Panasonic’s approach covers four key areas: research and development, production, quality control, and environmental responsibility. The guiding principles of continual product improvement and the strictest quality control are governed by a desire to deliver premium-value products to customers with the least possible impact on the environment.
More than 200 billion* batteries sold worldwide
Since Panasonic first began in-house production of dry batteries in 1931, we have shipped more than 200,000,000,000 cells to all corners of the globe. And while we continue to drive battery performance evolution forward, one thing hasn’t changed: our desire to provide clean, safe, affordable energy to people from all walks of life.
Developing High-Quality, High-Capacity Batteries
Continual research into materials, processes, and system technology at our lab facilities has kept Panasonic at the forefront of battery development. A focus on improving safety and endurance has resulting in high-value products that exceed customer expectations in every respect.
Producing Products Without Specified Harmful Substances
Panasonic Manganese batteries contain no lead, mercury, or cadmium, while our Coin batteries contain zero mercury.
Integral Computer-Controlled Production Lines
Almost all batteries are made on fully automated and computer-controlled production lines for superior consistency of quality and greater efficiency.
Contaminant-free Manufacturing Facilities
The vast majority of our products are made in contaminant-free clean rooms that exceed industry environmental standards. Advanced techniques ensure the same consistent quality no matter where our products are purchased.
Best Quality Control
We lead in quality with the industry’s largest testing facilities. All of the two million cells we make each year are subjected to severe five-category testing covering discharge performance, leak resistance, shelf life, performance in extreme environments, and product stability over time.
Eco-friendly Processes and Design
Panasonic is committed to reducing its impact on the environment by reducing harmful emissions.
The Green Certification System and eneloop
In compliance with Green Certificate System, eneloop batteries are charged with solar power prior to sale*, helping to create a Clean Energy Loop.
