If you’re anything like me, you’ll know that some days you need to recharge your batteries. While a simple cup of coffee may suffice for others, I’m a huge fan of energy drinks. Over the years I’ve tried quite a range such as Red Bull, Monster, Relentless, to the new Powerade. All of these lovely drinks provide me with an ample source of energy while on the go.
In these drinks I’m forever looking for something that gets me going from A to B for a little longer. While most of the brands like Red Bull and Monster fill this requirement, I’m always on the look out for a new source of energy and power within a drink. For the last week, I’ve been trying out Battery Energy Drinks. Pure liquid fuel in a can you could say. These Battery energy drinks originally came from Finland, but are now available in the UK for the very first time.
When the case first arrived at Girl Gamers Towers, we opened it up to find cans that resemble an oversized battery, complete with plus and minus symbols. Each can provides 33cl/11.2 fl oz of energy-filled goodness. Battery Energy Drinks come in three different types, which are original, sugar free and the isontonic Hydro. They all contain vital essentials for a fuel drink such as B-Vitamins, Caffeine and Gaurana extracts, which is everything you need if you want to work harder and play faster.
Battery Energy Drinks have also been scientifically formulated to boost performance levels, keeping you focused and alert when you need it the most. Each can is filled with the maximum amount of caffeine allowed in Europe which is 32mg per 100ml, which is slightly stronger than Red Bull. Red Bull has 30 mg of caffeine per 100 ml and a typical mug of coffee can contain anything from 100mg to 300mg depending on the size of the mug and how strong you make it.
The carbonated drinks come in some delicious flavours and are all pretty fizzy. I have become quite accustomed to the flavour of the Hydro Battery drink, with it’s slight fruity and zesty lemon taste, and it is my favourite one to have before I go for a workout as it gives me an extra boost before I hit the gym. Hydro is also a mid calorie drink with only 15 kcal/100 ml, which means it’s not filling your body with tons of sugar. While I love energy drinks within my lifestyle, they should never be given to children and not exceed more than 2 bottles or 3 cans a day. Everyone has a limit and so do I. While I really love Battery Energy Drinks, they logically shouldn’t be taken before bedtime as they will keep you awake for several hours.
Whether you’re playing video games into the early hours of the morning or simply working out your local gym, you may need something a little bit extra to keep you going. These stimulating energy drinks provide a good source of energyand contain an abundance of essential vitamins within their Battery style cans. It’s hard to find fault with Battery Energy Drinks as they all do everything they say on the can and all taste great. The price point is good at £1.75, which is comparable to other top brand energy drinks. If you want to try something new on the block which offers a little bit more than your average caffeine filled beverage, then try out Battery Energy Drinks.
