Is your child ready for back to school? Did classes already start? Asking your student when school starts is a risky proposition because odds are they won’t tell the truth. Back to school means the end of summer and no more sleeping in. A back to school countdown is a ticking clock that your child wants no part of. A cool parent knows how to spin this in their favor. Remind your child of all the new gadgets they’ll get with one trip to the store. Score one for the parents.
Likely your task for the upcoming weekend, buying school supplies is a late August tradition. Remember when all you needed was paper, a pencil, and an eraser? Those days are long gone. With today’s fast-paced learning environment, high tech devices are becoming more and more important. Technology in the classroom is the new normal and interactive learning is the future of education. Use this as a reminder to find a store and pick up some high tech school supplies. More...

For the average consumer, the storage life of an alkaline battery has yet to crack the list of top priorities when making a battery purchase. The normal list of priorities currently includes price, brand, convenience and appearance. Becoming more familiar with the benefits of battery storage life, consumers are starting to realize that it’s far more important than what they first perceived. A decades worth of battery freshness has slowly but surely caught the attention of selective consumers.
Storage life has always been a strong suit for alkaline batteries. They have proven themselves to be the smart battery choice for consumers because they last for long periods of time and perform well at high and low temperatures. Many products that are purchased by consumers have expiration dates that are woefully short. This has conditioned the consumer to think that every product they buy will expire on short notice. But with the creation of new alkaline technology, Rayovac has made storage life and battery freshness a top priority.
As of late, there has been a growing attention to coupons and the way consumers use them to maximize their savings. This new wave of coupon lovers are storming the local supermarkets and buying products like alkaline batteries in bulk. This is where storage life of an alkaline battery becomes a top priority. Families place the surplus batteries into designated storage areas and only use them when needed. Consumers like this depend on the fact that Rayovac batteries can stay fresh in their storage closets for close to a decade.
As new technologies develop, the demand for reliable alkaline power is steadily increasing. Rayovac takes pride in providing reliable power in every battery it produces. It’s clear that having prolonged storage life will enhance an alkaline battery and short expiration dates were never Rayovac’s style. 10 years of battery freshness is the gold standard that Rayovac brings to the table. So next time your at the store to buy batteries, be sure to make storage life a top priority. As you can see it makes a huge difference!

In recent years, cochlear implants have become more common for infants and toddlers who are experiencing moderate to severe hearing loss. As a company that manufactures the cochlear battery, we have successfully stayed on the forefront of progress regarding this technology. It’s been amazing, and we’re proud to power it.
Cochlear implants are very different from hearing aids. First off, they do not amplify sound. Instead they bypass the damaged anatomy in the ear and directly stimulate the auditory nerve. The results can be phenomenal, but can vary from person to person. Just imagine going from near deaf to hearing in a matter of weeks.
Speech, language, and social skills are deeply interwoven and strongly related to hearing. When a child can hear well, the brain normally develops these skills organically, weaving billions of pieces of auditory input into basic skills we all use. Of course, kids with severe hearing impairment find other routes to develop these skills, but it’s a climb, rather than a cruise, for many of them.
Children as young as 12 months of age can undergo cochlear implant surgery. It generally takes between two and five hours and the benefits of the surgery will begin to arrive four to six weeks later. Though not every child is a candidate. If a child can benefit from a hearing aid, for example, that child is unlikely to qualify for a cochlear implant. Pediatric audiologists conduct the assessments to determine who qualifies. More...
