I love new electronic devices, I do.  There is always something new to try out, use to teach my kids something, something that I want because it just looks fun, and so on.  But I can not stand -whether it be a digital camera, or a popular electronic toy – changing the batteries ALL.THE.TIME!

Case in point.  We have a LeapPad .  We LOVE our LeapPad!  I have to limit the use of the LeapPad or my kids would be on it all day.  And if they were, I would be changing the batteries every day too.  And that is not cheap!  As it is, even with limited use, I feel like I have to change them anyway!

So when Energizer approached me to see if, in fact, their Ultimate Lithium Batteries really did last 9x longer than top brands, I stood at my door waiting for the package to arrive!

Here are some facts about the batteries that are quite impressive:

– they are the World’s longest lasting AA & AAA batteries in high-tech devices

– they are Lightweight – 33% Lighter than ordinary alkaline batteries

– they perform well in extreme temperatures (like Texas), from -40deg F to 140 deg F

– they Last up to 9x* longer in digital cameras for 9x less waste**

– they have a 15 Year Storage life (perfect for stocking up!)

*vs Energizer MAX, Results vary by camera

**less batteries = less waste

I immediately took out the batteries that I was praying would last one more hour and replaced them with the Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries and noted the day I did so.

May 17, if you care.

I let the kids play normally and realized that when they did not bring it to me on the second or third day to change the batteries, I was starting to get a little excited!  In fact, with regular play, I have STILL not had to replace the batteries in the LeapPad and it has been over 2 WEEKS!

I am not kidding!  If the theory that it last 9x longer holds out, I will enjoy another 4- 5 weeks before I have to change them!  Do you know how incredibly amazing that would be?

Now I am all excited and heading over to Energizer’s Review and Reward page!  I am going to enter my email and name and add a quick RAVE review!  When I do this, I am entered to WIN an Energizer Ultimate Lithium Prize Pack!
