Electrical items and batteries
There are many different types of batteries used in electrical and industrial electronic items. These include Sealed Lead Acid, Lithium Ion, UPS, Telecoms, Cars, Absolyte and Ni-Cad. Each of these batteries are classed as a hazardous waste material, and this means that they must be recycled in full compliance with laws and regulations. For business owners this is even more important, to avoid legal punishment.
What are UPS batteries?
UPS batteries are a specific type of portable battery that are very common. These are used to provide an uninterruptible power supply.
