Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries

Now on to our grilling essentials. There are a few must-haves on my barbecue party essentials list that also require the World’s longest lasting AA battery.

Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries

The Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries hold the Guinness World Record title for the Longest-Lasting AA Battery. Perfect for our outdoor entertaining – we can go all night without fear of losing the music, or other essentials.

Boombox Portable Radio

For me, one of the most important things about our backyard parties is the music. Any music. Our portable boombox will do in most cases. This is where we get serious with our batteries.

Power you outdoor entertaining with Energizer batteries

When you’re playing cornhole or hanging out around the fire pit, you want some nice background music. Right? You don’t want to be …unning…outta..atteries…. during your party.

Powering the radio with Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries

For that reason, we power up our bluetooth boombox with Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries, the world’s longest lasting AA battery.

These also have a leak resistant design and are light weight. No one likes opening the battery compartment to find corroded batteries!

Powering Up Wireless Grill Thermometer

I also use the Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries in my wireless meat thermometer. This comes in handy when we’re cooking ribs or chicken on the grill. It helps me keep the grill’s temperature in check and tells me when the food is done by sending an alert to the wireless handheld receiver!

We get a little impatient waiting for the ribs to be done… PS: They’re done at 203 degrees. A battery failure could result in burnt ribs — the horror! 😲

Changing Grill Igniter Battery

Speaking of horror….. Ever have the battery on your propane grill’s igniter quit on you? Even worse, ever have it quit and not have fresh batteries at the ready? With a 20 year shelf life, Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries will be in your kitchen drawer waiting when you need them. Don’t reach for the match to light your propane grill – you might need change your britches after doing that. 😂

Electronic Fly Swatter

We also use Energizer MAX® batteries for other things like my second favorite backyard entertaining device. The electronic fly swatter! If you’ve got skeeters buzzing around or a giant freaky lookin’ bugs, sometimes you just need to break out the zapping swatter. Keeping it loaded with Energizer MAX® batteries is the way to go.

It wouldn’t be a BBQ without a bug-zapping electronic fly swatter to keep the mosquitoes at bay!

Flashlight Tag

The sun sets quick when you’re having fun. But, no one wants the fun to end just because the sun went down. While the adults hang out around the fire pit, the kids will grab the flashlights for a competitive game of flashlight tag!

Another essential for backyard parties – the flashlights! An assortment of flashlights all need to be working equally. having them powered up with Energizer MAX® batteries will ensure a fair and fun game of flashlight tag.

Powering Personal Fans

Perhaps Katie’s favorite summer invention, the personal fan. When the sun is blaring and the temps hover around 90 or 100 degrees, there’s no better way to be prepared than with personal battery operated fans. We’ve used the fans than hang around your neck at amusement parks and in the backyard alike.

She loves her water spray fan to cool off while we’re playing backyard games, too. An easy way to keep a little cooler on a hot summer day. Powering these with Energizer MAX® batteries, which by the way come in AA and AAA sizes are now their #1 longest-lasting MAX™ batteries, assures us that we’ll be able to keep cooler regardless of where we are.

Stay cool with personal fans all summer long.
