What do a Little Black Bag, an Emergency Cell Phone Charger, and Canned Soup Have in Common? | Rayovac Blog

by rayovac10, March 2014

Many don't think about preparing for the unexpected. Make sure to create your own go-bag, with everything you might need from an emergency cell phone charger to important documents.

That's an easy one: an emergency cell phone charger and a can of soup are both packed in your little black go-bag. Right now, however, it's the furthest thing from your mind as you juggle a job, the kids' schedules, meal preparation, and other errands. But knowing that it's tucked away at the bottom of your pantry makes you feel secure that it's there, just in case.

Your expecting sister-in-law, Bev, is the one who brings it to your attention when she is visiting and goes into the pantry for a snack. She reaches for the jar of peanuts, her latest craving, and asks you what that odd black bag is doing in your pantry. It takes you a second to realize what she is talking about, but you figure out it must be your go-bag for emergencies. It's easy to explain to Bev what it is, but more difficult to convince her that it's necessary. After all, she says, why bother if emergencies rarely happen around here? More...

The External Battery: A Lifesaver for a Busy Day | Rayovac Blog

by rayovac21, February 2014

Make sure that you don't lose power on your devices when you're on the go with a powerful and compact external battery from Rayovac.An external battery is the last thing on Marissa's mind. It’s already 10’oclock on a Thursday night and her final paper is due Friday morning. After a hectic day between classes, club meetings, and volunteering, anxiety starts to set in. Less than 12 hours before her final paper is due. Looks like an all-nighter.

Ready to sleep at the library if she has to, Marissa forgets to power the one device that keeps her in touch with the outside world. Her phone is running low on battery because she's been catching up with a few of her friends throughout the day. And her tablet isn't faring much better – she’s been using it to take notes in class.

Luckily, her tablet lasts long enough to finish her paper, and her phone survives with 1% so she can text her roommate that she's on her way back. It wasn't an all-nighter, but close to it. Marissa walks back to her dorm, looking forward to a few hours of sleep before class tomorrow.

But upon waking, the inevitable happens. Marissa has overslept, and realizes she forgot to email her final paper. She reaches for her tablet, but to her dismay, she's forgotten to charge it. She looks to her phone but forgot to charge that too. As she frantically runs out the apartment door, her roommate sees her and says Marissa can borrow her external battery. Marissa grabs it and heads to the bus stop. More...

New Products Release Date; CES 2014 Coming To A Close

by rayovac10, January 2014

Today marks the final day of CES 2014 and with it comes the end of an exciting week for product innovation. In 2014, Rayovac will roll out a number of new portable power chargers that are sure to impress techies around the globe. Affordable, mobile power solutions for the entire family!

7-Hour Power Recharge, Phone Boost 800, Power Pack 2000 and Power Pack 6000 will all release in May of 2014. And for those who couldn’t make it to CES, check out this blog post written by an Iowa mom who knows an innovative product when she sees it.

Rayovac will be attending International CES 2014 which takes place January 7-10 in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the event, Rayovac’s groundbreaking 2-Hour Power portable charging device will be honored for outstanding product design and innovation.

If you haven’t seen this little bad boy, you need to check it out! We went on a week long road trip from SW Iowa, to West Texas, up to North Iowa and back down to SW Iowa and the kids used their iPod touches for movies, games and music. I can’t begin to express how happy I was to take the 2-Hour Power portable charging device with us. We used it countless times to recharge the kids’ iPods.

Rayovac will also showcase a brand new line of portable chargers that will be added to its already spectacular product line. New products include a 7-Hour Power that uses rechargeable batteries, (this makes me beyond excited!) a rechargeable phone boost now compatible with Apple lightning tip (can we say ‘giddy’!) and much more.

2-Hour Power: Resourceful Mom Review and Holiday Giveaway

by rayovac19, December 2013

“CONFESSION: I have a phone with a dreadful battery life. A couple years ago I had a dinosaur of the smart phone world, and while I took a healthy dose of teasing for my beast, the battery would last for days. (Days, I tell you!!)  Since making the switch to a sleeker, savvier model, I haven’t had to endure the teasing. Of course, this could be because my friends can’t find me.  My battery is either dead or I’m sitting somewhere in a corner, my phone plugged in to an outlet.

While it’s important to have a charged cell phone battery in situations ranging from family vacations to work conferences to car pool lines, there are also emergency situations when your dying phone battery needs a boost for your family’s safety. This is where Rayovac once again saves the day. The Rayovac 2-Hour Power can provide you with up to 2 hours of additional talk time when your phone’s battery, like mine often does, is falling down on the job. You don’t have to have a power cord or an outlet.

 

In fact, the charger uses a Rayovac CR123A battery to provide your phone with power on-the-go, during sudden emergencies, or as a back-up power source during storms.  To ensure that you have power when you need it, just stock the Rayovac CR123A battery, which has a 10 year shelf life. To use the Rayovac 2-Hour Power, simply insert the battery, turn on the device, and plug it into your mobile device.”

Holiday Shopping Complete? Don’t Forget the Batteries!

by rayovac13, December 2013

Finding the perfect gift for all your loved ones can be exhausting. You make a list, check it twice and then make the trip to a number of stores gathering items to put under the tree. With holiday chores piling up it’s easy to forget the batteries.

The burden of a holiday to-do list has gotten the best of many a mom but not you – not this year. Forgetting the batteries is holiday faux pas number one. Imagine a household with no fresh batteries on Christmas morning. The chaos would be unbearable. You can either search the house and eventually “borrow” the remote batteries or bundle up and venture out into the cold weather and brave the holiday traffic.

Whether your late or early, holiday shopping can be tough when the traffic is bad and store parking lots are packed to the brim. No one wants to make a repeat trip, especially when the temperature outside is borderline freezing. Not to mention the stores are usually bolted shut and closed for the holidays. Avoid the holiday disaster and pick up the batteries the first go-round.

Holiday shopping requires a plan of attack and buying the batteries should be your first objective. Rayovac alkaline batteries are easily found at any major retailer and can power all the gizmos and gadgets you’d likely purchase. When you approach the checkout aisle - be stealthy and grab a pack to pair with your holiday gifts. Your family will thank you later.
