Toxic batteries?

Just something I was thinking about this morning … thought you might find it interesting. I’m glad to know that lithium batteries are a bit safer for the environment – I just wonder about mining/extraction and social impact of that … A lot of mining for these kinds of elements happens in developing countries [i.e. in Africa] where there are human rights abuses linked to the industry. More research needed …

    The Kreellers just recorded a commercial for Fuji on there new enviromax battery that’s supposed to be much safer for the environment. Some companies do care.
    I only use rechargeable batteries myself.
