Battery Recycling Program
Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you for purchasing a NewerTech NuPower High Capacity Replacement Battery for your Apple notebook. Besides adding the highest performing battery power to your computer, you also perhaps unknowingly made a decision to help promote a cleaner environment.


Free of lead, mercury, cadmium, PBBs, PBDE
In March 2007, we completed the conversion of the NuPower battery line to be fully RoHS certified. That means the battery you purchased is lead, mercury, and cadmium free, as well as manufactured without the use of dangerous and harmful chemicals such as PBBs and PBDE.


For a Far Smaller Impact... think local!
To continue our commitment to environmental stewardship, we have researched all the resources used and emissions generated to send us back your old battery and have concluded that having disposal take place in your local region has a far smaller impact on the environment than sending it across country to us using commercial carriers.

How We Recycle batteries Our battery recycling program is two fold:
The second phase
The second phase is what happens to the actual battery components. For the batteries we receive that are at the end of their useful life, we send them to a battery-handling specialty company that ensures the various cells and components are separated, so that the li-ion cells are properly disposed of and all recoverable materials are recycled. What is recovered varies by battery – but typically, the PCB, plastic housing, and metal casings are recouped scrap from the process.

The most important aspect of our program is that it prevents these batteries from ending up in landfills – where the toxic chemicals, mainly Lithium Ion – would otherwise eventually escape from the cells where they can then cause environmental harm. Older batteries may also contain mercury, which is even more damaging even in small quantities.
The first phase
Whenever possible, we pursue any possibilities of refurbishing batteries and giving them a new life.
