Yeah, that great! I am interested to know what would be the price of these vibration harvester battery substitutes. I would also like to know their life (hopefully much more than the rechargeable batteries). I am assuming that the mechanical dimensions of these products are the same as the AA or AAA size batteries, so that the AA / AAA batteries could be easily replaced by the equivalent vibration batteries, correct? Know all these I think I will be able to make a judgment about whether to use them or not.

OK, this sounds like a Christmas present we rec'd in recent years, substituting flashlight for remote control (or actually, battery). Yes, they work. Is it convenient? No. People still generally avoid rechargable batteries unless it's in high usage applications (like flash batteries for cameras, etc.) Until it is painful in the wallet to buy AA's, this noble idea will not be embraced by the masses. I pay 5 cent deposit on Aluminum cans. But none on batteries. Go figure.
