Scientists at Stanford University said they have developed a high-performance aluminum-ion battery that could replace the alkaline and lithium-ion batteries that are used to power devices today.
Battery and consumer products maker Energizer Holdings Inc. says it is buying feminine care brands including Stayfree, Carefree and o.b. from Johnson & Johnson for $185 million in cash.
Police in Collinsville are looking for suspects who stole batteries from nearly three dozen school buses.
The batteries weigh roughly 100 pounds and can be sold for $50 apiece at a recycling center.
Some people may get a jolt when they find out what it costs if they choose to recycle, instead of sending those batteries to the landfill.
