The History of Rechargeable Lighted Dog Collars

vivid-dog-collar (2)We’ve been selling lighted dog collars and dog leashes since 2007 at Keep Doggie Safe. We are the experts in lighted dog safety. We are very proud of the products we sell, as these are the best ones on the market. If we don’t sell a lighted product, you can be sure that we have evaluated it and decided not to sell it.

Lighted dog collars generally use watch batteries, which are not rechargeable. Watch batteries are lightweight and last about 40 hours. They are a good solution to ensuring that your doggies collar stays lit, while remaining light enough for them. Watch batteries are also excellent for lighted dog leashes, as they keep the weight of those down as well.

Lately, we’ve been asked by several customers why we don’t sell rechargeable lighted dog collars.  These collars and leashes recharge using the USB port on your computer or via solar. At first glance, they are great, because the batteries never run out as long as you keep them recharged.


We continually evaluate rechargeable collars and leashes. Several years ago, we sold a line of rechargeable dog collars and leashes. Unfortunately, these products are not up to our standards because a high percentage of them did not recharge properly. They either kept losing their charge or stopped recharging at all. And since rechargeable collars and leashes do not offer the ability to include regular batteries, they become inoperable.

We would love to find a great rechargeable lighted collar or leash. If we do, we will offer it to you. However, in the meantime, we suggest you choose from the fine lighted products that we do offer. Those are the cream of the crop in a very crowded and confusing market.
