Eveready, one of the world’s most reputed brand names in batteries and flashilights, celebrates its 110 years of “lighting” people’s lives. In its 110 years of existence, Eveready has proved to be a dependable and reliable ally, bringing unparallel lighting and battery solutions to people.
Imagine lasting 110 years in the market? A company wouldn’t last that long if it isn’t for the excellent service it provides. And Eveready is a living testament. 110 years of providing joy and assisstance to mankind, Eveready sure has every reason to celebrate.
For me and for most people I know, Eveready is the most trusted brand when it comes to batteries. To prove my case, let me share to you an “embarrassing” incident experienced by my grandmother way back because she opted for a cheap battery instead of the good old reliable Eveready brand.
It was Christmas time and she bought a beautiful battery operated toy car from a high end department store for her grand son. For some unexplanable reason she replaced the batteries of her old clock from the batteries included in the toy car and bought some cheap knockoff batteries for the toy (I can only guess that she thought the toy is already expensive enough so she might as well save on the batteries). When she gave it to the boy on Christmas day at their house, his excitement was traded with a disappointing expression when the toy car operated for a good 2 minutes only. Then, of course after much scrutinizing from the boy’s dad, everyone figured it was a case of a faulty battery. It was already embarrasing enough for the battery to die down but even embarrassing was the boy’s dad asking their maid to buy a “branded” — as the dad specifically instructed the maid — battery from a nearby store for the child at that time.
Well, the above story just proves the saying “you get what you pay for.” Sometimes things, like batteries, may cost more because there is a reason for that. Now, my grandmother’s story may be taken lightly because it is a funny “faulty battery” episode but imagine if it was a more serious incident, like typhoons or earthquakes, and not having a realiable battery and flashlights, things may just get pretty ugly.
Choosing a good quality battery and flashlight is very important because these are of paramount essentials during “emergencies” or crisis situation which can sometimes be life threatening. It is important to be prepared always because one never knows when these situations will occur. So, if you want to be ready at all times and make sure that you are well prepared during emergencies, stick with EVEREADY.
