A Million Duracell Quantum Batteries Donated to Power Equipment for Quantum Heroes & Other First Responders #MC

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Duracell. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

It is amazing how much batteries have become part of our lives. I think I have come to this same revelation over and over for decades. Still, our use and dependence continually grows and it does not look like it will change anytime soon. What is changing, however, is the quality and performance of the batteries we use.

I can’t even count how many devices in our home require batteries, if it was 100 or more I would not be surprised in the least. For many of those devices that require batteries, performance is not that big of a deal to me. The battery-powered jet fighter with lights and sounds that gets played with once every two months can use cheap batteries or, better yet, partially used batteries. For frequently used items, such as remote controls, our children's tablets, wireless mice, cordless headphones, and compact cameras, only a high performance battery will do.

Devices like alarms, smoke and Co2 detectors, flashlights, and high-powered electronics most definitely deserve a good battery, or even the best available. Learning the low quality of your batteries after the power goes out is a problem that most of us have experienced at one time or another.

Ideally we would all use rechargeable batteries, but rechargeable batteries require us to manage their charge at all times. I simply do not have time for that kind of chore in my life at the moment, especially with the sheer volume of batteries I would have to manage. The ideal battery is one that is powerful and holds its charge for a long time.

The new Duracell Quantum battery line does just that. The Quantum battery is the longest lasting battery on the market today. The core of the battery is denser than any other, allowing a long life of use. The Duracell Quantum’s PowerCheck indicator lets you to see exactly how much power is remaining. There is no more wondering if your battery has enough power for the task, it is right on the battery.

If you think your battery needs are demanding, imagine the battery needs of emergency personnel. Duracell donated one million batteries to first responders across North America this year to power their critical and life-saving equipment. Duracell also created the Quantum Heroes video series hosted by Tim McGraw on YouTube, which highlights all the wonderful things emergency personnel and first responders do for us every day. You can see the series here.

Make sure your critical electronics and tools have the best battery right now, because the next time you think about it, it may be too late.  Just look for the signature red color of Duracell Quantum batteries.
