Well now, I'm just about drooling over this new Smart charger. It has 3 new features that my current Energizer battery does not have.
A countdown clock with large LCD numbers displays how much charging time remains
A fuel gauge communicates the current level of power in the batteries
A bad-battery detector alerts users if the batteries are no longer useful or if they’ve inserted a disposable battery by mistake
To celebrate this new product, Energizer has come up with a great idea. An opportunity for their young customers to show their creativity and raise money for their favorite charity. Energizer wants to know what kind of mischief your kids get in when they're favorite battery powered toys are without battery power. If your kids are like mine, I bet they get into A LOT of mischief. Like oh I don't know......shooting themselves in the hand with a bb gun maybe? Still can't believe my son did that! If your kids do something as silly and hopefully not as dangerous, they could raise money for their favorite charity just by doing a 60 second video and uploading it to youtube. The first 250 submissions also get a free Energizer® Recharge Smart™ Charger of their own. The official rules can be found at the Energizer Kids Take Charge website, along with some sample videos.
As a bonus, Energizer has given me the opportunity to give one of my readers a Smart Charger of their very own. You can enter 2 ways.
