by rayovac24, July 2013

Nom nom nom. Know that sound? It's you, snacking before dinner. How can you do that in good conscience while your sad little iPhone sits there starving on your desk? How can you stuff your face full of protein bar while your jealous phone looks on feeling the hunger pangs of its last battery bar? Your iPhone may not have actual feelings of envy, but like you, it sometimes needs a late-day power snack in order to soldier on. Have a little compassion, man, and get a portable power charger for iPhone so your mobile companion can enjoy afternoon power-boosts too.

How do you keep a late-day snack on hand for your iPhone wherever you go? Surely we're not suggesting you drag around the power cord and stay near electrical power sources, are we? Nah. Instead we've created the Phone Boost Charger, a sweet little portable power charger for iPhone users like you. It's a keychain! It's a power charger! It's a late-afternoon snack! Siri will never go hungry again!    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.

An iPhone Power Charger for Emergencies plus 2 Other Safety Tips for Child iPhone Users

by rayovac10, July 2013

It’s not just a wild, wild world anymore. It’s also a wired, wired one. That’s a tricky mix for parents to manage. If you’ve decided your child is ready for an iPhone, it’s a good idea to monitor their activity, limit the phone’s functionality, and provide a backup iPhone power charger:

1.Monitor your child’s mobile activity. Help your child learn self-control by setting clear boundaries and rules for their phone usage—things like no exorbitant amounts of phone time, no sharing personal information with strangers, and no freely surfing the web with reckless abandon. Shop for apps that can help you with this important job of monitoring (and limiting) your child’s phone usage.

2.Limit the functionality of the phone. There are times when the iPhone’s seemingly limitless power is thrilling, but when the phone is in your child’s hands is probably not one of them. Not only can total iPhone freedom get very expensive but also it can get dangerous. Decide what purposes the phone is supposed to serve for your child, and then set up the phone so that it serves just those purposes. For example, if the phone is meant for your child to reach someone in case of emergency or to simply check in, then program the phone so that outbound calls are limited to 911 and those few important phone numbers.

3.Equip your child with backup power. You know how scary it would be if you were in an emergency situation and discovered your phone had no battery power left? Imagine what it would be like for your child. Imagine how many more situations just feel like emergencies to kids. Then put a Rayovac PS71 External Battery Back Up in your child’s backpack, locker, or gym bag—anywhere it might come in handy. With this ultra-compact external iPhone power charger, it won’t matter if your child has forgotten to recharge the phone or used it to death. They’ll have emergency power at the ready.

The #1 Item you Cannot Forget to Bring on Your Road Trip is an iPhone Backup Battery

by rayovac24, June 2013

See there? Over those hills where the robin-egg sky meets the plains of waving wheat? Look at the highway cutting a black line under a family car whizzing along with its hubcaps gleaming. There’s something strapped to the roof - a kayak maybe? They’re on vacation! Isn’t it sweet? Well, it could be, but they forgot their iPhone backup battery. Let’s zoom in so we can hear:

Are we there yet? 


I told you already, two more hours to go.


Are you lost, dear?


Shhh. I didn’t expect to have to power off the GPS before we got there!


Dad, can you look on your iPhone for the nearest rest stop? I have to go potty.

[giggle] You said “potty!”


Your mother gobbled the power playing Draw Something. Phone’s almost dead.

I did not! You forgot to charge it last night!


Can I play Angry Birds after we go potty?


Didn’t you hear me? The battery is dying. Try playing I Spy.


I spy, with my little eye, a pimple on my sister’s face.


Shut up! Moooom! I need to call Stacy! More...
