ST. LOUIS, Mo. - For travelers, outdoor enthusiasts, do-it-yourselfers and those looking for cool new gadgets and ways to power them, the line-up from Energizer (NYSE: ENR) includes great ideas to light up their holidays and power their favorite activities all year long.

NEW TECHNOLOGY THAT TOPS THE LIST

For those who love to get the newest gear and gadgets, Energizer has introduced some smart new devices that will give them a real charge.

Energizer® Inductive Charger $89.00

Next generation charging technology for smartphones has arrived with the Energizer® Inductive Charger. It offers an easy and convenient way to charge smartphones without cords and cables. This advanced technology features Qi (pronounced chee), the new universal standard for inductive charging, so it will power up devices like smartphones now and in the future regardless of manufacturer. The Energizer Inductive Charger is designed to work with Qi-enabled devices, whether Qi is built into the device or the device has a Qi accessory. It features two large charging zones that don't require locking the device into a precise position, so you'll be sure to have your phone charged and ready to go when you need it. It also features a USB port to meet additional charging needs.

To work with today's popular smartphones, Energizer is launching the Inductive Charger with a removable Qi sleeve for the Apple iPhone® 3G/3GS and a Qi door for the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8900 (sold separately).

Simply slide the iPhone into the Energizer® Qi Sleeve or attach the Energizer® Qi Door -- a one-time replacement -- to the Blackberry, and set your phone down on the charger for cordfree charging!

Energizer® Recharge Smart™ Charger -- $19.99

If you are getting ready to wrap a battery-powered toy, game or gadget, a smart addition to the package is the new Energizer® Recharge Smart™ Charger, because there is nothing more disappointing than a great new toy running out of power! This new charger was developed in response to consumers' interest in knowing more about the charging status of their rechargeable batteries. It features a large LCD screen with a countdown clock displaying remaining charging time, a fuel gauge indicating the current level of power in the inserted NiMH rechargeable batteries, and a bad battery alert that automatically indicates if the batteries are no longer useful or if a disposable battery has been inserted by mistake.
