  1. Disposal of Batteries is Everyones Responsibilities

    Disposal of Batteries is Everyones Responsibilities
    Abandoned SLA Car BatteryBatteries left anywhere except in proper facilities hurt our environment. The average person throws away eight household batteries each year. In the United States alone, battery retailers sell nearly three billion batteries annually. When broken down, this figure comes out to an average of 32 batteries per family. Unfortunately, all these batteries contain heavy metals that can contaminate the environment. For example, some batteries contain mercury, lead, nickel and cadmium. To save the planet from hazardous waste, people must learn about proper battery disposal. Continue reading →

  4. LED Lighting Benefits & Long-Term Advantages

    LED Lighting Benefits & Long-Term Advantages
    LED technology produces solid-state lighting products that do not require filaments like traditional incandescent light bulbs. An LED bulb consumes up to 90% less power than an incandescent bulb, and it converts 80% of electrical energy to light. This remarkably low power consumption is its most obvious and well-known strength, but many people may not know that this technology can produce quite a few other long-term benefits for typical homeowners.

    Would You Buy a Hunting Knife from a Battery Store?
    Introducing Focus on Survival, our new eBay store for emergency supplies While this question may at first seem absurd – what possible connection can be found between these two products? – it is the reality of BatteriesInAFlash.com’s 2013 major project.  Throughout the last couple years, we have all noticed a series of worsening, bizarre weather and natural disasters.  Since when did tornadoes hit Pennsylvania?  Earthquakes in Haiti?  Even fresher in our minds is the shock of Hurricane Sandy striking New England in late October.  Would anyone expect a tropical storm to bring so much snow to hard struck areas?  The Northeast of the United States is still not fully recovered from the disaster. Seeing this surge of catastrophe’s awakened a new concern for BIAF’s owners Mike Dinelli and Avel Ureno.  We want to help our customers prepare for the unexpected storms and disasters that may face any one of us at any time.  For years we have already been selling flashlights, battery- and solar- powered lanterns, as well as Portable Backup Power systems and inverters.  Even that isn’t enough for us to feel like we’ve done everything for our customer’s safety.  To this end, we have opened an entirely new Focus On Survival eBay web store.  The goal is to provide people with everything needed to be prepared for an emergency, as well as other, fun outdoor equipment.

  6. Batteries at the 2013 CES Convention in Las Vegas

    One of the great things about being a technology based company right here in Las Vegas, NV is the privilege to attend CES every January. This year was no exception. Many people have said that CES 2013 was not near as impressive as previous conventions have been, and it is true that hundreds of booths were full of nothing more than glittery iPhone cases. However, this year seemed more of a transition year. Much of the technology already released is being improved upon. Focus was put upon waterproofing and ruggedizing the electronics we cherish, as well as making the technology we use bigger, faster, and more streamlined. Continue reading →
