There are things that you need in life – food, water, shelter, fresh air and batteries. Yes, I said it – batteries! OK, so they are not as important as the other things I listed, but they are important in their own way.
Think about everything in your home that need batteries. Some might be traditional batteries (like in a cell phone or iPad), but they are batteries none-the-less. Remote controls, phones, toys, cameras, flashlights, flameless candles… there are so many things that require batteries.
I try and keep a stock pile of different kinds of batteries just to be on the safe side. I always have AA batteries on hand for my camera. I’m always taking pictures for personal or blogging reasons. If my camera doesn’t have good batteries it doesn’t work properly and my pictures turn out horribly.
I almost always have Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries handy. Not only are they in my camera but I also keep a spare set or two in my camera bag. If they are not the Ultimate Lithium then they are Advanced Lithium (I use either one of them).
I prefer to use the the Energizer Ultimate Lithium for my digital camera for one major reason – they last up to nine times longer than other batteries, even Energizers own Max AA batteries. That means I can use my camera for a longer time then I would other batteries. The less batteries I have to replce the more cost effective it is. When you live on a budget where ever penny counts you try your best to find products that last longer so they don’t have to be replaced as often.
Another plus is that the less batteries you need to buy the less batteries end up in landfills.
I do use Energizer rechargable batteries in many devices that we own. I found that I can’t use them in my digital camera because they run out too quickly. They are better for the kid’s toys, games and the TV remote. Plus it’s hard to recharge them when you are out and about where as the TV remote is not going to leave our home so I can easily charge it when the battery runs out.
To help show you the power of Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries I have 2 4-packs (AA) I can give to a lucky reader (8 batteries in total).
