We all use batteries on daily basis. If battery powered device stops working, we bin the batteries. However, why bin? Smart battery disposal machine will analyze batteries inserted into it. Disposal machine shows battery’s energy level on a screen and if battery contains still some energy, suggestions in a style like ‘not suitable for camera, but in remote control works for half a year and in a clock three months.’ are shown. If person, who disposes batteries does not need the battery by himself, battery can be given to someone else in need of battery. E.g. a mobile phone app could be used to ask whether battery is available for a clock.
