Batteries and charging devices seem to go with any holiday or occasion, once you have kids. Ha! Realistically, it’s an everyday part of life for anyone, am I right?! Well, now that school season is here, Duracell has a ton of products to ensure that all your devices are ready right when you need them. For instance, I am really happy to have received a Duracell Instant Charger. Not only is it a handy portable solution to power up a USB powered devices on the go – yet it does so in wicked time too.
The Instant Charger has a 1150mAh Lithium-ion battery which packs a punch when it comes to charging. Used with an iPhone, iPod, Motorola or BlackBerry, it conveniently charges through your laptop or computer’s USB port and fits most mini-USB powered devices. So, you charge it by way of your laptop – then you can charge your devices when you want to. The easy on/off switch allows it to be used for the devies at any time too. Personally, I hate having to have so many cords on hand, for all our devices. Yet, I always have my laptop handy, so it utilizes the one thing I always have with me, and cuts out the need to carry extras. Very convenient and practical!
What about when you don’t have your laptop and are in the car? The Duracell Mobile Charger includes a car adaptor and 2AA and 2AAA batteries, This is perfect for car trips, since we all know how much those gaming and music devices eat up batter power! Ease those long hours while traveling with a portable charger!
And for those devices like cameras a controllers that seem to always needs charging – look to the Duracell GoEasy Charger. The main feature that I like about this one is that it’s compact. So even to take when on the go, is no hassle. It also comes with 2AA rechargeable Duracell batteries And in my opinion, the more the merrier!! My goal is to switch all the batteries we use, to rechargeables. So, I love that these chargers come with re-charged batteries!
A new Duracell Back-to-School survey illustrates how education-related costs are clearly on the minds of many parents as the new school year approaches. With more than half of parents surveyed (56%) said they expect to spend over $250 on back-to-school shopping. Clothes make up the largest overall share of back-to-school spending at 40%, while school supplies, books and electronics account for 51% of anticipated expenses.
So, if you thought that those pencils and paper took a huge chunk out of the back-to-school fund, think again. Compared to the cost of other portable charging devices, the Duracell Instant Charger is a welcome frugal expense! And, if you like to save even more, make sure to get your Duracell Coupons to use this back-to-school season!!
