7 Hours of Rechargeable and Reusable Power
With the unlimited capabilities of today’s handheld devices, it has become increasingly challenging to keep devices up and running all day long.

The 7 Hour Power Recharge is powered by four AA batteries of any cell chemistry, providing instant, outlet-free power to any mobile phone and other USB powered devices. Use alkaline batteries that have a 10-year shelf life, or rechargeable batteries that can be used over and over. After 30 seconds of inactivity, the device will automatically turn off to save battery power. The 7 Hour Power Recharge mobile device charger has an MSRP of $19.99.
Give Your Phone a Boost with 150 Minutes of Talk Time
Rayovac’s Phone Boost 800 mobile device charger offers robust power and performance providing instant power for Micro USB, Apple 30-pin and Apple LightningTM devices. The charger, which can be attached to a ring of keys, utilizes a lithium ion rechargeable battery that holds 800mAh of power to recharge a mobile phone for 150 minutes of additional talk time. The Phone Boost 800 can be recharged and used over and over again to power mobile phones, digital cameras, portable gaming devices, MP3 players, and more. The Phone Boost 800 mobile charging device has an MSRP of $19.99 (micro USB), $19.99 (Apple 30-pin), and $24.99 (Apple LightningTM).
Power up Your Electronic Devices
Rayovac’s Power Packs are sleek and small and have been designed with the utmost functionality in mind. The 2000mAh power pack has enough capacity to give your smart phone up to a full charge. Not enough? Upgrade to the 6000mAh power pack and be set to charge your smart phone up to three full times. Easily storable, the rugged, durable and water resistant power packs can recharge mobile devices in any situation and can be recharged. Similar to Rayovac’s other improved mobile charging devices, the power packs include an LED battery gauge indicator that displays the charge and discharge status. Rayovac’s Power Packs have an MSRP of $29.99 (2000mAh) and $49.99 (6000mAh).
Double Up on Power in the Car and at Home
