New Battery Gets its Power From Dead Batteries

Next time you find yourself taking old batteries out of a camera or remote control, you may not have to throw them directly in the garbage can. The R Battery is a D type battery that uses the power left in old batteries.
Seemingly dead batteries still have some charge left in them, and the R Battery has the ability to grab that last little bit of energy for use in one big battery. You just drop the old ones into the R Batter and once the lid is closed, it will pull the energy right out of them.
According to Yanko Design, the large battery even has an LED strip running up the side that lets you know how much energy was collected and how much is left after you use it.
You'll get the most out of your batteries, but the only problem now is that you are going to have to spend time changing your battery's batteries.
