25 Wise Buys for Your Home That Take Care of Your Savings

Rechargeable Batteries

Did your Roku controller run out of juice? Before you dash out to buy disposable batteries, consider the alternative. Rechargeable batteries have come a long way in terms of capacity and price. Although there is still the upfront investment, research shows they’re a better value overall, according to the technology review website The Wirecutter.

A Wirecutter study showed that after nine months on the shelf, all the tested rechargeable batteries (LSD and Eneloop) had more energy left in them than any disposable brand-new AA battery. Your first set of AA batteries will also pay for themselves after a few recharge cycles when compared to most brand-name disposable batteries.

Be sure to pick up a charger for continued use, which typically ranges from anywhere between $12.99 to $62.99. You can buy a pack of Panasonic Eneloop rechargeable batteries on Amazon for $12.99.
