Duracell PowerPix - NiOx technology |
Available in AA and AAA sizes, PowerPix utilizes advanced NiOx technology, a Nickel Oxy Hydroxide formulation that delivers significantly longer-lasting battery performance in digital cameras when compared with an ordinary alkaline battery. The new battery provides an "always ready" disposable source of power to ensure that consumers never miss an important photo. Combining convenience and value, PowerPix is especially well suited for those who use their digital cameras with moderate frequency - such as two or three times a month.
PowerPix digital camera battery
"Digital cameras are central to consumers' lives, and these sophisticated devices have high energy demands," said Mark Bertolami, vice president of marketing, Duracell. "Approximately three out of four consumers currently power their digital cameras with ordinary alkaline batteries, which can lead to frustrating results. Fueled by an advanced technology, PowerPix will deliver longer-lasting performance and a more satisfying experience - especially for moderate camera users."
Duracell PowerPix - Price & Availability
PowerPix will be available in February 2006 in mass market, drug, grocery and electronics stores throughout North America. The new battery will be sold in four- and eight-cell packs in AA size and four-cell packs in AAA size. The suggested retail price for a four-cell pack is $5.99.
Educational digital imaging guide for photographers
In conjunction with the PowerPix launch, Duracell will also introduce an educational digital imaging guide to help digital camera owners find the best battery power solution based on their typical photography habits. A recent survey, conducted by Opinion Research Corporation on behalf of Duracell, found that one-third of digital camera owners need help determining which battery to choose for their digital cameras. Duracell's new digital imaging guide will appear on product packaging and at select retail outlets in early 2006.
