Ouroboros is a brand of everlasting batteries.
The name comes from a snake that is eating itself, depicting the never-ending circle of life, whilst the symbol is also referred to as the infinity rune (or Moebius strip). This word was written on the box that baby Dave Lister was found in, as a way to tell him about the time paradox he was created from. Lister is in fact his own father and Kristine Kochanski is his mother, thus creating a time paradox to ensure humanity's continued survival. (RD: Ouroboros)
