Protecting You and the Environment

Clean, Safe, and Long-Lasting

Manganese is the most commonly used battery type. Panasonic offers manganese cells with no added specified toxic substances, wherever you buy them. Mercury*, lead, and cadmium are replaced with green alternatives that also help to maintain battery life and discharge performance. For low-drain applications, there’s simply no better battery.

* Excluding 9 V batteries.

New Zinc-Alloy Can

Panasonic Manganese combines advanced engineering technologies with high quality at low cost. A key feature is the tough zinc-alloy can, which is not only stronger, but also more resistant to corrosion. Best of all, no lead is added to the eco-friendly zinc-alloy can for safe and convenient disposal and greater peace of mind.

Anti-Leak Protection

Your devices are protected by the most advanced anti-leak battery technology for manganese batteries. Structural weak points in conventional manganese battery structure makes them prone to leakage. Panasonic’s robust design incorporates a stronger collector-rod sealing structure together with nylon inner-tube protection and a metallic outer can. The result: far lower chance of structural failure and leakage.

Zero Lead, Cadmium, or Mercury Added

Panasonic released its first mercury-free battery back in 1991. Now, it’s among the first manufacturers in the world to completely eliminate the use of lead in its manganese batteries. Panasonic Manganese batteries have no added lead, cadmium, or mercury*. This gives peace of mind as you're using the product, and protects the environment after disposal.

* 9 V batteries excepted.
