Surviving Post-Grad Life

Now that it’s almost June, many seniors have graduated from college and are heading out into the world on their own for the first time. While living on your own without mom or dad may seem a bit daunting, we here at Battery Junction can help you out!

Cooking

Possibly the biggest challenge you will face is having to cook on your own.  It’s Monday afternoon, you have run out of food in your apartment, and you realize that you need to take a trip to the store or risk starvation. After you’ve mentally psyched yourself up to go grocery shopping, you go to take your bike out when you realize just how dark it’s gotten. It’s not safe to ride your bike now, you don’t have reflective clothing! If only you could light up your bike so cars would see you. Good thing you have your SpokeLit LED attachable bike lights! Cars can now easily spot you down the road. You can now take that much needed trip to the store and successfully line your shelves with the proper amount of snacks, pasta, chicken, and TV dinners.

Going Out

It’s Friday night and you’re ready to explore your new city. After checking out the latest yelp reviews on a restaurant down the block that you’ve been eyeing, you decide to call a friend to grab a nice dinner. You deserve it from all of the cooking you did this week. Putting together your best outfit, you are about to walk out the door when you steal one last glance at yourself in the mirror. “I look fantastic,” you say, grinning, as you give yourself one last look over. Your eyes come to a rest on your ears. The smile slides off your face as you realize just how dull your jewelry looks in the light. You’re already running late so you quickly remove your earrings and head out, upset that your perfectly composed outfit didn’t work out. Don’t let your night get ruined again. Always look your best and get the GemOro Sparkle Spa Pro! With the cleanest and shiniest jewelry, you’ll be the talk of the city!

Staying In

One of life’s greatest tests is having to make the tough decision about whether or not to go out every night. On those evenings where you decide to stay in and save your money, your goal is to achieve maximum comfort. As you are lounging on the sofa, you try not to think about all of the meetings you have at work tomorrow. You put on a nice movie to distract yourself when all of a sudden the power goes out! Immediately you try to locate a light source. Phone light? Battery is dead.  (How could you let your phone die. Grab a charger.) Candles? Your apartment complex bans them. Flashlight? Perfect! I must have one of those! You fruitlessly hunt around your apartment only to have a dark thought crosses your mind: You don’t have a flashlight.  After sitting on the floor for several minutes reflecting on how you managed to survive this long on your own, the power miraculously returns. Immediately, you hop onto google to search our website for our vast selection of flashlights and settle on the Nitecore MH20 Rechargeable Flashlight. Lightweight and portable, you will never get caught in the dark again!

 

Gearing Up For Spring – A Guide to Your First Day of Warm Weather

Well, it’s that time of year again. The snow has melted, the grass is growing, and it’s beginning to stay consistently warm enough to venture outside without a winter coat and gloves. Now that it is finally becoming bearable to stay outside longer than the walk from your car to your doorstep, preparations need to made for the inevitable outdoor activities. We’ve saved you some trouble by compiling a list of recreational essentials to ensure you are ready for a full day of play, from sunrise to sunset.

Dawn:

Dawn_-_swifts_creek02Rise and shine! It’s been a while since you’ve been outside at this time of day, or at least outside voluntarily for longer than 90 seconds.  The sun is shining and you realize you forgot just how bright the sun is at this hour. You’d planned to go for an early morning bike ride or hike, but you won’t get far doing either if you can’t keep your eyes open wider than a squint.  Instead of remaining stationary until your eyes can adjust to this Spring Sun, pick yourself up a pair of Wiley X Guard Sunglasses. Designed for high velocity protection, this stylish eyewear can ensure the wear and tear of any outdoor activity. These glasses are even available with changeable lenses to better fit your need to dull the Sun’s rays.

