Moixa USB Cell Batteries: They Really Work

Moixa USB Cells

Remember those Moixa USB rechargeable batteries we told you about? Well, folks at TrustedReviews got hold of some of them and put them to a test.

The verdict: pretty good; the USB batteries did exceptionally well, taking 500 pictures compared with just a few photos taken with a set of Duracell alkaline batteries.

The downside: it’s quite expensive at $24 for a pair of AA-sized cell.

The upshot of the review is that this is a brilliant invention by Moixa Energy – a NiMH battery rechargeable over USB – but look at its very low score on value for money: TrustedReviews gave it a mere 6 out of 10 and we fully agree. It’s way too expensive for a penlight battery.

We remember that only about a year ago, it was ThumbDrive who first came out with a USB stick flash drive with a price so exorbitant it was disgusting. Then everybody made USB sticks and made them cheaper and where is ThumbDrive now?

Moixa had better go down in price soon or they will go the way of the ThumbDrive.
