Moxia ships USBCELL
Moixa Energy has launched the USBCELL, a rechargeable battery that can charge from any USB port without the need for recharging devices, cradles, or cables. Users can open the lid to reveal a build-in USB connector, which charges the battery when plugged into any USB port. The USBCELL functions like a normal AA battery, and is recyclable to reduce wasteful consumption. A full charge requires five hours, and the device can charge on most USB hubs that make use an external power supply. Moixa's USBCELL is available for £13 in a package containing two AA batteries.
