Sailors rely on batteries to power any number of gizmos, but in the case of disposable batteries, this reliance comes at a hefty cost to the consumer and to the environment. More Power 2U claims its new Battery Xtender safely and effectively recharges disposable alkaline, nickel metal hydride, nickel cadmium, zinc carbon, titanium, and rechargeable alkaline manganese batteries without creating a buildup of heat and gas, the common problem with other disposable-battery rechargers. The Battery Xtender works with AAA, AA, C, and D batteries; the company claims that its unit extends the life of a disposable battery by up to 10 times. $39.95, More Power 2U, LLC, 954-578-6909, www.batteryxtender.com
