Remember last week when I posted the awesome dump truck deal – $90 (is now $349.99 again on Amazon!) well, I just got it today! It wasn’t supposed to get here until Friday, so if you ordered one watch out for it!
Also, I wanted to let you know that when I was a little girl year my parents bought a power wheels and left the battery in the garage Christmas Eve. It got too cold and they couldn’t get it to work and had to buy a new one. Here’s some tips to make sure your new Dump Truck or Power Wheels you got for your kid works on Christmas:
- Charge the battery for 24 full hours before its first use. Anything less will decrease overall battery life.
- Don’t store the battery in super hot or cold weather – and never store it on concrete as that will drain the power out!
- Make sure that the power wheels gets used fairly often – this will increase battery life.
- Don’t ever let the battery get completely drained of power! Re-charge after every use.
My parents have had their second battery for their power wheels 15 years. The same vehicle I rode when I was 5 years old, now my daughters drive when we go to visit them!
