Energizer MAX AA Batteries

Energizer® MAX ® is the perfect battery to tie together any holiday gift list providing high-tech toys and gadgets with long-lasting power and leak protection.

Time and time again, the phrase “batteries not included” has crushed holiday cheer. In fact, according to a survey conducted by Energizer® in 2016 with more than 1,000 respondents, 90 percent of Americans have forgotten batteries for a holiday gift in the past.

Forgetting to buy batteries has historically been the most common holiday mishap among parents. This year, don’t let that be you – don’t forget the batteries! When you’re purchasing holiday gifts for kids and tech lovers, make sure you preserve those special holiday moments and buy the batteries needed to power those gifts.

With Energizer’s latest improvements, Energizer MAX® AA batteries now last up to 30 percent longer than previous Energizer MAX® AA batteries in digital cameras.

Energizer MAX® AA batteries are also designed to protect devices and toys from damaging leaks for up to two years after the battery is fully used. And Energizer MAX® AA batteries also hold power for up to 10 years while in storage, so you can power up your gifts on future holiday mornings or whenever you need power most.

Energizer® MAX is competitively priced with other high performance alkaline batteries within the category.  The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for one AA 4-pack is $3.99.
