Duracell Coppertop Batteries

The holidays are just around the corner and there is magic in the air. There is nothing like the feeling you get when baking cookies with the kids, seeing all the Christmas decorations go up and listening to holiday music.

When you’re working your way down your shopping list, don’t forget to pick up some batteries to power those great gifts! In this modern age of cellphones, video games and electronic gadgets, it is always a good idea to have a supply of batteries on hand.

Many toys our children ask for require batteries and most don’t have batteries included. The few toys that do include the batteries are generally of cheap, poor quality. That’s why it’s important to go with a high quality battery, such as Duracell Coppertop Batteries.

Duracell CopperTop batteries are available in AA, AAA, C, D and 9V and come in a variety of different size packs. The 4 pack would make a great stocking stuffer to go with that remote control car!

The 16 pack is perfect to have on hand if you expect to go through a lot of batteries. You may surprised at how many things you will use batteries for this holiday season, because frankly, we just don’t think about it that much–until we need new batteries, of course! Check out these things you may need batteries for during the holidays and winter season.

Decorating. You know those cute little Christmas villages that are so popular? You need batteries or electricity to light them up! Or what about the dancing snowman or singing Santa you get out out every year? They need batteries too!

Entertainment. If you have guests from out of town, or even just spending the day, it can be a great time to use that Wii! And those Wii controllers will eat batteries! No gamers? I bet that TV remote still gets used!

Toys. Of course I mentioned this before, but lots of toys use batteries! Remote control cars, talking dolls and more!

Cameras. I don’t know who doesn’t take pictures and video during Thanksgiving, Christmas and other holidays. You definitely don’t want to run out of batteries when you’re documenting precious memories!


Other incidentals. You may need batteries for flashlights, alarm clocks, electric toothbrushes and more. You’ll want to make sure you have some of each variety, but especially AA!

Duracell is the #1 trusted battery brand of first responders, pharmacists and parents, so you know it’s a battery you can trust, make sure you stock up on Duracell Coppertop Batteries to power the holidays! 

Do you keep your batteries stocked up?

    Duracell batteries are the best, I think.

  2. Thanks for the Terrific Review on Ways to Power the Holiday With Batteries! You are so right, I’ve learned my lesson! I make sure that I stock up on batteries of all kind around the Christmas holiday and winter months! You never know when something is just going to stop and require replacement batteries! Nowadays, there are an awful lot of remote control cars, truck, etc. that require AA and 9V batteries in order to work! So, I try to keep stocked up on those! Especially when the Grandkids come for a visit, you never know if any of their toys will not work because of battery failure! Duracell Copper Top Batteries are generally on the top of my list! They are Terrific Batteries and last a long time! Thanks so much for the Terrific review and information you provided us with! I honestly do appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

    The duracell batteries have convienced me that they are the best. I have tried others but go back to duracell because they last longer and perform better.

  5. Thanks for the reminder. Some of the gifts I am giving require batteries.

    You are so right about keeping batteries on hand during the holidays. After many years of experience, I finally learned that manufacturers are not always kind enough, or smart enough, lol to enclose batteries in packaging of their battery operated toys. Go figure!

  7. I just started buying Reuseables… I’m not rich and Duracell Batteries are pretty pricey.

      We tried using reusables once and found that after the first several uses their power got sucked out really fast. I understand about name brand batteries costing more, but I’ve found they last longer than cheaper ones.

  8. Duracell batteries are always our favorite. They’re the longest lasting for sure.

  9. I keep a stock on hand of batteries (seems to be a parental requirement today) but should get more for Christmas, thanks for the reminder!

  10. My kids have been running though a lot of batteries, but I wish Duracell put out better coupons.
