Duracell pioneered the Alkaline Manganese Dioxide electrochemical system nearly 40 years ago. In the 1960-1970 decade, this battery system rapidly became the popular choice of designers in the ever-widening field of consumer electronics.
Alkaline or Alkaline Manganese Dioxide cells, have many advantages over zinc-carbon cells including higher energy output.
- In comparison to the zinc-carbon cell, the alkaline cell delivers up to ten times the ampere-hour capacity at high and continuous drain conditions, with its performance at low temperatures also being superior to other conventional aqueous electrolyte primary cells.
- Its more effective, secure seal provides excellent resistance to leakage and corrosion.
