Leading the Carge
Meanwhile, Duracell has increased the capacity of its AA NiMH rechargeable batteries, and introduced a new charger for high-drain digital devices like cameras. In addition, the company upgraded its 1800 mAh AA rechargeable batteries to a 2050 mAh capacity, adding approximately 14 percent more power on a single charge. "With the growth of digital cameras and other high-drain devices on the market, there is a strong demand for longer-lasting rechargeable power sources and rapid chargers," says Kevin Janco, Duracell's specialty business director. "Since so many consumers are new to using rechargeable batteries, it's key for them to have rechargeable options."
Duracell has plans to launch a thin, rectangular-shaped CP1 lithium primary prismatic battery. It's disposable, and it's compatible with Nikon's Coolpix 3700 and Samsung's Digimax U-CA 3.
