Bendigo producers are in luck, Battery World's 110th store owner is, former farmer, Barry Murphy, so if anyone knows how much extra life you need to get from your batteires - it is him.
He is also a livestock nutritionist - swapping vitamins for volts to ensure Bendigo residents latest technology needs are always met.
The father of seven, has lived in the area for over 20 years so is a bona fide local and will be running the store with his son Tommy and his wife Prue.
In his farming days, Barry was a dab hand at setting up sheds with solar power so is looking forward to not only helping farmers but anyone looking for solar specialist solutions.
As a family man Barry understands the need to get more out of our devices, so Bendigo Battery World stocks batteries for many of those gadgets with 'hard-to-get' batteries from your older model mobile phone to NBN replacement batteries.
Not to mention Battery World provides a 24-hour roadside service and will happily take in your old domestic batteries for recycling from AAs to cars and trucks.
Adding to all of this - this team will also use the store to promote the company's charity of choice, Soldier On ( a charity committed to helping our veterans) with regular competitions, promotions and events.
