Celebrating 10 years of eneloop rechargeable batteries16th April 2015     By: Panasonic Media

November 2015 marks the 10th anniversary of eneloop rechargeable batteries and a variety of activity is taking place globally to celebrate this significant milestone.

Panasonic's mascot eneloopy the dog has arrived to celebrate eneloop's anniversary in New Zealand. eneloopy will be travelling throughout the country to spread the word on rechargeable batteries and environmental sustainability.

We will be giving away five 'Recharge Yourself' hampers (valued at $200) each month. For more details on how to win, CLICK HERE. All entries will also go in the draw to win a major domestic travel pack, drawn in November.

Panasonic is continuously developing our battery technology to offer greater convenience and value, a higher level of performance and improved environmental sustainability.

Ten years ago, an idea was developed that batteries could be reused over and over again. This "looping energy" concept became eneloop, now recognised worldwide by millions of consumers as the premier rechargeable battery brand.

Developing technologies that make our batteries last longer is essential to Panasonic's environmental sustainability goals and as a result eneloop batteries can be recharged up to 2,100 times. Each year 15 billion disposable batteries end up in landfills worldwide, using eneloop rechargeable can help stop a large number of batteries from ending up in landfills. eneloop batteries are also pre-charged at the factory using solar power, and are ready to be used immediately from the packet.
