drastically trying to reduce (and eventually eliminate) all disposable items in our house and have been searching for safe (and plastic-free) battery alternatives or rechargeable batteries that people recommend. I have heard that rechargeable batteries sometimes do not last as long as non-rechargeable batteries and was curious as to whether or not it would be worth the switch! Are you still using that same brand?
