Success through innovation
Duracell has a rich history of innovation through continuously developing batteries that are more compact, more powerful, more efficient, and longer lasting than competitor brands. Since the 1940s when the roots of the original company were founded, Duracell has been responsible for many industry firsts, including the first alkaline AA and AAA batteries and the first hearing aid cell button. Duracell batteries were even first to land on the moon and powered the first Logitech wireless mouse making computer work much more convenient.
Duracell’s quest to innovate continues today with products like Duracell Ultra, which is our best and most powerful alkaline battery across all devices. Significant investment in R&D ensures that Duracell products remain the most trusted for everything from the latest high performance smart toy and video game consoles, to portable power technologies rapidly charging smartphones.
