Renu-It

Maker - Lou Lentine

Maker Story

New Life for Old Alkaline

Most of us have a stash of old alkaline batteries just waiting to be recycled or, even worse, headed for a landfill. It's time to rethink and recharge.

Lou Lentine, founder of Viatek, told us about a way to bring old alkaline batteries back to life, safely and without overheating or short-circuiting the cells. Lou explains that an alkaline battery can be renewed by cleaning the cells. The renewing process doesn’t add anything to the batteries, but it works to improve the internal structure of the cell so you can keep using it, over and over again.

His smart charger is called the Renu-It Disposable Battery Regenerator. It can regenerate not only alkaline batteries but also nickel-cadmium (NiCd) and nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) cells. The Deluxe model can handle five sizes (AA, AAA, C, D and 9-volt).

It’s a simple, convenient solution that’s easy on the environment and easy on our wallets.
