Moixa Energy is gearing up its USBCell rechargeable batteries for some fashion makeover. Since these are recharged and re-used hundreds of times, Moixa figured they might as well make it more fashionable to match the equally fashionable gadgets and gizmos of todayâ€™s users.
Of course, the makeover is just skin deep, something to do with colors; itâ€™s still the same good old USBCell inside. Since its debut back in September 2006, the USBCell has received considerable media attention because itâ€™s easy to recharge via the USB connections available in computers.
The USBCell AA battery was even commended as a finalist for best product design of 2006 by Design Week â€“ but was narrowly beaten by a certain product called the iPod Shuffle.
USBCell AA products are now available in over 50 countries worldwide. A full range of USBCell formats from AA, AAA, 9V batteries and custom batteries for phones and portable gaming and camera devices is being planned by Moixa. Two-cell packs of USBCell AA batteries currently sell for about $20.
