Another thing parents need to do to prepare for the Holidays is shop for all of those must-have gifts. With kids, it seems that more and more of them require batteries. And many of these gifts aren't clearly labeled "Batteries Not Included", so it's easy to miss when you're in a shopping frenzy.
There's nothing worse than seeing a kid's delight turn into sorrow when they open a present and realize that "Santa" forgot to include batteries. This is a parenting fail than I have been guilty of in the past. It's definitely not a good feeling at all, and no way to start off Christmas!
That's why this year, I am making sure I'm prepared. I am stocking up on batteries of various sizes, and usually buy a package or two each time we go shopping. This way, there's no possibility of being without the batteries required to power our gifts this Christmas.
When it comes to batteries, not all are created equal. Sure, there are bargain batteries out there, but they don't seem to last as long as they should. I always choose Duracell products because they're dependable, long-lasting, and are always a good value. Duracell batteries have been a household name for decades, and as technologies change, they come out with new innovations that make lives easier.

The awesome folks at Duracell sent me a few of these products to try for myself. I received a few packages of batteries with the Duralock technology, and I also received the Quick Charger.
