Lithium Batteries Now Available at Horizon Battery

March 6th, 2012

We’ve added several types of primary batteries to our arsenal of products. The Ansmann Extreme Lithium Batteries are sure to be a winner for those who are looking for high quality lithium batteries. These batteries last 7X longer than standard alkaline batteries and are much lighter.  Another benefit is that our lithium batteries have a shelf life of over 10 years.

Lest you forget, we still advocate the use of rechargeable batteries whenever possible.  Over time, a rechargeable battery will still be the best money saving (and planet-saving) investment you can make.

So, when should you use a high-capacity lithium battery? We recommend using them for outdoors devices  – particularly those exposed to low temperatures. The new Ansmann lithium batteries have a use range of -40°C and +60°C.   Therefore, the Lithium Battery is excellent adapted for outdoor use such as weather stations, thermometers, etc.

For those of you that are not able to remember to change your smoke detector batteries every six months, then consider a lithium battery.  Remember, we still recommend you check your batteries every six months and use a low-self discharge rechargeable battery like the Max-E batteries.

Whether to use a primary lithium battery versus a rechargeable battery will always come back to price, convenience, and conscience.  To buy a battery charger will always cost a little more up front, but in the long haul, you’ll save big time.

The new AnAnsmann Lithium Batteriessmann Extreme lithium batteries are available in AAA, AA and 9V. The AA lithium batteries are available in either a 2 pk or 4 pk blister.  9V’s are available in a 1-pkblister and the AAA’s are available in a 2-pk blister.

Finally, you’ll love the pricing.  For years, Energizer and Duracell have been charging outrageous amounts for lithium batteries.  For example, you’ll find Energizer AA’s going for around $6.25 for a two-pack.

We offer Ansmann lithium AA’s 2-pk  for only $4.99  Our 9V’s and AAA’s are also comparable in price – so be sure to check them out.

 

Church Batteries – A Rechargeable Solution

February 14th, 2012

With over 25,000 churches using our rechargeable systems, church batteries should be a no-brainer. The days of stockpiling huge amounts of disposable are over. With Ansmann and Horizon award wimming rechargeable systems, each church we convert saves money, time and the planet – each and every year.

Although we are encouraged to see mega-churches make the switch to rechargeable batteries, it is our goal to convert every church, large or small to Ansmann rechargeable batteries for church. An average size church can easily save their battery budget times five years. Depending upon how active your music ministry is and the amount of wireless mics, many churches easily spend over $500 in year in throw-away batteries.

It really doesn’t require much math to figure out how much you can save –when you consider that each rechargeable battery for church can be used up to 1000 times with the proper battery charger. Realistically, for most churches this means you don;t buy batteries for about 5 or 6 years.

If you’ve ever considered making the switch, why not talk to us? We have the technology and know-how to provide you with a customized rechargeable system to replace all those throw-away church batteries that are piling up in your sound room.

High Capacity Rechargeable Batteries Are Still Preferred For Professional Use

February 14th, 2012

While there has been an onslaught of low discharge rechargeable batteries on the market over the last several years, most professional users of rechargeables still prefer high capacity rechargeable batteries.

Why? Two reasons.

First, most professionals are using their rechargeable batteries on a daily basis, so the need for batteries that have a long shelf life is not necessary. Most pro-users choose a good reconditioning charger like the Energy 8 Plus or Energy 16 battery charger and leave the batteries on the charger until ready for use. This assures the batteries are fully charged for maximum usage. With a low self discharge battery, there is always guess work as to how much remaining capacity exist in the battery, even when using a battery capacity tester.

Secondly, the high capacity rechargeable battery is exactly that – a higher capacity. Most low discharge batteries do not match capacity of the high capacity batteries. So, when a photogragpher is shooting, he/she wants the maximum amount of run-time available, which a the low self discharge battery cannot provide.

However, where the low self discharge battery shines is for the more occasional user — such as family use with game controllers, digital cameras, wireless mouse and keyboards, etc. The low discharge battery is truly the battery of choice in these instances.

Still not sure what battery to use? Let us help you. We have a free report and evaluation service regarding rechargeable batteries which you can find here on our website.

The Ever, Never Changing World Of Rechargeable Batteries

January 13th, 2012

Rechargeable batteries have come a long way from the early days.

Well, maybe.

Sometimes, I wish the manufacturers had waited before introducing them. Without giving away my actual age, as a kid I can remember the first set of “rechargeables” that made it’s way to our home. They were made by General Electric and consisted of a rudimentary “cook your battery” battery charger and a set of Ni-Cad cells.

My parents – in good faith – tried them, and because of lousy performance, eventually gave up. The promise of “never buy batteries again” was soon laughable and this impression was compounded upon a huge base of consumers. This soon gave way to the tremendous growth of our throw-away battery mentality that persists to this day. And despite the efforts of the green people and blogs like this, we still fight the “do these things really work?” mentality when it comes to rechargeable batteries.

