Panasonic brings alkaline battery power to a new level

panasonic-platinum-powerThere is always room for improvement when it comes to modern day technological advancements, especially in the realm of battery power. The thing is, each time the ante is increased in terms of battery power and capacity, hardware manufacturers and software programmers alike will try to take advantage of the longer lasting battery or higher capacity by introducing more power hungry chipsets or apps that run a whole lot more commands simultaneously. Panasonic has introduced its Platinum Power batteries a couple of years ago that brings consumer level AA and AAA batteries to a whole new level, but this time around things have taken a turn for the better with their all new Platinum Power batteries.

The new Platinum Power AA and AAA batteries are touted to last 33% longer, which have been specially designed for high-drain consumer devices. With these being able to last 33% longer than Panasonic’s regular alkaline cells, you can be sure that they are not going to come cheap, but neither will they break the bank, either.

These new Platinum Power AA and AAA batteries will be powered by Evolta technology, and happen to be the most powerful Panasonic alkaline cells that can be purchased in North America. They boast of Advanced Formula, Triple Tough Coating, Anti-Leak Protection, and protect power for up to 10 years, now how about that? This means you might want to take a closer look at the “expiry date” of the Platinum Power batteries’ packaging the next time you decide to pick up a bunch.

The new Panasonic Platinum Power batteries will arrive packaged in standard four and eight pack sizes, where there is also a wide range of multi-packs with up to 48 cells. The four-pack AA size will retail for $3.99 a pop, and you can even opt to purchase it from online stores.
