Use Rechargeable Batteries

When you MUST use batteries, why not use rechargeable batteries instead of spending money on the thousands of batteries used in devices across the Federal Government? Some may say "just don't use devices that require batteries", so this applies to those situations where you just can't avoid using such a device. If a pack of "AA" batteries cost $6.00, using rechargeable batteries just 20 times would save the Government around $100 - $110 (after the cost of rechargeable batteries), and most can be recharged up to 100 or more times. Across the Government, this could amount to millions of dollars saved.
