How We Package Your Batteries

We recycle cardboard to create a weave pattern for our packing materials. This provides better protection for your product than traditional packing materials and helps us reduce waste. Batteries are particularly heavy and are prone to crushing packing peanuts or popping the plastic air pillows you’ve seen in other packages. Cardboard is built and rated for its ability to withstand the rigors of cross-country shipping.

However, this may leave a coating of cardboard dust on your merchandise. To prevent this, we will also place batteries in a paper bag or wrap it in recycled brown paper to keep it clean. Our batteries are shipped brand new, and we certainly want them to look that way when you get your order!

See our shippers hard at work!

If you are interested in joining us in our recycling efforts, you may return your old battery to us in the same box. Your battery will be recycled, and the box and packing materials will be reused for a future order. Learn more about recycling batteries at Battery Mart.

Please call us at 800-405-2121 or email us at [email protected] for more information and return procedures.  NiCD and NiMH batteries should be recycled properly. Do NOT throw these batteries in the trash. NiCD batteries are composed of approximately 20% cadmium, an extremely hazardous element and environmentally detrimental. While NiMH batteries are environmentally friendly, the higher capacity NiMH cells still contain trace amounts of cadmium.
