How many batteries are used each year?
It is not known
It is widely known the fact that batteries are an integral part of modern life, affecting the way people work, play, communicate, and travel. The exact number of batteries thrown each year is not known. Anyway, it is interesting to know that 179,000 tons of batteries are thrown per year in America. Needless to say, 14000 of them are rechargeable. Believe it or not, more than three billion industrial and household batteries were sold in the US in 1998. This is definitely something.
