Kids Take Charge and a Giveaway

ENERGIZER has been doing so many great things lately and I have another great program to tell you about this morning.

ENERGIZER is introducing the new ENERGIZER RECHARGE SMART CHARGER by getting people like you involved in a video campaign to drive donations to their favorite charity.  The “Kids Take Charge” video campaign asks families across the country to post a video of their child explaining the mischief they can get into when the toys that keep them occupied run out of battery power.  The top ten creative entries will receive a portion of the $10,000 donation – based on an online poll – for their charity.  Parents can get inspiration from the online ad campaign by viewing kids talking about having tantrums to telling some family secrets, each closing with a “Try the Smart Charger….or Else” message.  These videos can be viewed at

The first 250 people to enter a video will receive a free ENERGIZER RECHARGE SMART CHARGER.  ENERGIZER will select ten finalists based on originality, humor, and alignment with the “Kids Take Charge or Else” Theme.  Consumers can help determine the amount of money each charity receives by voting for their favorite at The funds will be allocated based on the percentage of views that each video receives.  All videos must be entered before May 17, 2010.

This new ENERGIZER RECHARGE SMART CHARGER can make your lives easier by making sure your cameras, hand held gaming systems, toys, flashlights, radios, baby swings, etc are always charged and ready to go.
The new ENERGIZER RECHARGE SMART CHARGER was developed in response to consumer interest. Consumers wanted to know the charging status of their batteries and if they will last for as long as needed.  This new SMART CHARGER has
-A countdown clock with large LCD numbers to show how much charging time remains. 
-A fuel gauge showing the current level of power in the batteries.
-A bad-battery detector to alert you if the battery is no longer useful.

There is nothing more frustrating than taking my camera to a sporting event for my kids and finding the batteries die after the first picture.  This charger helps me know more about the charging process of the batteries.  This new charger also has a slower charge rate which extends the number of life cycles of the battery.  Typical charges can take approximately 6 hours.  This charger also allows you to charge AAA or AA batteries and either 2 or 4 of them.  This SMART CHARGER is available now at all major retailers for $19.99.


Lucky for you, I have one ENERGIZER RECHARGE SMART CHARGER to give away to one of my readers.  I have been very happy with mine and I know you are going to love it too!
