If anyone out there that reads this here blog, who is very over-weight, could suggest what I can do for a workout in the home (via DVDs), please let me know your suggestions. I have mild asthma, and when I push myself to walk up steep hills for a workout, I end up getting sick because I have to breath out of my mouth and I have to because I feel like I am suffocating. Yuck. I have some Sweatin to the Oldies...a couple kick-boxing things, and one ab workout but I am bored of them all. I need to loose some of the weight because my back as been complaining a lot...and it would be nice to be a little smaller. I need some that is easy on my knees, and doesn't require me to do fetal positions (cause you know that spare tire is in the way).
And Rayovac ROCKS! I had emailed them a couple weeks ago and asked if an older One-hour charger model that they made four or so years ago would handle charging the new, larger capacity 2800 batteries. They said that it would. Well, I tried it in good faith (thinking they knew more than I on the subject) and the newer batteries totally burned-out the old model. It smelled like burning electrical wire, and got unnervingly hot and all the while...made some kind of tinking sound that was not normal for it. So I emailed them back and told them this so that they would know for future reference. I also told them that we had to buy a new charger and that all we could find were the 3-4 hour chargers. I asked if they still made the one hour chargers...and apparently they do not. I guess it is not possible to charge the larger capacity batteries in such a short time without a fire hazard brewing in the charger.
What did Rayovac do upon hear that last part?
They apologized...and sent me a NEW charger-FREE without asking me if I wanted a new one (or me asking for one because I wasn't lookin for a freebie-I was just informing them), and it came today and it is the exact same model I purchased AND it has four new AA batteries in it!!! It it the Home and Mobile charger that comes with a lighter plug for charging on the go. Rayovac, YOU TOTALLY ROCK!!! Now we can charge twice as many batteries, and have one for the truck if we need it. *happy dance!* I've always been a Rayovac customer, mainly because they've been cheaper, but also because they were the first to come out with rechargeables those four or so years ago when I was in the market to buy them. Back then, the chargers were $30 but now they are significantly cheaper and a lot easier to find.
Until next time...
