Thank you to Energizer for sponsoring this post and providing batteries. The honest opinions are my own.
One year at Christmas, it seemed every single toy Kora & Logan excitedly opened required batteries. Dave went over to our battery drawer and found it empty. We both kicked ourselves for not thinking to stock up ahead of time. The next year Dave got smart and not only stocked up but put batteries on our Christmas wish list. Our relatives bought them for us and it was wonderful opening those gifts knowing we would have batteries for any toys that needed them that Christmas as well as for months to come.
I think back to this often and whenever I’m chatting with parents of young kids around the holidays I make sure to remind them to stock up on batteries, so when they see “batteries not included” on their children’s gifts it won’t dampen their holiday cheer.
That’s why I’m excited that Energizer sent over some Energizer Max Batteries.
I was interested to learn that they last up to 30% longer than previous Energizer Max batteries in digital cameras. They are also designed to protect devices and toys from damaging leaks for up to two years after the battery is fully used. Also Energizer Max AA and AAA batteries hold power for up to 10 years while in storage, so they can be used whenever you need them.
Energizer conducted a survey that found 90% of Americans have forgotten batteries for a holiday gift in the past.
The study also revealed that 44% of consumers take batteries out of other devices to use them in a holiday gift, if they forgot to purchase batteries at the store.
The holidays can get pricey and I was happy to see that Energizer has a helpful Hot Holiday Offers site where you can find Energizer promotions based on where you like shop and what types of batteries you need.
Energizer Max batteries are great to have on hand for the holidays, providing high tech toys and gadgets with long lasting power and leak protection. When you are buying your holiday gifts don’t forget to grab some Energizer Max batteries too so your holidays will be spent sharing smiles and making memories with your family rather than running to the store.
