ST. LOUIS (AP) — Worn-out hybrid electric car batteries are getting a new use, helping to power a new rechargeable battery from Energizer Holdings Inc.

The suburban St. Louis-based company on Tuesday launched Energizer Recharge. The new rechargeable AA and AAA batteries contain 4 percent, by weight, of material recycled from hybrid batteries — an industry first, according to Energizer.

Energizer officials say the Recharge batteries perform the same, and last as long, as batteries that do not contain recycled material.

Energizer first introduced its EcoAdvanced batteries in February 2015. Those batteries contain 4 percent recycled material from household batteries, but are not rechargeable.
