Environmentally Friendly

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.
