Cloud nine can’t begin to describe it - the feeling you get when school is out and your summer plans can finally start. So much to do in a 3-month window that before you know it the final days of August have passed you by ending another summer chapter in the book you call life. And with a new school year fast approaching, the few remaining days of summer should be spent recharging your batteries.
Winding down from a fun-filled summer can be a tall task especially with all the back to school madness weighing heavy on your mind.

In today’s world, owning a personal cell phone has quickly become a rite of passage. The age to acquire and operate a mobile device has gradually been lowered as the younger generations have started to rely on technology more than ever. Those who do not own a cell phone or mobile device are quickly becoming the minority.
The transition to connect the world via cell phone has caused mobile device accessories to become necessities all their own. Sure, cool accessories like designer phone cases and wireless headsets have seen a rise in popularity, but they’re still not considered a necessity from today’s standards. Conversely, an innovative gadget like the mobile battery charger has transformed itself from optional accessory to absolute necessity.
To make the list of daily human necessities, a common problem must be solved. Portable chargers have created new peace of mind for those who depend on their mobile device on a day-to-day basis. Forgotten are the days when leaving the house with a half powered battery would be a cause for concern. Rayovac’s charger for mobile phone has cured this new-age problem by providing consumers with convenient on the go power.
Living the ‘prepared’ lifestyle dates back a number of years, but only recently has taken on new meaning. With the introduction of new technologies, being prepared for the failure of these technologies has become increasingly important. Recognizing the mobile device is the most vital technology in the world today, Rayovac set out to create a mobile cell phone charger that people can depend on. Consumers can now feel secure knowing their mobile device has its own fail-safe in case of emergency. The evolution of ‘being prepared’ just became a little easier to tame, courtesy of Rayovac.

Keys? Check. Wallet? Check. Phone? Check.

One less thing to think about, one less thing to worry about.
Whether you need a charger for mobile phone battery-extension, MP3 battery extension, or tablet battery extension, it makes no difference: Mobile chargers are pretty much one-size-fits-all, so they can rescue most any portable electronic device that has a USB port.

Laverne or Shirley? Boxers or briefs? White meat or dark meat? Oh, the hard questions of our time! In our high-tech society, the question of alkaline or rechargeable batteries has finally landed in this elite group of either/or’s. Don’t you sometimes find yourself standing in the battery aisle thinking about eloping with the rechargeable batteries and charger and kicking your relationship with alkaline batteries to the curb?
Hang on, cowboy. There’s no need to break up with your alkaline batteries—and at the same time, by all means, go ahead and grab those rechargeable batteries and charger. Alkaline batteries and rechargeable batteries each have different features that make them attractive, so you really need both!
Alkaline Batteries lose power at a much slower rate than rechargeable batteries. That’s why they’re best for slow-drain devices like your remote controls, home phones, and the LED display on your home elliptical machine. Alkaline batteries are also your best bet for emergency devices and your alarm clock—things that could seriously bungle your life if you don’t use a slow-drain battery.
Rechargeable Batteries are best for frequent-use and/or high-drain devices like your Wii nunchucks and digital cameras. You don’t want to break the bank buying truckloads of alkaline batteries for these devices, but if you’re like most people, you use them all the time. That’s why rechargeables are your best bet here. What are the best rechargeable batteries? Are you kidding? We’ve got plenty to choose from, including some with nice, little portable chargers—even a charger you can hang on your keychain!
So, there you have it. When it comes to alkaline vs. rechargeables, you can have your cake and eat it too. No need to fully commit to one or the other, because no household is complete without both!
