Do you have children? Do they have toys? Then you know the importance of batteries. Before my son was born, 29 months ago, I never would have imagined how important batteries would become in our household, or that at the tender age of two, he would know where the battery compartment on a toy was and be able to point to it and say, “Need new battery.”
Just this morning, we are experiencing a meltdown because the battery on his RC car is dead. Oh now, how terrible is that?
In case you haven’t heard, Energizer launched a “Kids Take Charge” video campaign asking 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 – www.energizer.com/recharge. The first 250 to enter will receive a brand NEW Energizer Smart Charger. Ten video finalists will be chosen and then they will pick a charity of their choice to have a portion of $10,000 that Energizer will be donating to the charities. The more views the finalist’s video gets, the bigger the percentage of the donation the finalist’s charity will receive. The process is very simple and you get a FREE Charger just for entering!
HOW TO ENTER (please note—the video contest ends 05/17/10)
1. Film a video – 60 seconds or less – of your child explaining what happens when their toy runs out of battery power (have fun with it!)
2. Include why the Smart Charger is a good way to keep batteries charged and toys working, or show a “Take Charge or Else” sign like the one in the video (download it here or get creative and make one yourself)
3. Upload your video to www.youtube.com and include #recharge in the title
4. Click on the ENTER HERE on www.energizer.com/recharge and enter the required information
More about the Energizer® Recharge Smart™ Charger
Energizer developed a charger that delivers on consumer demand by communicating information about rechargeable batteries and the charging process in three ways:
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
It will be available this spring at national retailers for an MSRP of $19.99.
