With hurricane season getting closer, it's important to have an emergency supply kit on hand in case of extreme weather. Batteries Plus has the flashlights, generators and extra batteries you need to stay prepared for the unexpected.
Hurricanes and other major storms can knock out the power for days, making it difficult to cook, refrigerate food and regulate the temperature in your home. Having a generator available will allow you to power essentials like fridges, sump pumps, furnaces and AC units. Here are a few of the many generator options available from Batteries Plus.
A sump pump is a great way to protect your home from potential flooding caused by excessive rain. It's important to keep in mind that sump pumps run off of your home's electricity, so if the power goes out, you have no defense against a flooded basement. Fortunately, you can install a battery-powered backup pump. Here are a few options available from Batteries Plus:
If you already have a backup pump, be sure that you regularly check the batteries. If it's time for a replacement, we can help. Shop our selection of sump pump backup batteries.
Cell phones are vital during an emergency, allowing you to contact friends and family and stay on top of important news. When the power goes out, so does your ability to charge your phone. That's why it's a good idea to add a power bank to your collection of emergency supplies. Batteries Plus has a wide range of power banks and wireless chargers to fit any phone.
No power means no lights, so be sure that you have a few reliable flashlights available to help you see at night.
Batteries are essential during a power outage, allowing you to power important things like flashlights and radios. Looking for the best deal on replacement batteries?
