    Check this out for a neat gimmick!!

    Overview & Features

    Introducing our revolutionary new rechargeable battery - the USBCELL.
    This NiMH AA cell can be used like a normal battery and can be recharged simply by plugging into a USB port.

    I assume by your post that you don't think these are of any use at all then Dyl...:rolleyes:

    Must admit I agree with Dyl... unless of course they act like USB sticks too and you can save data on them?

    Nice gimmick - but if your power supply in your PC is only just up to the job it could tip it over the edge and blow it. Same as the USB coffee cup warmer and the fag lighter that fits in a 3.5" bay.
    Bit dear, too! Can buy lots of NimH high-capacity rechargables and a charger for that!

    Also, would you really want to turn the computer on to charge a battery (I'm talking about desktop PC here) if you can just plug it into the wall to charge? I can see the idea behind it though- very creative!
