Stock Up on Essential Products for Governments and Municipalities with Batteries Plus
Believe it or not, 2023 is well on its way. That means it’s time to start securing the battery and lighting essentials you need for the long year ahead. Here are some of the key items essential for government and municipality needs.
NPPGov is sharing this informative blog from our valued partner, Batteries Plus.
Replace Batteries in Government Fleet Vehicles
Squad cars, ambulances and other emergency vehicles need to be ready at a moment’s notice. Be sure that your auto batteries are tested and replaced regularly. If your emergency vehicles operate in extreme hot or cold weather, you may want to consider upgrading to an AGM battery. AGM batteries are designed to last longer, recharge faster and perform better in any climate.
Purchase Headlight Bulbs and Other Automotive Essentials
As you prepare for 2023, you should also consider keeping a supply of additional auto accessories on hand, such as headlight bulbs and auto fuses. You also may want to pick up some battery chargers to maintain your batteries when your vehicles aren’t being driven and jump starters to get batteries going again if they die in the cold.
Key fobs and remotes can wear out over time. Now’s the perfect time to test the keys and remotes for your emergency vehicles and replace them if they’re not performing properly.
SLA Batteries Power a Variety of Important Applications
Sealed Lead Acid batteries (SLAs) are used to power everything from UPS units and battery backups to emergency lighting, floor scrubbers and more. Now’s the time to secure your supply of SLA batteries for the year. It’s also essential that you charge your SLA batteries properly, so be sure to pick up the correct SLA chargers too.
Alkaline Batteries are Essential for First Responders
Alkaline batteries are used in flashlights, two-way radios, first aid gear and other crucial equipment. When shopping for alkaline batteries, talk to your supplier about the options they have available. Some manufacturers such as Duracell offer high-performance alkaline and lithium batteries made specifically for professional devices.
Upgrading Your Lighting Can Save You Money
LED lights are brighter, last longer and more energy-efficient than other traditional lamps. Switching to LED lighting can save you money on both your utility and maintenance costs. For instance, with metal halide exterior lamps, the cost of replacing just the bulb and ballast alone often costs as much as an entire new LED fixture, and that’s without factoring in the cost of labor.
Save Money By Repairing, Rather Than Replacing, Devices
If you rely on phones and tablets, you can stretch your municipal dollars by repairing your broken devices. Oftentimes, a simple screen repair or battery replacement is all it takes to restore your device to a good working order. Plus, you’ll save a lot of money in the process.
