Buy mom some portable power and you'll be a serious candidate for Child of The Year.

Think for a moment. What’s the one thing your mother says to you almost every day? Hint: mom likes to keep it simple, using short phrases that will capture your attention and last in your memory the entire day. Neatly placed in her bag of mom phrases, she keeps this message ready to go before you can even step one foot outside the door. “Be Careful.”

Mothers of the world unite to remind their kids of safety, uttering a familiar phrase that children have heard to the point of nausea - a warning of potential danger that may occur when exiting the house. Wondering where you are and what you’re doing is a mother’s job and she’s on the clock 24/7. This Mother’s Day, it’s time to reward her motherly instinct with the gift of portable power.

Choosing portable power for this year’s gift is a win-win situation, extra power for your phone and added peace of mind for mom. Ease her mind for an extra hour daily with the Rayovac Phone Boost PS68. Instant cell phone power when you need it most, what more could a mother ask for.   More...

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...

  • Take the Mensa admission test
  • Listen to “Bohemian Rhapsody” 20 times
