Conclusions

Although small overall impact, largest impact by far caused by processing materials and producing
production, focus should not be on recycling.

Calculations
Total weight including batteries 0.13kg
Assuming transported
10000km by Oceanic freighter 0.13/1000x 100000 =1.3tkm
200km by 40 tonne truck 0.13/1000 x200 = 0.03tkm

Assume 2.4 watts used, 2 minutes per day twice a day for 2 years – batteries charged from mains
(2.4/1000) x (2/60) x 365 x 2 = 0.0584 kwh
Conclusions
Use and production highest due to quantity of materials used. Remember that this has not accounted
for production or disposal of the batteries which are likely to have a large impact. Disposal has almost
no impact.
