When thinking of our environment and all the concerns that come along with caring for it, most people do not consider the batteries that we rely on. This may include those extremely popular AA batteries, car batteries, and marine batteries. We use these things constantly and unfortunately, they do lose their charge, get thrown away, and take up space in local landfills. Perhaps, if you care about the world around you and preserving it for future generations, you should consider the ways to properly dispose of your batteries or at the very least, buy batteries that are made to last longer.
Disposing Your Batteries
Older batteries use to pose a major threat to our environment because they did contain mercury. Now, the mercury that is inside of our regular AA batteries is thought to be less of an environmental threat. However, for anyone trying to save the world, you can send them to a household hazardous waste facility where they will properly dispose of it and possibly recycle it into a usable battery again.
A lot of places will not allow people to dispose of a vehicle or marine batteries in their landfill. This means that when you buy a new battery you have the option to return your old battery for them to dispose of it. This service may or may not cost you, but the used batteries still have to go somewhere. Instead of taking a chance that you will have to pay more or damage the environment, why not play it safe and create less batteries to recycle?
Cause Less Wasted Batteries
Instead of replacing your marine battery every season, why not purchase a deep cycle marine battery? They have the ability to last much longer than regular batteries. The longer you are able to use a single battery, one that does not have cells that go bad quickly, you are saving money and doing your part to save the landfills from your battery.
Why Choose Deep Cycle Marine Batteries?
These batteries are built to last. Some have 750 cold cranking amps and a 120 minute reserve capacity. They may have 220 Amp-hours and six volts and others may have in excess of 2,000 watts. Obviously, the more you are able to spend on a marine battery the better, but either way, you cannot beat the amount of cranking amps and charges that you can put this battery through while it continues to pump out and hold its juice.
As an added bonus, most of these marine batteries are also usable in your car, truck, RV or other vehicles. This means you could have one in each and always feel certain that you have the amps to go on. Even if you forget to turn out your headlights or your kids leave the car door ajar. If you have top posts on your battery and top posts on your vehicle’s battery, take the marine battery and swap it around. It will work regardless of what you put it inside of.
Are you ready to do yourself and your future generations a huge favor by getting a marine battery that will not stop until you are done?
