- How old discarded batteries of laptops should be used in India tells IBM India Study?
- About 400 million people in India are away from the electrical grid, and use other sources to get power. An IBM India study analysed a sample of discarded batteries and found 70% had enough power to keep an LED light on more than four hours a day for a year. Researchers in a conference in San Jose, US told that using discarded batteries is cheaper than existing power options, and also it helps us in dealing with the mounting e-waste problems.
- The study makes us to believe on "Old laptop batteries could power slums in India and other developing countries".
