Summer is officially here and with it comes fun in the sun and water activities for all ages. With days of perfect weather in limited quantity, wasting the summer indoors is simply not acceptable. Take advantage of the warmest season of the year by spending some time outdoors and using the best gear available!
Gearing up for the summer means different things to different people. The prepared outdoor enthusiast knows the true meaning of ‘tactical’ gear. Transitioning from one activity to the next is typical for the outdoor adventurer (biking, hiking, swimming) and the items they carry need versatility. Whether on the trail or by the water, the all-new Indestructible Lantern and Spotlight duo from Rayovac are ready for action! More...

Rayovac wants to dedicate this blog post to all of the brave men and women who have served in the US military both past and present. Yet again the time has come to celebrate Memorial Day, a magnificent holiday marked by a 3-day weekend where US citizens come together and cherish the freedom provided by veterans.
Memorial Day weekend is a special time of year when you can rid yourself of all distractions and spend quality time with the ones you love. Seize the moment by making a family trip to the nearest campsite. A weekend away from responsibility may be just what you need to regain a little sanity. Remember the golden rule of camping? Be prepared. Pack the flashlights and power needed to light up your surroundings.
For some, camping is like therapy for the soul. The sanctuary known as the Great Outdoors is the perfect environment to toss aside your worries and bond with your family and Mother Nature. Unfortunately, 21st century gadgets can hold your family hostage by distracting their minds with relative ease. Items like cell phones, laptops and iPods are a nuisance to scheduled family time across the nation. More...

If a tree falls in a forest, and no one’s around to hear it—isn’t that a bummer? It could be the never-ending winter weather that’s been keeping nature-lovers at bay. But, hey, it’s almost that time of year when no fallen tree will go unheard. Camping season is just around the bend! Time to dust off the tent and camp stove, and if you haven’t already, make the switch to battery operated LED lights for your camping lights and lanterns. We’ve got you covered with our Value Camping Bundle:
Mini-Flashlight? Check! Our mini-flashlights feature high-performance battery-operated LED lights. In high-mode, you can cast a light up to 47 meters away. In low mode, you can cast a spooky glow on your face as you tell lame ghost stories. Water-resistant for when you lake-swim without emptying your pockets. Impact-resistant up to 9 feet for when you throw it because you can’t get the campfire started. Holster included, so you look like a total maverick.
Headlamp? Check! Our Virtually Indestructible headlamps contain our high-performance battery-operated LED lights. With custom optics and high-mode and low-mode settings, you can parade around the campsite looking like you’re special ops. This is the one to throw when you still can’t start that fire: Guaranteed for life, it has rubber shock absorbers and survived our 30-foot drop performance test. Comes with cloth and silicone head- straps. More...

Rayovac® and its virtually indestructible flashlight were recently apart of a test which had 4 different flashlight brands vying for title of toughest flashlight. Living up to its name, the virtually indestructible flashlight endured multiple abusive lab tests and passed each one with flying colors.
The prominent service magazine, Popular Mechanics, selected the indestructible to be one of four flashlights to undergo the abusive tests. They wanted to figure out which flashlight could sustain the most punishment and still keep its shape and brightness. The flashlights were then put through four different tests in order to prove their durability or lack there of. The tests included smashing the lights onto iron stakes, running them over with a car, dunking them into a lake for seven hours and dropping them from 25 feet in the air onto concrete.
After the tests were complete, the indestructible flexed it muscles and came out on top. It displayed incredible toughness by withstanding major punishment and refusing to relinquish its shine. Whether it was run over, drowned or repeatedly smashed like a hammer the indestructible flashlight proved to be ultra durable while also being extremely cost effective. More...
