Despite falling slightly short of The Jetsons, modern technology is very advanced. Many devices are rendering outlets unnecessary as batteries become more powerful and reliable.
On The Job: The electronics necessary to run a business were completely wire-bound just a few decades ago. Today, the modern workplace is full of battery-powered devices that boost productivity. Wireless headsets allow employees to multi-task during important client interaction, keeping their hands free to take notes or access information from their computer. Likewise, powerful ion batteries make it easier to work on the go. Battery-powered portable laptops and advanced smart phones provide opportunities for employees to work in any location.
Around The Home: Cordless technology is just as useful for homeowners as it is for businesses. Alkaline-battery wireless phones, for instance, allow family members to take phone calls in any room of the home. This can make it easier for parents to watch young children or focus on chores while on the phone. Outdoors, cordless power tools utilize nickel-metal hydride batteries, allowing tools to perform in hard-to-access places. In the kitchen, families can save time with battery-powered mixers and juicers. These devices are especially beneficial when outlet space is taken up by larger, stationary appliances.
Renewable Energy Opportunities: Cord-baseddevices waste a lot of extra energy merely by being plugged into a wall. This excess power drain can be eliminated by utilizing cordless products instead. The use of battery-supported technology also opens up additional opportunities for saving energy. Recycling batteries, for example, helps to mitigate the electricity spent in producing new raw materials. Consumers should keep this recycling potential in mind when choosing between corded and cordless versions.
