Nerf's Rival Rechargeable Battery is an incredible upgradeFoam warfare finally leaves the alkaline age.
Ball warfare is about to change forever and it has nothing to do with this fearsome looking Nerf gun. It's because Nerf has finally decided to do something about the ridiculously heavy underpowered century old alkaline batteries that have been bogging them down. Behold the Nerf Rival rechargeable battery pack. At 30 U.S. dollars, it does cost as much as some Nerf Blasters do themselves but gosh, is it like night and day. Swap one of these puppies into a Nerf Rival [UNKNOWN] Blaster, and it will shoot faster, harder, be ready for action quicker and won't wear down your arm in the process. And you don't have to take my word for it. We captured some smooth slow motion before and after footage of some fresh D-batteries versus the new rival pack Here's how quickly it spins up [SOUND] And her's how much faster it shoots. Just get a load of those shock waves on the back wall. If you've got your eye on the Nerf Rival chaos or better yet the ridiculous menaces of 100 round machine gun coming with Fall you want one of these batteries for sure.
