First off, this isn’t your average prep school. Prep has a double meaning and the definition we care about can be summed up with a simple acronym – Prudent Reasonable Emergency Preparedness. We applaud you for enrolling in the school of prep – where with a few simple steps and a nose for the ‘just in case’ prepping for any emergency situation will prove easier than you originally thought.
Have you heard the expression better safe than sorry? Consider this the Prep School motto that reinforces the importance of being prepared. The bell has officially rung and your first class can now begin: Prep Supplies 101. Looking at the syllabus, 100% of your grade is based on the quality of your emergency preparedness kit and the supplies you have in it. That’s where we come in. Rayovac is the tutor that helps you create the ultimate emergency kit and pass your class with flying colors.
The formula for an A+ emergency kit starts and ends with Rayovac quality products. You can utilize basic math to add the following must-have Rayovac supplies: Flashlight + Batteries + Lantern + Portable Power = Prep School Valedictorian.

Do you bleed red, white and blue? Does the national anthem send shivers down your spine? Feelings of patriotic fervor are common for the country you call home and for some buying products that are made in the USA is an absolute necessity. Rayovac prides itself on being American-made for well over a century. Score one for American ingenuity.
The story of Rayovac begins in 1906; the American public was searching for a new business to provide goods and services along with jobs in manufacturing. Blue collared jobs were a staple of the early 1900’s and Rayovac carved out a niche in the US market for alkaline batteries. As the years progressed, a permanent facility was erected in Fennimore, WI dedicated to the production of alkaline batteries. More...

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.

For the average consumer, the storage life of an alkaline battery has yet to crack the list of top priorities when making a battery purchase. The normal list of priorities currently includes price, brand, convenience and appearance. Becoming more familiar with the benefits of battery storage life, consumers are starting to realize that it’s far more important than what they first perceived. A decades worth of battery freshness has slowly but surely caught the attention of selective consumers.
Storage life has always been a strong suit for alkaline batteries. They have proven themselves to be the smart battery choice for consumers because they last for long periods of time and perform well at high and low temperatures. Many products that are purchased by consumers have expiration dates that are woefully short. This has conditioned the consumer to think that every product they buy will expire on short notice. But with the creation of new alkaline technology, Rayovac has made storage life and battery freshness a top priority.
As of late, there has been a growing attention to coupons and the way consumers use them to maximize their savings. This new wave of coupon lovers are storming the local supermarkets and buying products like alkaline batteries in bulk. This is where storage life of an alkaline battery becomes a top priority. Families place the surplus batteries into designated storage areas and only use them when needed. Consumers like this depend on the fact that Rayovac batteries can stay fresh in their storage closets for close to a decade.
As new technologies develop, the demand for reliable alkaline power is steadily increasing. Rayovac takes pride in providing reliable power in every battery it produces. It’s clear that having prolonged storage life will enhance an alkaline battery and short expiration dates were never Rayovac’s style. 10 years of battery freshness is the gold standard that Rayovac brings to the table. So next time your at the store to buy batteries, be sure to make storage life a top priority. As you can see it makes a huge difference!
