Yes, Nerd Beach (along with Energizer®) is indeed giving away a battery stash consisting of 5 packs of the new Energizer® Advanced Lithium® AA batteries to a lucky reader (these are not your standard batteries). No registration required – read on for details.
Nerd Beach loves gadgets. That much is probably apparent if you have visited many pages on the Beach. But with a love of gadgets there is always a dose of reality to keep you grounded. In most cases, one of these practical facts is battery life. Simply put, there is never enough.
Energizer® is introducing a new weapon against the battery blues with their Advanced Lithium® battery line. The specs on these new batteries read like a wish list:
- Last up to 4x longer in digital cameras (versus Energizer® MAX®. results vary by camera)
- Lasts up to 20 hours longer in wireless gaming accessories. Results vary by play and/ or usage patterns.
- Last up to 30% longer in personal audio devices (versus Energizer® MAX®. results vary by device)
- Weigh 1/3 less than standard alkaline
- 10 year storage life
- Leak resistant construction
We like those numbers – four times the battery life of the previous champ Energizer® MAX® with 33% less weight. That will keep your bunny running longer (and the rest of your gear, for those who do not actually carry bunnies with them on a regular basis).
Now for the giveaway. To celebrate the new battery line, Nerd Beach is teaming with the Energizer® folks to give a lucky reader five (yes, 5) packs of the new AA batteries. Now you ask, how do you get the swag? Simple, send an email to Nerd Beach at [email protected] (or submit it as a comment to this article, both sources will be judged equally), stating your favorite Energizer® story, comment, unique use, or something else that involves the batteries. The one that has the best entry (to be judged by the staff at Nerd Beach) will get the goods. Simple as that.
The Legal part: You can enter only once, and please note that for whatever you send as part of the contest entry (stories, pictures, etc.), you are giving us permission to publish it on Nerd Beach. The contest is open to anyone, no purchase required. The contest deadline has now passed.
As an additional bonus for Nerd Beach readers, we have another gift from the Energizer® folks – a free ringtone. Now you can be alerted about a call by the thumping bunny in your pocket – so you CAN carry your bunny with you. You can download the link here:

(Right click and do a save as. Please download the ringtone, do not link to it.)
The contest is over, and we have a winner. It was a close contest with a lot of very good entries ( and some curious ones), but our winner is William Evans. Thanks to everyone who participated. Don't forget to check back to see what is happening at Nerd Beach, since we will be having more contests featuring more gear in the coming weeks.
Every time I see a picture of the Energizer Bunny, I think about Space Quest IV and how you needed to capture the bunny and steal his battery as part of the game. Given the advance in batteries since then, I bet Roger Wilco would have a harder time catching the bunny now.
Okay, I just entered. The stash is mine, no doubt (I hope). 😉
Sideshow Bob, I can remember playing that game as well, quite a few years back when it first appeared. I won’t say what kind of machine it was on at the time, but for the record it still booted up about as fast as a Windows PC or Mac does today – it just didn’t do as much at the same time.
One time on a trip I used a few energizer batteries to wedge the hotel door so that it couldn’t be opened with a housekeeper key – slept better that way. When I left I put the batteries back in the flashlight, and they still worked.
Does that count as an entry?
James – yes, that counts.
