Considering it only takes one glance around our house to find a long list of toys, electronics, gadgets and more that are powered by batteries of all shapes and sizes, oftentimes I don't blame them for thinking that the rest of the world is run by these small, magic cylinders as well.
However, my chuckling at their childlike innocence only goes so far... because the hassle of picking up a remote control, camera or toy car and finding that it doesn't work yet again often has me gritting my teeth. Who wants to spend their time, energy and far too much money having to constantly change batteries?
Fortunately, Energizer has eliminated much of the chore of replacing batteries with their newly improved, long-lasting Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries.
After receiving an upgrade this spring, Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries now last up to 9x longer in digital cameras (previously 8x longer), when compared to Energizer MAX AA batteries. These improvements also translate to extended performance in other high tech devices like photo flashes, video recorders, GPS units, game console controllers, flashlights and headlights.
Even better? 9x longer translates to 9x less waste. So you're not only saving time and money, but you're helping reduce the number of batteries that your home discards each year. You just can't go wrong!
When it came time to put our Ultimate Lithium batteries to the test to see if they really would last longer, I immediately knew where they would go. First, for the kids:
The girls have a variety of handheld games, but this one in particular seems to be forever needing new batteries. Whether they are playing separately or together, the call of Mama! This game doesn't work anymore! is heard at least once a month. The worst is when we've brought the game with us to help pass the time waiting at swim lessons or for an appointment and it won't turn on!
Now that we have replaced the previous batteries with Energizer Ultimate Lithium, we haven't had an issue since! The game still shows that it has full power and I love knowing that we can grab this and go and not worry that it won't work or will run out of juice after a few minutes.
Along with the kids' game, I had my sights set on a device of my own to try out these new batteries:
After having made the switch to a cordless mouse a few years ago, I'm hooked. I just can't go back to the restrictions of having a cord in the way all the time after having been freed from it! However, one of my biggest pet peeves is when I'm in the middle of typing and go to move the mouse... and the cursor stays still. Argh!
After switching to an Ultimate Lithium battery, I have yet to experience a dead mouse since — the first battery is still going strong!
Energizer has been a leader in battery innovation for more than half a century and continues to deliver the performance improvements consumers have come to expect. By re-tooling the formula of the Ultimate Lithium batteries (including improved materials and construction), Energizer has once again proven that they are committed to providing only the very best.
If you are looking for the world's longest lasting AA and AAA batteries for your high-tech devices, these are lightweight, perform well in extreme temperatures and last up to 9x longer in gadgets such as your digital camera. Retailing for $9.99 for a 4-pack, the Ultimate Lithium batteries do cost a few dollars more than the original, but are worth it for the superior quality and longer amount of time that they last.
And, thanks to the generosity of Energizer, one person will be able to find out for themselves just how powerful these batteries truly are, because...
