But alas, we’re past the point of no return and it’s time to go back to school. So get charged up and ready to go with Rayovac’s new 2-Hour Power!

Pencils and papers are a thing of the past and now it’s all about the latest electronics. An outdated supply list is a student’s worst nightmare, so spruce up this year’s list by adding a 2-hour Power.

With the 2-hour power, students can attend school with the reassurance of a charged up cell phone. The 2-hour power is a perfect solution for the high school student that can’t charge their phone in the middle of class. With no cord, this tiny charger will fit perfectly in any backpack, and you can charge discreetly without getting in trouble from the teacher.    More...

Hearing Loss Detection in Children

by rayovac17, July 2013

When the stork arrives and you are holding your newborn in your arms for the first time, your new child’s hearing ability may not be the first thought that pops into your brain. But I’m sure your baby’s health does. Checking your newborns hearing is just as important as checking for ten fingers and ten toes.

Children who have undetected hearing loss might not gain the cognitive abilities that are needed for learning, or may not be able to acquire normal speech and language. Children with hearing loss may be extremely stressed out because they may not understand why it is harder for them to learn simple material.

Babies should get their hearing checked before they are even one month old. Technology now allows hearing screenings on children a few hours after they are born. Most states even require hearing testing on newborns before they are to leave the hospital. If your child has hearing loss, you should consider the use of a hearing device or other communication options by 6 months of age. 

Rayovac offers the longest lasting hearing aid batteries in the world, in sizes 10, 13, 312, and 675. We also have a cochlear battery specifically made to meet the needs of patients with cochlear implants. As well as our ProLine hearing aid batteries, which are the #1 choice of hearing care professionals. All of our hearing aid batteries are mercury free.

Early hearing loss detection is crucial when it comes to speech, language and learning in young children. In the event your child does need hearing aids, let Rayovac be there for all your hearing aid battery needs.
