Dry batteries are ideal for reliable performance in various applications

Panasonic's alkaline batteries are made from the same basic materials as zinc-carbon batteries, but deliver a generally higher performance on all criteria. These batteries can therefore power high performance; and standard applications. Both battery types are made in Europe and fulfill the highest quality standards.
