Duracell turns 50, providing over half a century of portable power
SINGAPORE, 26 JUNE 2014 – Duracell celebrates 50 years of portable power, from powering the transistor radio of yesteryears, to modern-day digital gadgets. The latest Duracell CopperTop batteries with Duralock Power Preserve™ Technology last six times longer than ordinary batteries* and guarantees 10 years of power preservation in storage.
Duracell batteries have been the catalysts for some of the most simple every day pleasures. In fact, they have become so integral to our daily lives that most of us do not notice how they have changed the world. Without batteries, we would still be cranking the engines to start our cars, watches and clocks would need to be wound by hand, and children would not be so easy to entertain without the delight of a battery-powered toy, or digital devices these days.
“Over the last five decades, we have introduced the world to the superior performance, dependability and trust of Duracell batteries. Duracell is the world’s No. 1 battery brand and that drives us to innovate and excel. When you choose Duracell batteries, you are choosing 50 years of innovation powering the devices that keep us connected, protected and entertained,” said Stefan Sallandt, Commercial Director of Duracell Asia.
In 1964, Duracell adopted their official trademark, and are now producing over 6 billion iconic copper and black batteries a year. With the evolvement of battery technology and design, Duracell’s innovations continue to meet the ever changing needs of families around the world.