Yet, the fault lies clearly with manufacturers and marketers of batteries - both in the disposable, throw-away market and with those who produce rechargeable technology. While there are as many brands of batteries as there are breakfast cereals, very few companies take the time to educate the public on the effective use of rechargeables.

Why? Two reasons, actually three.

First, if you are a large battery company that sells billions of disposable batteries, why would you spend time and money teaching people to stop using them? It makes no economical sense. People buy stock in these public companies and the shareholders want profit, not prophets. Let’s face it, it takes a bit of “missionary” work to bring people around to a rechargeable mentality – and those who spend the time and resources are often labeled as “fringe” or affectionately – tree-huggers.

Personally, I’m not your typical “green” person. For me to make a switch to green technology, it has to make sense financially too. So, in all honesty, when I see a family, business, church, or school going through batteries like a kid in a candy store, I take it as a personal challenge to convert them over to rechargeables. I know that by switching to rechargeable technology they can save hundreds to thousands of dollars year after year.

And that leads me to the second reason why most battery companies do not take the time to educate: Their rechargeable technology isn’t where it should be. If a company was selling a rechargeable battery that could only be used 50 times, as a consumer, I’d have to consider the ROI (return on investment.) Is it worth it to switch? Why spend extra money upfront when I can buy a boatload of disposable batteries and achieve the same effect?

For a company or business to make a switch to rechargeables, we have to offer quality rechargeable battery chargers and quality rechargeable batteries. Ansmann batteries and chargers – while they cost a little bit more – make it worth the effort in the long run by providing high recycles and performance – in many – cases up to 1000 recharges. (see my previous blog – on refreshing battery chargers here) The majority of battery companies only offer cheap, minimum quality chargers and batteries that boasts of high-capacity but deliver much less over few recycles. So, as consumers continue to buy low quality chargers and batteries, they wind up perpetuating the “do these batteries really work?” mentality all over again — which then drives them back to disposables.

Finally, here’s the last reason why battery companies spend little time educating on rechargeable technology — and it’s really more of an excuse than a reason. Does the marketplace really want rechargeable technology? If you take a look at the products offered by the large battery companies, you’ll find very little in the way of high-tech battery chargers. They are typically low cost, and rudimentary in nature. The rationale is along this line of thought: “Let’s provide those consumers who want to try rechargeables just enough – at as little cost to them. Let them then determine if it’s worth the energy to stay with rechargeables.”

If I was not an informed consumer, and marched into the Radio Shack or Wal-mart, bought a cheap $10 charger and a $7 pack of rechargeables, I would soon forget about using them. It would not be worth the hassle. Or maybe I would fail to see how I could convert my whole household to rechargeables — and just use it for my Wii controllers. There is a rechargeable solution for just about every application but it just takes a little planning to do it right.

So, as the title of this article states: “The Ever, Never Changing World of Rechargeable Batteries” — has much changed?

Perhaps you’re reading this article and have yet to switch to rechargeables. Or you’ve tried them in the past and gave up. I encourage you to get my Free Report – “3 Things You Absolutely Need to Know About Rechargeable Batteries” by clicking here.

Or maybe I’m preaching to the choir and you figured out how to best use rechargeables. Share your experience with others.  Tweet it, FB it, or leave your comments.

Introducing babynightlights.net

January 4th, 2012

Well, sometimes you just don’t know. Actually the older I get, the less I seem to know. At least, that’s what my kids say.

Last month, we launched the Ansmann baby night lights product line and had such a terrific response, we went ahead and created a whole new website just to handle it. Appropriately named, www.babynightlights.net, our new website allows the baby night lights more room with larger pictures and descriptions, photo galleries etc.

We knew that placing it on our main site – horizonbattery.com- would be a bit out of our rechargeable battery “comfort zone” but even the response from our regular customers was strong. (I guess everyone has a baby or small child, or knows someone that does ….)

So, babynightlights.net is born – so to speak. Take some time to check it out – and keep us in mind for your next “baby giift”

Reasons Why It’s A Good Idea To Employ A Reconditioning Charger

December 23rd, 2011

As increasing numbers of families make the move to re-chargeable batteries, the call for excellent battery chargers will get more significant. What is the point of employing re-chargeable batteries in the event that you’re not able to accomplish optimum recycles from them? Let’s take into account, the true reason for utilizing rechargeable batteries to start with is to try to lower your expenses and save the earth from the extreme wastefulness of use-and-throw batteries.

So, how do you get the most from your nimh rechargeable batteries? I advise having a battery charger which will refresh or recondition the batteries. Before moving forward, I’ve already presumed you have chosen a high-quality, high-capacity re-chargeable battery like the Ansmann type. And, before I explore things to look for in a charger that reconditions, allow me to discuss what it’s not.

