The Rayovac Emergency 2 Hour Power comes ready-to-use and provides a mobile
phone with two additional hours of talk time for those unexpected emergencies.
Having eliminated the outlet from the charging equation, Rayovac has
successfully created a portable charging product that can rescue any mobile
device from a dead battery. The Rayovac Emergency 2 Hour Power mobile charging
device, which has a shelf life of 10 years, provides instant power to Apple
and Micro USB mobile devices.

Rayovac has addressed all of the inconveniences associated with the use of
traditional rechargeable batteries with the launch of the Rayovac 15-Minute
Battery Charger. The IC3 rechargeable system can hold up to four batteries per
use and charges both AA and AAA batteries. Batteries are fully charged in 15
minutes flat – the fastest charger on the market. The Rayovac 15- Minute
Battery Charger was designed with the consumer in mind.

“At Rayovac, we have built our success on combining innovative technologies to
develop products that make our customers’ lives easier,” said Harrison Smiddy,
Senior Director of Marketing at Rayovac. “We are honored to be selected by the
CEA for this prestigious award, highlighting our commitment to provide
first-of-a-kind portable chargers that help our customers stay connected via
their most important devices.”

The Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer
Electronics Association (CEA)^®, the producer of the International CES, the
global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer
technology, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and
engineering since 1976.

The Rayovac Emergency 2 Hour Power mobile charger and the Rayovac 15-Minute
Battery Charger will be displayed in The Venetian at the 2014 International
CES, which runs January 7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will also be
displayed at CES Unveiled: The Official Media Event of the International CES
from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 5 in South Seas Ballroom C at Mandalay Bay
