The future of batteries: What to know

Batteries are today a source of energy that is here to stay.

Batteries are very good. In fact, it was good for everyone for whom the batteries allowed the discovery of new inventions. In the case that concerns us, we will forget them. I know, we will constantly advance.

Most batteries are by definition are usually not rechargeable, it is neither ecological nor practical to do this.

Rechargeable batteries

Then come the batteries that can be recharged. We know the classic “rechargeable batteries” type NI-mH. They can be very practical in some cases, as they are often of standard AA or AAA format, and are found almost everywhere. The only problem is investing in quality Ni-mHs like those of the Sanyo Eneloop brand as well as in a real charger. For the record, it is often he who is responsible for the drop in quality and the autonomy of your rechargeable batteries. This will surely be the subject of a next post.

It’s very important these days to get a good rechargeable flashlight in order to help get yourself out of some tough spots.

Li-ion batteries

You will enter the world of luminous power, you need a stable energy source, and one that holds it down. The Li-ion batteries are not well known but possess good power.

No charge memory, no need to discharge the battery to recharge it
No very little self-discharge as with other batteries. It is rather nice not to have to control the charge of the stored batteries before an exit.

For my part, my choice goes to the tactical format, more widespread, and it is with this one that I like. The size surprises at the start, but they are very fast. Level autonomy, everything will depend on your lamp. You will have to equip yourself with a specific charger. These are not particularly expensive (from very good to $30 maximum) and they are a very worthwhile investment.

5 tips to clean your dishwasher

Even if it is intended for cleaning, the dishwasher also needs to be cleaned from time to time. Here are 5 tips to remove dirt and bad odors.

1. The rotating arms of the dishwasher may become dirty. With a toothpick, tweezers, or other sharp object, remove any pieces of food that clog small holes.

2. The outline of the door and the seal of the appliance should be rubbed with a sponge and a general purpose cleaner. Since these areas are not affected by water and cleaning products during washing, they accumulate dirt. Exposed to moisture, they can become areas of accumulation of mold or fungi.

3. The various baskets of the dishwasher can be cleaned simply with a toothbrush and white vinegar.

4. To get rid of unpleasant odors, cleaning is continued by operating the appliance unladen. For this washing cycle, sodium bicarbonate is placed in the soap dispenser. It is also possible to use a cup of white vinegar, which is placed in the bottom of the vat before starting the appliance.

5. Most dishwashers have a filter that must be cleaned regularly and optionally replaced. It is advisable to follow the instructions in the appliance manual for this cleaning, but normally the filter can be rinsed with water and rubbed with a small brush. Do not forget to unplug the machine if you have to unscrew some parts of the machine to access the filter. We take our precautions!

Cant afford a dishwasher?

If you don’t have the money for a dishwasher then you can always just use water from the tap to blast the dirt off. Both ways, we think will work fine depending on your budget. Either way, though you will need to get a kitchen faucet, we recommend the Delta 9178 for pretty much anybody.