There are several battery chargers that offer a “discharge” process, which merely discharges the cell right down to a base level – generally around 1.0 Volts. This discharge concept was related to the use of Nickel Cadmium batteries and was fairly good at preventing “memory effect.” After discharging the cell, the battery would then be recharged back up to full charge. Despite the fact that sounds like an acceptable, clear-cut tactic, just discharging a battery does almost nothing in order to keep the chemistry with the nimh cell well balanced. As the nimh battery ages, it could develop “crystalline” creation inside of the cell. Even though this does not result in memory effect as seen using the older Ni-cad batteries, it will minimize what number of recycles you can acheive at maximum capacity. A basic discharging of the cell does not address this event.

To stop or diminsh crystalline formation in the cell, refreshing or reconditioning of the cell is well-advised. So what does a refresh cycle involve? With Ansmann energy series battery chargers, the Ansmann technical engineers have designed a proprietary algorithim of charge and discharge cycles at numerous voltage values. When the cell is in need of refresh, this circuit occurs automatically and is undertaken on the cell right before recharging. By applying this type of charging process, you will notice a boost in power with your rechargeables as well as more life. Practically speaking, our assessment of this benefit, as well as those of our clients gives roughly a 20%-25% amplified life span of your cells. By way of illustration, let’s presume for your usage the batteries could in theory be recycled one thousand times. This would be under ideal conditions, with the use of a top-quality battery charger that refreshes the cells. Without the refresh option, your usage of the batteries could decrease down to seven hundred and fifty cycles instead. So, as an example, you use your batteries, in a wireless microphone, 2 times weekly. An addtional two hundred and fifty charge cycles might mean another 2-3 years of use before being forced to remove and replace them. That is a substantial savings – and really worth the few additional bucks you would spend choosing a battery charger that can refresh your batteries.

We saw this one coming  a long ways off.

There have been so many iphone battery cases claiming “max power” — but trying to squeeze too much juice into a slimline battery case is asking for trouble. This will certainly not be the last recall.

However, the Ansmann iphone battery case for iPhone 3G/S and 4/4S is completely safe and designed for long life without excessive heat build-up or fire hazard.

Stick to a reasonably-priced, reputable product line. Ansmann is a leading expert in the field of mobile energy – including iPhone battery cases.

Choose The Right Batteries And Minimize The Effect Of Batteries On The Environment

October 28th, 2011

Although many electrical items these days feature inbuilt rechargeable lithium batteries, many of the items we use such as flashlights still need to use standard 9v batteries.

Children’s toys in particular seem to go through an alarming volume of batteries. There is no excuse these days.  However, having said that for not using 9v rechargeable batteries. Not only does it make sense from a financial standpoint but also from an environmental one.

It normally requires a large quantity of energy to manufacture batteries in large volumes, meaning the burning of fossil fuels. The burning of such fuels is not only using a limited resource but also widely considered by scientists to produce excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which is considered to cause a greenhouse effect main to global warming over and above the natural global warming of the world.

Although rechargeable batteries can be recharged many instances there comes a point when they will no longer hold a charge, so it’s worthwhile expending in the better made brands of rechargeable batteries such as Ansmann rechargeable batteries. As even rechargeable batteries have an environmental impact. All rechargeable batteries comprise rare earth metals which need to be mined meaning the  converting of more hydrocarbons into gas in the form of carbon dioxide and being pumped into the atmosphere possessing a detrimental effect on the environment.

Also the better made brands of batteries charge up quicker and hold their charge far longer than inferior brands. Buying a premium brand such as Ansmann cuts down on the quantity of energy needed and makes further environmental perception and well as financial perception by cutting down the cost of your domestic electricity expenses.

To really get the most out of your batteries you really should always aim to use them as soon as doable after charging as all batteries no subject how good lose a certain quantity of charge over time. You really should also buy a good charger as a good charger will monitor the charging of the individual cells placed on charge to prevent overcharging. A Microprocessor managed charger is a very good investment to guarantee that your batteries are charging as efficiently and safely as feasible.

When your batteries have reached the end of their current lifespan you should consider recycling them as the rare earth metals contained in rechargeable batteries such as lithium and indium are very much in demand. You are also helping the planet by reducing down on the sum of mining which has to be done to retrieve these rare metals. There are specialist recycling vegetation who’s sole reason to exist is to specialise in retrieving these rare earth metals from batteries and other electric appliances.

If you do go through a lot of batteries then buying the premium brands such as Ansmann makes a lot of sense. Batteries can become expensive when you throw them away in high volume and poor chargers and rechargeable batteries will add to your electricity payments over time. finding out to properly care for you batteries as well as getting the appropriate equipment will have a important improvement on their lifespan.
