The long lasting performance of a Duracell battery is possible due to the modern technologies inside the battery. The three primary technologies are: Duralock, POWERCHECK™ and High Density Core. Duralock keeps active materials inside the robust case and prevents leakage. POWERCHECK™ helps control how much power is left inside the battery and therefore enables you to use the battery to the very end. And the High Density Core of Duracell Ultra Power is filled with more active ingredients and, as a result, delivers more energy. All these technologies enables the long lasting power of Duracell batteries.
Find out how to get the best out of a Duracell battery and learn how to properly recycle them.
Tips for proper battery care and use
- Always use the correct size and type of battery specified by the device manufacturer.
- Keep battery contact surfaces and battery compartment contacts clean by rubbing them with a clean pencil eraser or a rough cloth each time you replace batteries.
- Remove batteries from a device when it is not expected to be in use for several months and while it is being powered by household (AC) current.
- Make sure that you insert batteries into your device properly, with the + (plus) and – (minus) terminals aligned correctly. CAUTION: Some equipment using more than three batteries may appear to work properly even if one battery is inserted incorrectly.
- Extreme temperatures reduce battery performance. Store batteries in a dry place at normal room temperature. Do not refrigerate Duracell batteries as this will not make them last longer, and avoid putting battery-powered devices in very warm places.
- Do not attempt to recharge a battery unless the battery specifically is marked “rechargeable.”
- Some depleted batteries and batteries that are exposed to extremely high temperatures may leak. A crystalline structure may begin to form on the outside of the battery.
Disposing of, General Purpose and Alkaline Batteries
- The easiest way to dispose of batteries and electronics/electrical equipment is to return them to any store that sells them. Consumers can also dispose their used primary and rechargeable batteries, chargers and PUCS within the collection network which generally includes drop-off facilities at municipal depots, businesses, institutions, etc.
*Make battery recycling part of your overall recycling effort to avoid extra trip increasing your carbon footprint.
