Can you believe that Fourth of July is almost here?  I don’t know about you, but this year is just flying by.  With that being said, I can tell you that I have a LOT of photos in my phone from pictures I took of our family spending time and doing fun stuff together.  Not to mention how quickly I seem to run through my phone battery because I’m taking pictures, tweeting, facebooking, instagramming, and emailing.  And this Fourth of July isn’t gonna be any different!

This Fourth of July, we’re gonna have all 6 of our kids together, plus my future in-laws, plus my bestie and her kids.  It’s gonna be a full house and a good time.  I know there will be lots of pictures taken, which means my phone is gonna need a backup plan for charging.  Thanks to Rayovac, I can rest assured that backup charging will be available at my fingertips!

With the Rayovac 7 Hour Power Charger, I can easily and quickly charge my iPhone and tablet.  The kit included (1) Charger, (4) Rayovac Batteries, (1) Micro-USB Cord and (1) Apple Cord.  I did have to use my own cord for the iPhone 5, but I love that it came with 2 different cords and that I can even charge my tablet with the Power Charger!  Not only do I love the products from Rayovac, but I also love that Rayovac’s alkaline and hearing aid batteries are Made in the USA

The 7 Hour Power Charger is super easy to use!  Plus, you can use it without having to use any outlets!  This is especially great when you’re traveling or out and about without access to an outlet.  To use, simply insert Rayovac AA Alkaline Batteries and cover.  Then you can connect the charger to your device with your USB cord or one of the provided cords in the kits.  LEDs will light up and remain lit for the duration of the charge.  The LEDs will also indicate the power level of the charger.

I look forward to the time we’ll spend and memories we’ll make together this Fourth of July!  What are your plans for the Fourth of July?

    I can not believe that it is almost the 4th of July. It will be hot where I am at and the whole family will be at the Lake! We are having a big barbecue and it will be fun to go swimming, boating and eating. You have a terrific 4th of July!

    I love that they’re made in the USA too, and you can never be too careful about having battery back up on a holiday. 🙂 Now they need to make one for my weedeater… (never mind me, it’s lawn day). 🙂

  3. Thats a pretty cool device. My husband has this pad that you plug in to charge. You can take it with you or leave plugged in. You set your phones, ipads and such on top of it and it will charge them.

    Well, I hope you all had a fun day/evening on the 4th. THere’s nothing worse than running out of juice on a holiday…glad you’ve got back up with the batteries!!

    I got a portable charger for my iPhone before we went to Disney last year because the year before I kept finding myself with a dead battery before the day was half over. It’s the best thing ever.

  6. Kayla says:

    It looks like you had a fun 4th of July! 🙂 I love making memories with my little guys…and of course, taking way too many photos. 😉

  7. I love having a portable charger. I throw it in our backpack/diaper bag if I know I’m going to be gone for a long time.

  8. Portable battery packs seriously save my life everyday. My phone battery doesn’t keep it’s charge all day long so I’m always relying on external packs.

  9. I totally need one of those chargers! You never know when it will come in handy!

  10. Debbie L. says:

    We definitely need one of these….I am always worried my phone will run out of power while taking pics.

  11. Jaime says:

    We’re coming off of several days of celebrating/partying/traveling. We spent the Fourth with friends, and watching fireworks on television. (My son is still a little too young to stay up for them.) I did take a ton of photos, though, and must back them up soon!

  12. Dawn Lopez says:

    Sounds like you had some fabulous plans for the 4th! Hope it was wonderful! Loving the 7 Hour Power Charger, that sounds amazing. I need to check it out!

  13. Brett says:

    Battery backup is always good around the holidays! I find myself looking for a charger, especially during these times, frequently so I can capture a lot of photos. I definitely need to check this out!

  14. It is always important to have a back-up power source! I hope your family had a great 4th of July!

  15. Tracey says:

    Defintiely need one of those chargers! I had worrying about battery life!!

  16. Tonia says:

    I love your red white and blue clothing. You guys looks so cute all coordinated like that, Isn’t that the fun part of Independence day. I love being with my family and dressing together. That will never happen for Thanksgiving. LOL…By the way, I love that charger. I need one.

  17. I definitely need to get one of these. I cannot count how many times recently my phone has died on me and I was no where to charge it.

  18. teresa mccluskey says:

    I think it is always smart to carry an extra charge for your phone. love how this one needs no power other then the batteries

  19. Christina S says:

    I definitely need one of these! My phone battery is awful now and I’m always trying to snap pics on “low battery”!
