Panasonic Oxyride batteries deliver two times longer batery life than Alkaline

Posted on Friday, July 29 2005 @ 12:20:24 CEST by

The Alkaline battery was invented 46 years ago and is used to power many power-hungry electronics devices today such as MP3 players, digital cameras and portable gaming devices. But many people keep complaining about short battery life times so Panasonic is proud to announce they have created a new advancement in battery technology: Oxyride.

They say compared to Alkaline, Oxyrides will be able to last up to twice as long as traditional alkaline batteries at a similar price.

The new Oxyride cell maintains voltage on a high and stable level, which is optimal for powering digital devices such as digital still cameras, handheld games and portable audio products. In independent lab testing, new AA-size Oxyride cells lasted twice as long as alkaline cells in digital cameras, resulting in double the amount of pictures and more rapid flash recovery. The batteries averaged 1.5 times more power than Panasonic’s alkaline cells for more playing time in other high-drain digital and electronic devices, such as MP3 and CD players.

The Oxyride Extreme Power battery was developed with technology based on a combination of newly developed materials and an advanced manufacturing process. The newly adopted cathode materials (Oxy Nickel Hydroxide and newly developed manganese dioxide and graphite) allow an increase in the quantity of the pouring amount inside the battery and a controlled mixing ratio, leading to higher voltage and current. Additionally, a new vacuum pouring technology enables the quantity of electrolyte in the battery to be increased, resulting in higher durability. With the combination of these technological developments, Panasonic’s new Oxyride Extreme Power battery allows users to enjoy the benefits of improved power performance and longevity. (See Oxyride white paper for more details.)

Four-pack AA and AAA-size Oxyrides batteries will be available soon in stores for $3.99.
