Two new Panasonic AA size Digital Xtreme batteries power car! - Panasonic Batteries have launched a new battery powerful enough to run a life-sized car. Incredibly, the Xtreme Power Car needs no petrol – it just needs the extraordinary power of two AA size Digital Xtreme Power Batteries!
Digital Xtreme Power Batteries keep their voltage on a high, stable level that results in digital products operating at an optimum level, for longer. The results of this can be seen in day-to-day items such as electric toothbrushes, which when fitted with the batteries run for longer while MP3 and CD players play more music.
Tim Clark, Marketing and Communications Manager at Panasonic Batteries commented, “The Digital Xtreme Power car is the perfect way to demonstrate just how exciting this new technology is. A battery with the groundbreaking energy to power a car can just as easily sit in your digital camera and inevitably consumers want a battery that delivers optimum and longer power.”
In order to produce improved power performance and durability from the Digital Xtreme Power Battery, Panasonic Batteries has utilised new materials and a new production process. For the cathode (the plus side of the battery), Oxy Nickel Hydroxide and new technologically developed manganese dioxide and graphite have been employed. This has been integrated with a tablet mix control system that controls and increases the amount of these materials per battery, resulting in a higher discharge performance. Alongside the new materials Panasonic Batteries has enlisted new vacuum pouring technology which enables a higher quantity of electrolyte to be inserted in the battery. The culmination of this new technology is a battery with outstanding performance.
The Digital Xtreme Power Battery is available in the UK from all good retail outlets in a 4-pack and 2-pack format. The 4-pack Digital Xtreme Power Battery has a RRP of £4.99 and the 2-pack retails at £2.99.
