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.
Memorial Day weekend is a special time of year when you can rid yourself of all distractions and spend quality time with the ones you love. Seize the moment by making a family trip to the nearest campsite. A weekend away from responsibility may be just what you need to regain a little sanity. Remember the golden rule of camping? Be prepared. Pack the flashlights and power needed to light up your surroundings.
For some, camping is like therapy for the soul. The sanctuary known as the Great Outdoors is the perfect environment to toss aside your worries and bond with your family and Mother Nature. 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...

Think for a moment. What’s the one thing your mother says to you almost every day? Hint: mom likes to keep it simple, using short phrases that will capture your attention and last in your memory the entire day. Neatly placed in her bag of mom phrases, she keeps this message ready to go before you can even step one foot outside the door. “Be Careful.”
Mothers of the world unite to remind their kids of safety, uttering a familiar phrase that children have heard to the point of nausea - a warning of potential danger that may occur when exiting the house. Wondering where you are and what you’re doing is a mother’s job and she’s on the clock 24/7. This Mother’s Day, it’s time to reward her motherly instinct with the gift of portable power.
Rayovac portable power includes multiple on the go phone chargers that can keep you powered up throughout the day. Choosing portable power for this year’s gift is a win-win situation, extra power for your phone and added peace of mind for mom. Ease her mind for an extra hour daily with the Rayovac Phone Boost PS68. Instant cell phone power when you need it most, what more could a mother ask for. More...

Beware. The weatherman is not your friend. A real friend wouldn’t lie to you half the time and think it’s OK. Best to trust your own judgment and prepare for whatever Mother Nature throws at you. A piece of solid advice would be to pack a storm preparedness kit just in case. And lucky for you, Rayovac has mastered the art of making batteries, flashlights, lanterns and portable power that can help you weather any storm!
Sure, the weatherman has the gizmos and gadgets to predict the weather with near accuracy, but in the end it’s just an educated guess. Truth is, the weatherman’s favorite holiday is April Fools’ Day, the only day of the year when the forecast is right regardless of what actually happens. “Happy April 1st– today’s forecast includes rain and patchy fog…April Fools!” A played out joke, overused since the stone age of meteorology.
A month filled with storms is nothing to joke about. April weather can be dangerous and having a storm kit handy is the only way to protect your power and keep your family safe. Rayovac’s full line of flashlights feature battery operated LED's and general-purpose lights that come in handy in a pinch. Ten times more trustworthy than your average weatherperson, the LED 3AAA Glow In The Dark Flashlight lights up the room and helps you see where you’re going. More...

Whining in anticipation, your puppy Lucky is waiting by the door for you to put on your shoes and grab your things to go on your daily walk. Unfortunately, little do the both of you know that in addition to your wallet, keys, and phone, you should have grabbed your external cell phone battery charger to bring along.
Your morning routine has been the same for a while now—you get up early, before some people are even awake, and take a few laps around the local park with your dog as your only companion. Normally pretty mundane, it's likely that you always take the same path in the morning. This morning is different, however. Lucky spots the first bunny of her young life, and bolts. It's unexpected, and Lucky's Labrador strength wins out over the weak training leash you have her on, and you find yourself on the ground, with pain shooting up one of your legs.
What are you to do? Lucky isn't too much help licking your face, and it might be an hour or more before a stranger happens upon you who could help. Frustrated, you realize that you would have been able to call for help if you had grabbed your external cell phone battery charger before you left so that you could have charged your phone when you needed it most. You resolve to make sure to pack it every time you have an outdoor adventure in the future. After all, you realize, in similar situations, an external charger could give you access to: More...

Picture yourself on your way to your dream vacation, all of your worries behind you, and the last thing on your mind is whether you packed your portable iPhone charger. Once you arrive at the airport however, you find yourself stuck because of unforeseen delays or canceled flights. Frustrated, you take out your phone to let your friends and family know, but instead of a bright screen, you see the awful blinking red light informing you that your battery has died.
Inevitably, you forgot to charge your phone the night before and there are no convenient outlets available for you to plug in your phone at the airport. Now you are stuck, disconnected and bored—left with no choice but to stare constantly at the slowly moving clock, irritated that you are not yet in paradise.
Imagine instead a different scenario. After you are delayed at the airport and pull out your phone, upset that it doesn't have any power, you remember packing a portable iPhone charger in your bag just in case. Woohoo! This story is now a much different one. While you'll still have to sit in the uncomfortable airport seats, you won't be bored or disconnected. Your portable power affords you access to important information that you would otherwise miss: More...
