Are battery chargers worth it?

Hey seedly users, just wanna ask, are battery chargers worth it or is buying batteries much more worth it in the long run? It is definitely more environmentally friendly but is it friendly to my wallet?

Hey there,

I don't use rechargeable batteries these days but I used to own them, partly because rechargeable batteries in the past don't hold their charge as well. However from what I've read, rechargeable batteries can hold their charge much better these days and you can recharge them for many more times.

Therefore, in today's context, it might make more sense to use rechargeable batteries. However, there're some instances where disposable batteries could be better such as for low-power (draws low current) devices such as wall clocks, bike lights, remote controls and calculators.

Hope it helps!

I would think it depends on how often do you use the batteries and for what devices are you using it for. If you need to change batteries quite often then probably rechargeable batteries would be a better choice and getting a battery charger would be worth it in the long run.

However, if you are just using the batteries for devices that are in power then a simple battery from a value dollar shop would do the trick as it is cheap and serves its purpose. Moreover, some batteries can't be kept long and if you don't change them frequently, it might spoil.
