USB AA batteries finally make it to the U.S.
Three and a half months ago, we heard that a British company known as USBCell had launched a type of AA battery that could be plugged into a USB port to recharge. However, the battery was only available in the U.K., and potential U.S. customers could do no more than register their interest on the company's website. Well, the folks at ThinkGeek have received stock of USBCell batteries, and U.S. customers can now order them for $19.95 a pair. While that price is high, the batteries cost £12.99 ($25.25) a pair to order from the USBCell website, so it's actually a relative bargain. Thanks to Gizmodo for the tip.
