In the age of streaming, it’s rare that we sit down as a family and watch a show together but one of our new favorite shows is The Good Doctor. This drama centers around a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome named Shaun Murphy. Fellow fans will recall how he met his neighbor. Much like neighbors borrow a cup of sugar or power tools, Shaun’s neighbor knocked to borrow batteries when her gaming console’s controller died mid-game. It was a charming moment in the show but for those of us who have ever had batteries die in the middle of battle or trying to beat our best score, time, or friend, this is anything but amusing!
Whether you’re a pro-gamer competing in a tournament or you like to casually play against friends or family at home, there’s nothing worse than losing power in your gaming device or controller. It’s absolutely maddening to stop game play to fetch new batteries. Even though we have some holidays to make our way through before the new year begins, it’s not too early to resolve to change your habits. Here are four reasons to invest in high quality batteries for work, play, and home and why you should switch to Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries.
4 Reasons to Buy High Quality Batteries
They Last Longer
As tempting as it is to want to pinch pennies when it comes to batteries, not all batteries are created equal. High-use gaming controllers such as Wii and Xbox models tend to drain batteries quickly so it’s important to use a high quality battery that features long-lasting reliability. Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries are the #1 longest-lasting AAs on the market and will help you maintain peak performance so your gaming session will stay strong until the end.
More Reliable Performance
While you may not be gaming in extreme temperatures, it helps to have high quality batteries on hand that perform well regardless if you’re using them for work, play, or home. Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries work at a range of -40ºF to 140ºF so you can always count on them to perform reliably, regardless if you’re using them in a flashlight on a winter camping trip, to power smart door locks that are hit with bright sun during the day, or regulating your home’s temperature with a wireless thermostat.
Guaranteed to be Leak Proof
Chances are you’ve opened up a battery compartment to change the batteries and been surprised to find a crusty, white mess. According to Why Do Batteries Leak? from Consumer Reports, the liquid electrolyte in batteries can leak out of the insulating seals at the ends or if the outer steel canister rusts and corrodes. The white powder is potassium carbonate and can adversely affect the performance of your device.
Energizer batteries are designed to prevent damaging leaks and while their high quality batteries come with a No Leak Guarantee, Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ are guaranteed not to leak. According to Energizer, their Ultimate Lithium™ line contains advanced technology that ensures will not leak under normal consumer usage but if you believe you have a leaky one, they encourage you to contact 1-800-383-7323 for return instructions.
Contribute Less Waste to the Environment
Batteries that last longer and are guaranteed not to leak need to be replaced less so using AA Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries means needing fewer, creating less waste, and reducing your impact on the planet. They’re also 33% lighter than other alkalines.
Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries are great for gaming but they’re also highly versatile. Here’s a look at other top uses for Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries for work, play, and home:
- Photography – high drain digital cameras and flash units that use a lot of power
- On the Job – stud finders, laser levels and high power LED lighting
- Home Safety – up to 10 years of battery backup power for 9V and AA smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
- Toys – remote control toys, motorized toys, project kits and your kids’ favorite toys they just can’t get enough of!
- Gaming – for high-use/high-drain game controllers such as Wii and Xbox
- Outdoors – camping gear, GPS units, flashlights, hunting scopes and lasers
Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ Batteries are must-haves for your home and one can see why Dr. Shaun Murphy asked his neighbor for his batteries back towards the end of The Good Doctor episode. They must have been Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™!
