Home Forums Re: Are AA/AAA’s ever better than wired devices?


The difference is the width of your concern.

If you are interested in the ‘global’ impact, then, yes battery production is an energy pit.

Myself, I’m more concerned with my own survival. Since battery devices hit my pocket less than wired devices, I go battery. BUT, watch out for corded recharge stations, the ‘vampire’ electrical costs can be HUGE!!!