 

SUNGLASSES-1

Mid Day:

 

You did it! You completed your first attempt at outdoor exercise of the calendar year. Now that you’ve reached the top of your mountain or the end of your trail, its time for a well earned meal under the warm sun to refuel for the venture back. Unless you wore a pair of cargo pants with pockets fully stocked, you’ll probably need a backpack  like the Maxpedition Pygmy Falcon-II Backpack to help you transport your sustenance.  Compact and lightweight, this comfortable pack comes with a number of secure and breathable straps that make it easy to carry, no matter what the activity. But don’t let it’s pygmy size fool you; this pack features over 10 sizable pouches and pockets to hold all the food and fixings you’ll need for your victory meal. You won’t have trouble staying hydrating either, as the backpack even features 2 water bottle pouches that can each hold a 1L Nalgene bottle!

Sunset:

Finally! You made it back just in time to see the sun fading over the horizon. While the trek home was less strenuous than the initial expedition, your legs are certainly tired from the constant exertion. But the day (or night at this point) is still young; you have of time to squeeze in a few more activities before this beautiful first day of Spring is over. With the sun nearly gone, it seems like it would be difficult to fit in another outdoor activity, but not with Nite Ize’s FlashFlight Flying Discs and LED Disc Golf Discs. These durable discs use sophisticated LEDs to give off a luminous glow that make them clearly visible in the dead of night, so you’ll never lose track of them. Tossing a Frisbee with some friends or playing a few leisurely holes of Disc Golf will be the perfect way to unwind after such a full day of recreation, and with these discs you can play as late as you wish!

You’ve finally wrapped up your first day of Spring and it has been a smashing success! While your body may be sore, your heart feels content with the numerous outdoor activities you were finally able to do after months confined to your house. But don’t let soreness keep you inside longer than it has to; you have a bunch of new gear to use and a few seasons of warm weather to take advantage of!

” ‘Twas the Week Before Christmas “

‘Twas the week before Christmas and while most shopping was done

Some more gifts were required in order to cover everyone

With no time to spare the consumer gathered their thoughts

Of what presents would be cherished, what items should be bought.

 

“Dad needs a headlamp,” thought the consumer, “and a bike light for Mom.”

“Batteries for the kids’ gadgets and a good backpack for Tom”

But instead of braving the malls and stores that were packed

The consumer chose to shop online, “Battery Junction” to be exact.

 

With amazing deals on flashlights, batteries, chargers and gear,

The consumer could cover everything they needed for Christmas this year!

Just minutes into perusing the website’s collection of deals

What they found was more than a deal; it was a downright steal!

 

It was a Fenix Headlamp, its body durable and light

Its CREE LED produced  a beam that was far-reaching and bright.

“Dad will love this,” said the consumer, “for his camping trips and hikes.”

“But enough about Dad; time for Mom and her bike.”

Fenix-HL05-XMAS-BLOG

Moving onto the Bike Lighting section, our consumer was able to find

A bike light for seeing what’s in front, and one for signalling those behind

“With both lights, Mom could ride her bike safely after the sun had set”

“But no time to gloat about these purchases; there are more presents to get!”

BIKE-LIGHTS-XMAS-BLOG

The consumer progressed to the Batteries section, and much to their joy,

The website carried every battery size needed to power the children’s new toys

They grabbed the batteries required, threw in a charger most proper,

And prepared to wrap up their time as an online shopper.

BATTERIES-XMAS-BLOG

Last on the list was Tom, who needed a backpack that would last

On Dad’s crazy camping trips, like they’d gone on in the past.

So our consumer added a Pelican backpack to their order, and checked out with glee

Holiday shopping was over, they were finally free!

BACKPACK-XMAS-BLOG

The consumer’s present puzzle was solved, thanks to Battery Junction’s holiday steals,

But they aren’t the only one who can still take advantage of these deals.

Take 15% off all orders starting midnight tonight,

Happy Holiday Deals to all, and to all a good Light!

Friday the 13th Survival Guide

JASON-MASKNothing ruins a nice relaxing trip to Camp Crystal Lake on Friday the 13th like the abrupt intrusion of that hulking wall of undead flesh known as Jason Voorhees. That hockey mask wearing hooligan has been ruining everyone’s fun for years, and here at Battery Junction we think it’s about time to put that masked meat-bag down for good. If we’re gonna survive his unstoppable onslaught, we’re gonna have to get to know our enemy.

