"To activate the battery you only have to submerge it for five or ten minutes in the water to make the positive and negative ions mix," explained one of the three Swiss shareholders of the brand that distributes the battery, Olivier Chauffat.
This alternative to alkaline batteries is made from polypropylene, a plastic with a recycling rate of 85%, compared to 50% for conventional batteries, and is light in weight (12? 13 grams).
This ecological battery, unlike conventional batteries that begin to lose their charge when they leave the factory, lacks voltage and does not emit electricity before being activated, so it can be stored indefinitely, according to its manufacturers.
These batteries can be used in devices with a medium - low energy consumption such as radio - clocks, walkie - talkies, flashlights with LED light or in a remote control where they have an approximate life of two years, somewhat less than an alkaline battery.
