I'm sure that quality rechargeable consumer cells can be manufactured in the USA, if the economic and regulatory conditions permit. I better not go further into this for obvious reasons. You asked a very dangerous question, and if you do a little research you will discover the answer, I'm sure.Exactly my point, none, we can't make a quality rechargeable consumer cells in USA nor we can even sell imports for affordable price, it takes a Japanese manufacturer, and Swedish furniture store to bring them to US customer. Now, THAT is what really bugs me. How did we get there?
