A battery is one of those things that you always seem to forget until the last minute and this is why you often end up using batteries that are inferior quality and run out in next to no time. If you do need to get batteries you have to make sure that you get a good brand so that you know that they are going to last a good while before they have to be replaced. Duracell is a name that is now synonymous with quality in this industry and its batteries famously last far longer than many other brands.

AAA and AA batteries are some of the most popular sizes of battery and are used for everything from portable radios to remote controls. They are available in packs of four, and it is a good idea to get what you need and then pick up an extra pack so you always have a spare when you need it.

The C batteries are often used for bigger items while the 9V square batteries are usually put into things such as smoke alarms, so you need to know that the battery is going to have a good life; choosing a Duracell battery will give you the peace of mind that you need.

Duracell are one of the most famous battery brands in the world. The company has it's origins in the 1920s, producing mercury batteries for military equipment. In the 1960s, they produced their first alkaline batteries, and introduced the name Duracell, from the words "durable cell."
