Rechargeable Alkaline: Believe it or not, these things are still around. Most of you remember the now-discontinued Rayovac Renewal Recharageable Alkalines, but rechargeable alkalines are still available from Pure Energy and EnviroCell, among others. Here's what Michael Bluejay says:
Even the special rechargeable alkalines, like the Rayovac Renewal, have the same problem: very few recharge cycles, and ever-decreasing capacity.That said, there is exactly one circumstance in which charging alkalines might make sense for you:
You need the extra voltage an alkaline puts out. Some devices that take multiple batteries won't work with NiMH because the voltage is too low. (more on this problem) And with LED flashlights, even though NiMH will work, you'll get a brighter light with RA's.
For most people and circumstances though, charging alkalines is pointless.
Nickel-Zinc (NiZn): Startup PowerGenix has introduced their new line of NiZn Rechargeable batteries. As you might guess, you'll need their special charger to recharge them. Some folks really like them.

The perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for Presbyterian in your life.
Sno Wovel™ wheeled snow shovels are designed to greatly reduce the physical strain of shoveling and the related risks of back and heart injuries. The Sno Wovel™ wheeled snow shovel was the subject of an indpendent study by the University of Massachusetts (Bryan Buchholz, PhD, Professor and Director, Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology) which focused on lower back stress and overall exertion as compared to traditional snow shovels. The results are quite compelling, finding the Sno Wovel™; virtually eliminated lower back stress ... "comparable to simply walking - representing an impressive 85% and more reduction in lower back disk compression." Overall exertion (which is one of the major factors in heart risk) was found to be reduced by a factor of 3x or more. ..and with 72,000 annual emergency room visits annually in the US attributable to shoveling with snow shovels and snow blowers, the Sno Wovel has earned its reputation as the World's Safest Snow Shovel! And now the Sno Wovel is available globally and winning awards globally... Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Japan and more...
