Lenmar's Battery Central Boosts Retailers' Sales of Rechargeable Batteries



CAMARILLO, Calif.–(October 23, 2007) – Lenmar’s Battery Central, a Web-based online battery finder, enables retailers to easily sell batteries, chargers and accessories for more than 70,000 different devices without inventory or overhead. It’s the simple, effective and profitable way for every retailer to participate in the $5 billion plus market for rechargeable batteries. With Battery Central as their virtual battery inventory, retailers can sell batteries and accessories even if they don’t sell devices that need batteries.

“Every day, frustrated consumers hunt for the right replacement battery for a digital camera, camcorder, laptop computer, cell phone or other popular portable electronic device,” says Marty Goldberg, president of Lenmar. “How can retailers simply and profitably satisfy this need when there are thousands of different rechargeable batteries and power accessories on the market?”

Battery Central is a flexible system suitable for in-store and online sales. Retail sales associates can use it via a Web browser on a network terminal, and customers can find batteries and place an order via a self-service electronic kiosk in the store. For online sales, Battery Central can be integrated into a retailer’s own Web site, matching the graphic design.

Lenmar’s proprietary battery search engine and comprehensive database lists more than 1,000 different batteries and power accessories cross-referenced to cover more than 70,000 different devices including laptop computers, video camcorders, cellular phones, MP3 players, digital cameras, 2-way radios, cordless telephones and power tools. Lenmar’s staff of battery experts updates the database and cross references regularly.
