MIDDLETON, Wis. -- March 19, 2014

Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:SPB), a global consumer products company
with market-leading brands, announced today that its Rayovac® battery division
has added two new products to its family of Virtually Indestructible Lights.
Celebrating 100 years as a leading brand in the portable lighting marketplace,
Rayovac has broadened its reach within the outdoor market and has enhanced its
current series with the introduction of the Virtually Indestructible
Sportsman^TM Spotlight and  the Virtually Indestructible Sportsman^TM Lantern.

Boasting innovative designs and technologies, each new product in Rayovac’s
line achieves consumers’ three most-wanted attributes: brightness, durability
and value. Rugged and durable, these lights are water resistant and achieve
extreme brightness up to 500 lumens. Complete with a lifetime warranty,
Rayovac’s Virtually Indestructible Spotlight and Lantern have been tested to
withstand drops of up to 15 feet.

“We’re proud to offer our customers a broadened family of products they can
rely on,” said Harrison Smiddy, Senior Director of Global Product Marketing at
Rayovac. “The addition of the Lantern and Spotlight to Rayovac’s Virtually
Indestructible lighting series makes the product line even more dynamic,
outputting more lumens and offering more applications for outdoor activities.
The virtually indestructible design of these lights provides consumers with a
long-term solution.”

The Virtually Indestructible Sportsman™ Spotlight is a must-have for
activities like camping, hiking, fishing and hunting. The multi-use lighting
device offers three light modes -- high, medium or low -- and provides 500
lumens. Completely submersible, the virtually indestructible spotlight can be
submerged into one meter of water and remain waterproof for up to 30 minutes.
The spotlight comes with six AA alkaline batteries, which provide a 10 hour
runtime so it will keep up with users, no matter what the application.
Complete with a lifetime warranty, Rayovac’s Virtually Indestructible
Spotlight has an MSRP of $39.99.

The Virtually Indestructible Sportsman™ Lantern is the perfect companion for
the outdoor enthusiast. The 400 Lumen High Performance LED can be placed into
three light modes: high, medium or low. Running on three D alkaline batteries,
this lantern has up to a 280 hour battery runtime, providing a long-lasting
and reliable source of light for any outdoor application. The compact design
and convenient handle allows for easy use while the shatterproof lens and
reflector make this product virtually indestructible. Complete with a lifetime
warranty, Rayovac’s Virtually Indestructible Lantern has an MSRP of $29.99.

“What sets Rayovac’s Lighting series apart from similar products is the value,
coupled with the high level of lumens achieved by each light. Additionally,
the virtual indestructibility of these products makes Rayovac a top player in
this market,” said Smiddy. “Most competitors claim drop-tests of 3 feet for
their flashlights. But Rayovac has achieved virtual indestructibility by
drop-testing these lights up to 30 feet, making them rugged, durable and
long-lasting products.”

Rayovac’s Virtually Indestructible Lighting series includes flashlights,
headlights, lanterns and spotlights in both a Sportsman™ line and an
Industrial Grade line.
