Rayovac Power Protect

Amusement park crowds can be overwhelming and swarms of people can make it easy to lose sight of your little one. The Rayovac Power Protect can help. The Power Protect is a small cylindrical phone charger that has a built-in flashlight and a 100 decibel emergency alarm. The device is similar in size and shape to a small can of pepper spray, and it has a ring at the top that acts like a panic button.  Pulling the ring causes an attention-snatching alarm to erupt and should draw the notice of any passerby. The safety siren is even audible from 200 yards away*. To deactivate the personal alarm, press the power button or snap the ring back to its original setting. The Power Protect was designed for anyone who wants a sense of personal safety.Giving one to your child in case of an emergency will ensure that you (or security) find them fast in any crowded, noisy environment. *varies by geography and environmental conditions. 

Handheld fan

Amusement parks come in all shapes, sizes and have plenty of different attractions. But one thing is unanimous among them all — long lines. Fall weather can be unpredictable no matter where you live in the country, and standing in line in  sweltering heat can be miserable. But sSomething simple like a battery-powered handheld fan can make the lines much more bearable. Snag yourself a fresh pack of Rayovac’s alkaline batteries, and enjoy the cool breeze and slight mist from your handheld fan. Just make sure your kids don’t forget theirs on the ride!

Portable phone charger

The first time your child rides a rollercoaster is priceless. The look of exhilaration, fear and joy that flow across their face is something you won’t soon forget. And because of smartphones and social media, it’s a sight your friends and family won’t forget either. But chances are you’ll be taking a lot of photos and videos of the family’s escapade throughout the park which drains phone batteries fast. Just be sure to toss one of Rayovac’s portable phone chargers in your bag, and you’ll never have to miss capturing those goofy, gleeful smiles.

Digital camera for kids

One of the best things about being a kid in an amusement park is the sense of wonder and amazement at your surroundings. Everything in the park is typically so huge and foreign to a child: rollercoasters, fun houses, prize games and costumed staff members. Letting your child have a kid-friendly digital camera is a great way to see the park through their eyes, and encourage them to pay attention to their surroundings. You can find rechargeable lithium-ion cameras and battery-powered options, too. Rayovac’s rechargeable batteries last up to 4X longer in digital cameras than their alkaline battery cousins.

Why We Built the Rayovac Power Protect

by rayovac3, August 2016

Rayovac Power Protect portable charger with a personal alarmAt Rayovac, we want to be a source of power in your life. And sometimes that means empowering you, your friends or your loved ones to avoid being the victim of a violent crime or robbery. Our headquarters is in Madison, Wisconsin, a bustling college town, and within the last few years we’ve been deeply troubled by the news of people—particularly women—who have been attacked late at night when they are out jogging or walking alone. These crimes must stop. To help our fellow Madisonians—and people everywhere—create a sense of personal security, Rayovac has developed the Power Protect, a portable phone charger with a built-in personal safety alarm.

The Rayovac Power Protect is a small cylindrical phone charger that includes a flashlight and a 100 decibel emergency siren (the loudest sound level the ear can handle before creating damage). The device looks a bit like a small can of pepper spray, but it has a ring at the top that acts like a panic button.  Pulling the ring free of the charger causes an ear-piercing alarm to erupt and should scare off attackers, give you enough of a distraction to escape or beckon aid from people passing nearby. The safety siren is audible from 200 yards away*. To deactivate the safety alarm, press the power button or snap the ring back to its original setting.

The device has a 2,200 mAh battery that will offer most phones between half and two-thirds to a full charge. And you’ll never need to worry about monitoring your discharge percentage to preserve the safety siren because the Power Protect automatically stops distributing electricity at 20 percent capacity. That amount is permanently set aside in reserve to operate the alarm so it’s always usable.

The Power Protect comes in three colors, and is small enough to easily fit inside a backpack, purse or clip onto your person. Visit Rayovac.com to order a Power Protect, and take peace of mind—for your phone battery and yourself—with you on your next evening adventure.
