Thanks for the comment, I would ordinarily agree with you, we don’t want people using loads of batteries and then throwing them in normal bins. The creators do say recycle responsibly but most people will still use a normal bin. However if the restaurants/bars provided a battery recycle bin where these are sold that would be a start.
Certainly in Ireland getting access to power outlets in bars/restaurants or anywhere else is very difficult so I think for now this is a potentially good solution.
Over time though yes we need devices that can last 3 to 5 days so that we never need to worry about having to top up while out.
