Why Buy Scarab Rechargeable Dog Light?

That’s easy, it Saves you Money

When you buy a dog light, do you really want to keep paying to use it?

The majority of dog lights are battery operated and NOT rechargeable. They have fewer components inside making the selling price cheaper but you will keep paying to keep it running-fact!

In a battery operated dog light you have a maximum run time of 250 hours, if you bought a cheap one then you have significantly less. The average replacement battery pack for the 250 hour versions is around £6.00 each (plus postage where applicable) thus making your average battery powered dog light quite a costly investment over its lifetime, not to mention the cost to the environment on top.

Disposing of lithium manganese (non-rechargeable) coin cell batteries are currently only recycled to a very small extent by specialised firms, well below 4% of all batteries used in households are recycled.

There are two reasons, first is the small amount of batteries of any kind which the average family accumulates and usually there is no formal collection of the few tens of grams of material. The second is the variety of materials which are used to make batteries work. Some examples of the material types consist of:

  • Zinc
  • Carbon
  • Graphite
  • Manganese dioxide
  • Alkali solution
  • Lithium compounds
  • Cases made from steel
  • Various plastics

If disposed of in landfill as most coin cell packs are, metals like zinc and nickel eventually leak out and they are potential pollutants of water.
