Light for a garage

With the weather getting warmer, now’s the perfect time to show your garage some much-needed attention. Whether you're looking to add some additional lighting to a work space, make your garage more secure or just replace the batteries in your garage door remote, Batteries Plus has you covered. Here are our top 5 garage enhancements.

Garage Lighting

If your garage is anything like mine, it's very low on available lighting. The Triburst Multi-Directional LED Light is perfect for garages with only a few light bulb sockets. It features three separate LED lighting panels with 144 high-intensity LED bulbs. Best of all, the hinged panels can be conveniently angled to any direction, making it great for work spaces.

There's also the Triburst Pro, which features 5,500 lumens of light with the same three panel design. Both models easily screw into any standard E26 or E27 base light socket.

Garage Door Opener Batteries

Have you noticed that your garage door opener hasn't been working consistently? If so, it's probably because the batteries in your remote are dying. Most garage door openers use either an A-23 alkaline or a 2032 lithium-ion battery. Typically these batteries will need to be replaced about every two years. Stop into your nearest Batteries Plus or shop our selection of replacement alkaline and lithium batteries online.

Replacement Garage Door Remotes & Keypads

If replacing the batteries doesn't fix the problem, maybe you need a new remote. This universal Garage Door Opener from Genie is compatible with all major garage door opener brands. It comes with pre-programmed settings and an exclusive pairing feature that makes it easy to use. There's also a 3-Button Garage Door Opener, which allows you to control up to three separate garage doors from the same remote.

Are you someone that's constantly losing your remotes? The Genie Wireless Exterior Keypad is the solution for you. Mount it outside your garage, then access your garage with a personal pin number. We also carry a simple, push-button opener for inside your garage as well. The Genie Universal Garage Door Opener can be easily mounted to a side wall and wired directly into your garage door opener.
