Beware. The weatherman is not your friend. A real friend wouldn’t lie to you half the time and think it’s OK. Best to trust your own judgment and prepare for whatever Mother Nature throws at you. A piece of solid advice would be to pack a storm preparedness kit just in case. And lucky for you, Rayovac has mastered the art of making batteries, flashlights, lanterns and portable power that can help you weather any storm!
Sure, the weatherman has the gizmos and gadgets to predict the weather with near accuracy, but in the end it’s just an educated guess.

A month filled with storms is nothing to joke about. April weather can be dangerous and having a storm kit handy is the only way to protect your power and keep your family safe. Rayovac’s full line of flashlights feature battery operated LED's and general-purpose lights that come in handy in a pinch. Ten times more trustworthy than your average weatherperson, the LED 3AAA Glow In The Dark Flashlight lights up the room and helps you see where you’re going. More...
