I participated in this program on behalf of Energizer and The Motherhood. All opinions are 100% mine.
Ahhh, summer. No school, days spent at the beach and evenings spent in the backyard playing flashlight tag with friends until our cheeks hurt from laughing. These are the memories that will last for a lifetime. Does life get any better?
At our house we play a lot of flashlight tag. Summer isn’t official until we have ventured into the yard at night armed with our light beams of fun. We have a whole collection of flashlights in various shapes, sizes and colors. The kids all have their favorite one and keeping them all in working order is, of course, my job as the mom. As I grabbed the big box out of the closet, I noticed some sort of weird spots on the bottom of it. UGH!!! Anybody have an idea of what might have happened?
Apparently I had forgotten to remove the batteries from the flashlights from the summer before and some of them had an ooze drizzling from the inside of the battery compartment. The kids were devastated. They had waited for months for this opportunity. How had I let this happen? I was always so careful! #$@% those leaky batteries. I promised my precious children and their friends that Flashlight Tag would resume ASAP.
The next day I forked over a small fortune to replace at least some of our flashlight collection and started to share my sad story with the clerk at the store. She looked at me like I was off my rocker. She was all, “why don’t you get some Energizer MAX batteries with Power Seal Technology,” and stop your whining (she didn’t really say this but her face did, lol). I said, “of course I’m going to get those.” To be honest, I had no clue what the heck she was talking about. I headed to the internet to find out what I was missing out on.
Ding, Ding, Ding, Winner!! I found out Energizer, is solving for this decades-old, industry-wide issue with Energizer® MAX® with Power Seal technology. This innovative battery outperforms leading competitors and gives moms (and KIDS) peace of mind that their devices won’t fall victim to damaging leaks, which can occur when batteries are left in your flashlight (or toys and other electronic devices for that matter). Whew! Exactly, the solution I was looking for!!
Don’t be fooled like I was by these myths!
Myth #1: Batteries only leak after they are left in a device for too long.
False! In reality, batteries can leak at any time.
Myth #2: Batteries only leak after all the power is used up.
False! Batteries can leak at any time, regardless of whether they still have power.
Myth #3: Storing batteries in the refrigerator or freezer helps prevent leakage.
False! The way batteries are stored has no impact on their likelihood of leaking.
Myth #4: Some battery chemistries are more likely to leak than others.
True! Not all batteries were created equal. Energizer MAX alkaline batteries are sure to protect your devices from damaging leaks. Guaranteed.*see link for details.
Kids love their stuff, and moms know firsthand how devastating it can be when a favorite item is lost or broken. Don’t be like me and let your batteries render your favorite toys unusable. Be the smartest mom on the block and make sure to use Energizer MAX alkaline batteries in all your flashlights and devices.
