Rechargeables save alot of money

Hi, David here with PowerEx


Here is a thought for those sceptics that don't want to change over to rechargeables. How much money are spending on batteries? I know, I know, your uncle's cousins brothers sisters mother has a connection with someone at Costco... Enough of that! Just admit how much you spend on batteries.

If you just use gear that runs off of 9 volt batteries and you play every weekend, your cost per year is about $468 bucks a year!


If you use any AA hopper(Halo B/Reloader B) with a 9v e-grip and play every weekend your cost per year is about $800 to $1000 bucks a year!

If you are a "Real" tournament player no matter what division and don't have a battery sponsorship you are spending about
$1300 a year per player, (Team managers take note). This is based on a team that plays only one tournament series and includes practices.

Even if you only play twice a month you still save alot of money using rechargeables.

I hope to raise alot of thought on this. What do you think?
Note: for you millinium all stars PowerEx offers international versions of our AA and 9v chargers!

wow, that's some serious overestimating there...
i play every weekend, use up about 60 AAs/12 9-volts annually, totalling no more than $45. nowhere near your very high estimates.

i don't like my powerEx batterys, the 9volts suck. i will fully charge it and it will only last 4,000 shots in my ego and 2 9volts only last around 1,500 shots in my relaoderB, i do better with safeway select 9volts