Keep the (Flash)Lights On This Halloween

From the look of all the spooky decorations covering people’s yards, it appears to be that time of year again; Halloween. Pumpkins are acquiring faces, children (and adults) are acquiring costumes, and the scary movies that used to keep us up at night are being re-watched and frightening us all over again.  While we tell the younger generation there is no such thing as monsters, our ordinarily logical minds seem to have trouble this time of year avoiding thoughts that something is waiting for you in the shadows. Halloween has a knack for temporarily sparking fears we thought had been long extinguished,  and while we are aware there’s most likely not an evil entity waiting on the poorly lit path between your car and your house, that certainly doesn’t stop us from getting some exercise along the way by sprinting to the front door. In any case, whether you are out Trick-or-Treating with family, searching the basement for an old costume, or going on a late night walk through the woods, it can never hurt to have a little extra light at hand when things get spooky.

It’s OK, we all have a little Nyctophobia

Watching the leaves change can be a great activity this Autumn, so great that you might lose track of time. As the sun sets and that forest of beautiful reds, oranges and browns turns black and ominous, make sure you have a reliable light bright enough to find your way back like the Fenix FD40 LED Flashlight. With a maximum throw distance of 300 meters, nothing can escape the 1000 Lumen brightness (as you can see below) of this powerful illuminator . You can light your way back to civilization assured there is nothing malevolent waiting for you along your path, but on the off chance Michael Myers  or the Wolfman cross your path, you can use the FD40’s disorienting Strobe function to blind them long enough to get away, making yourself far more competent than the average horror flick victim.

1000 Lumens does wonders to the level of spookiness.

Now it’s the kids’ turn to brave the night. The act of Trick-or-Treating is composed of every yearning you have as a child; the ability to wear a bizarre outfit of your own choosing, the acquisition of sugary sweets, and the temporary liberation from their parents’ supervision as you walk from house to house.  While candy and costumes aren’t much to worry about, most streets in rural or suburban areas aren’t lit at night and might require some extra illumination in order to navigate to the next house. To keep your trick-or-treaters’ eyes on the road, we suggest partnering them with the Fenix UC40 LED Flashlight, a lightweight and convenient carry for any trick-or-treater this Halloween. This Lithium Ion-powered flashlight can be charged internally using the USB charging port located on the tailcap and is able to run for up to 7 hours on its high setting of 140 Lumens, more than bright enough to guide your way to the next sugar source.  (An added bonus if your child is dressing up as a Jedi; the UC40 looks strikingly similar to a lightsaber.)

“Luke, use the Turbo Mode.”

Now that the kids are out indulging in the festivities, it’s time to dust off that old copy of “The Exorcist” you have in the basement and celebrate the horror holiday your own way. But oh no! Your basement light is out! Your life is slowly beginning to follow the plot to a cliché slasher flick and although you must be the hero and brave the potentially haunted cellar for your prize, don’t make the same mistake as the movie character and bring a reliable flashlight. Equip yourself with the UST Brightforce LED Flashlight, a reliable every day light that you can run on ordinary AA batteries. The flashlight’s beam is able to focused from narrow to wide so you can get a broader view of your surroundings, giving any potential ghosts and ghouls fewer places to hide. The Brightforce even comes with a non-slip silicone sleeve so even if you lose your grip and get a little scared, you’ll at least have a grip on your flashlight.

Everything is creepier in the dark. Thanks a lot, imagination.

Of course we know Dracula isn’t real. Of course that rustling in the bushes was probably just a squirrel and not a brains-famished zombie. Of course you’re more likely to find an old high school yearbook in the attic than Frankenstein’s Monster. That being said, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have a bright, reliable flashlight at your side to make sure you’re never left questioning yourself in the dark this Halloween.
