Powersonic and Vancouver Battery

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Vancouver Battery is proud to announce that we will be distributors of Powersonic batteries. We are working on our first shipment of the most common Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries as well as Powersonic’s full line of SLA chargers.

All Powersonic batteries will be available to us and we will consistently increase our stock on Powersonic batteries as we become more familiar with the line.

We are excited to bring on Powersonic because it has a great reputation in the industry as well as an extensive battery offering with competitive pricing.

Battery Recycling

Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

Great news on the recycling front.  Since July of this year the BC government and the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) have implemented a system that now includes non alkaline batteries.  There is no charge for this which has been a big barrier for recycling of non rechargeable batteries in the past.

Details on this recycling plan for BC can be found at:  http://www.call2recycle.ca/bc-product-stewardship-plan.php?c=149&d=244&e=200&f=340&w=9&r=Y

Now you can bring your batteries to Vancouver Battery Corp and we can send them off to be recycled.  As a note please bring them during our hours of business which is Mon-Fri: 10-6:30pm and Sat 10-5pm.  It can get a little messy looking when bags our left outside of our retail store.

Thanks for keeping green.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
