Moixa Energy USBCell AA NiMH batteries
Moixa Energy USBCell AA batteries are practical for an on-the-go gadget addict. These attractive, compact batteries resemble other nickel metal hydride AAs, except for a bright green cap covering the USB plug. Instead of tossing them in the trash or nestling them into a recharging unit when out of juice, you can pop these into a USB port on any laptop or other USB device.
The USBCell design is excellent and feels sturdy. When opened, the cap reveals a pair of tensile cords attaching it to the battery. We pulled and pulled, but couldn't break them.
The batteries' LEDs light up around the base while inside a USB port, and flash slowly some 20 minutes later when the battery warms up to a 90 percent charge. The light turns off when the AAs are ready for use.
