Rayovac gave us Instant Power during a tornado & power outage! {New Power Packs!}

Last week, the kids and I were stranded right smack dab in the middle of the El Reno, Oklahoma tornadoes. Scared doesn’t even begin to describe the thoughts and feelings that were flowing through my body and through my kids’ minds. When we were alerted to evacuate our hotel rooms and head immediately to the storm shelter, one thing that I made sure to bring with us was our Rayovac Phone Boost, 2 & 7 hour power chargers. I am so glad I had them because we were in the storm shelter for a good three hours, and then when we were cleared to return back to our rooms, we were still out of power. My phone was slowly dying from searching for service, but I was able to randomly make short phone calls to loved ones and text very few people to let them know that we were ok, safe and unharmed. This was the day that I was able to really put Rayovac’s new products to good use.

I cannot begin to express how much I love this tiny thing. It has a lithium battery inside so it gives you plenty of charge. I used this to give myself a good half charge during the evacuation, and I still had power left to help someone else boost their phone so they could call home and contact loved ones. My only wish for this product would be to have some sort of rechargeable lithium battery verses the regular lithium battery.

This came in handy with the kids’ iPod. They were scared while we were in the storm shelter, but this little bad boy was charged and ready to use. When the kids’ iPod started draining power, we plugged it in so they were able to continue playing games and keeping their minds off the storm. What did we do without electronics when we were kids??

My SUV has USB outlets in it, but sometimes I need more. It seems that everything is powered by a USB cord of some sort. This is nice to have so we can use in the back outlet of the car for the kids’ electronics, or we can use in the front when the two main USB outlets are taken. Super small and easy to use.

When I travel, I always take along my Rayovac chargers. While I used them while randomly traveling, I never realized the importance that my phone was in emergencies until my babies and I were stranded, literally, stuck in a tornado with no form of power to communicate with loved ones. Shortly before we were out of power, I had packed an emergency bag that included some things for the kids to do including coloring books, colors, water, snacks, iPod/iPad, flashlight powered by Rayovac batteries & my 2 Hour Power, Phone Boost and 7 hour power. I was sharing power with anyone that needed it while we were in the storm shelter. By the end of the night, I had shared all my power, used what I had and still had plenty to go around should anyone need any power to call home.

Two words: Life. Saver.

Thank you to Rayovac for always being there for us when we need it, especially during the tornadoes in El Reno, OK last weekend!
