Prep yourself for the weekend trip with help from Rayovac.

Rayovac wants to dedicate this blog post to all of the brave men and women who have served in the US military both past and present. Yet again the time has come to celebrate Memorial Day, a magnificent holiday marked by a 3-day weekend where US citizens come together and cherish the freedom provided by veterans.

Unfortunately, 21st century gadgets can hold your family hostage by distracting their minds with relative ease. Items like cell phones, laptops and iPods are a nuisance to scheduled family time across the nation.   More...
