Rayovac Redefines Mobile Charging Category with 2-Hour Power

Rayovac 2 Hour Power

Rayovac 2 Hour Power

As smartphones advance it seems there are fewer and fewer things to complain about – they are fast, responsive, thin and light, feature-filled, and the batteries … ok, so there is still one thing to complain about. Because with new features and more powerful chips, advances in battery technology have merely managed to maintain the status quo.

So what do we do? Many have battery cases which are phone specific, and I also have a few external battery packs I can connect with a cable to my phone. These are great solutions, but can run into a fair amount of money, require cables and outlets to keep them charged, and device specificity means extra cables or buying a new charger if you get a new phone!

Rayovac has a new idea – 2-Hour Power. Rather than a full 200+mAh charge that costs upwards of $100, 2-Hour Power has a MSRP of $8.99. Part of this is a change in focus. The 2-Hour Power comes all set to use, and is powered by a single CR123A battery. Think of it as an emergency backup – this isn’t something to keep you going during general use, but instead something to have in your purse or backpack ‘just in case’.

If you need more than 2-hours, Rayovac also offers a 7-hour charging solution. Using four AA batteries, the 7-Hour Back-Up Power Pack can fully recharge your phone quickly in the event of power loss. Rayovac is also introducing the Phone Boost Keychain Charger and portable USB Car & Wall Chargers.

Head to Rayovac to get more info, and look for the 2-Hour Power instant charging device in retailers everywhere this summer.

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
