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.

Sound familiar? Users of the 7-Hour Power are having trouble when it comes to charging their iPad and other mobile devices. So, why is this happening? Answer: The iOS 7 upgrade. A simple five-letter ERROR message is now being read when the PS73 connects to an Apple product.
Even though the 7-Hour Power can charge any USB-powered device, the latest iOS 7 upgrade has allowed Apple to disable the effectiveness of 3rd party charging cords. As you can see, the 7-Hour Power is not to blame. Causing the issue is 3rd party charging cords that are not Apple certified. Apple’s proprietary lightning tip is the only cord that can be used to charge Apple products.
Powering an iPad is still possible with the 7-Hour Power - all you need is the official Apple lightning cord and you’re good to go! More...
