I have a sneaky feeling this is going to end up being one my most popular ever posts, judging by the reaction I got on Facebook when I gave you a sneaky preview ! And I can quite understand it, because it is a truly fabulous prize.
Duracell recently got in touch to tell me about their rechargeable batteries that can be used with the Coolpix camera and that can last for an amazing 70,000 photos over the lifetime of the battery. That's a lot of blogposts ! That's also a lot of batteries that won't end up in the bin, and that has to be a good thing for the planet.
Rechargeable batteries are ideal for high drain or high usage products such as digital cameras, wireless games controllers or handheld GPS devices. (As a keen geocacher, I can tell you that handheld GPS devices get through A LOT of batteries !) I was very impressed to see that the charger only takes 45 minutes which means that you can quickly power up your camera and get back behind the viewfinder clicking away. Duracell’s higher capacity rechargeable batteries also last longer, helping you recharge less often, so you won't have to worry about your camera running out of juice at the crucial moment. This will be great news when we're on holiday over the summer and not necessarily close to a power supply during the day.
All Duracell rechargeables have new Duralock™ technology which not only packs in more power but also preserves power, meaning the batteries have more capacity and last longer than ever before. Duracell rechargeable batteries are guaranteed to last 5 years or 300 recharges, whichever comes first!
I'm looking forward to putting that to the test. It's actually quite apt too because next month will mark the 5th birthday of my blog. I've posted 5754 blogposts in that time, covering huge amounts of adventures, cookery projects and fun, which brings home just how long the batteries' lifespan is.
Well, as I'm sure you've guessed from the title, I'm incredibly pleased to announce that Duracell have very generously offered to send a Nikon Coolpix digital camera to one of you lucky lot too. You'll be able to put the Duracell rechargeable batteries to the test with it too ! Fill in your entries in the rafflecopter widget below.
