The Duracell Procell Battery Review Festival: We’re Feeling the Love

At Medic Batteries, we get one positive Duracell Procell battery review after another from professional users. Public safety officials, performing arts professionals, medical personnel, and others—the people who depend on batteries every day—just can’t say enough good things about the Duracell Procell. Frankly, we’re not surprised. These professional users have a lot riding on battery performance, and once they discover the performance, reliability, and long-term cost savings they get with Procell—not to mention how much easier it makes their jobs—it’s only natural to want to pass along the good word.

Duracell Procell battery review

What makes the Procell the right choice? Simply put, Duracell made the Procell to meet every critical need of a professional user. Built with the same outstanding Coppertop technology on the inside, they’re charged slightly higher for better performance and longer life. They’re packaged in bulk, for economy and convenience, and are date-stamped and guaranteed fresh—unlike the well-aged specimens you may find at the local store.

So is there a difference? In a word, yes. But don’t take our word for it … check out the stories of users who have posted a Duracell Procell battery review:

“I am a professional sound designer who works with wireless microphones on a daily basis. The Duracell Procells have become my go-to batteries for all of my wireless needs. These batteries discharge differently than normal AA batteries—they maintain a more linear level of power discharge rather than trailing off like normal AA batteries. This translates to a more reliable and steady performance from wireless transmitters. In Shure SLX and UHF-R systems these batteries can deliver a reliable eight hours of use, and in ideal conditions, sometimes more than 10. Because I never reuse batteries from performance to performance value is of utmost importance, and, with the volume discounts offers, I am able to minimize my costs.”

“At our church I was using a regular 9V on four of our wireless mics and was going through many batteries in a month. After switching to the Procells, I can run one battery on a wireless mic way longer than with a regular battery. This not only saved us money but saved me a lot of aggravation. I would also recommend Medic Batteries to anyone. Doing business with them is very smooth.”

“These Duracell Procell batteries are the only batteries we use at our church for all of our wireless gear. Very reliable and consistent.”

“I play in a band, and my guitars use 9v batteries for the pre-amps. I have found these to last longer than the Coppertops I purchase at the local big box store.”

“These batteries last longer than the Coppertops from the store—roughly two and a quarter times as long!”

From “As strange as it sounds, when I see the AA sized Duracell Procell batteries I have to smile. The snappy design on them (black, gold and silver) visually sets them apart from other Duracell products, but for me it means that I can pop these into my CD player and not have to worry about the power draining even if I have it on for hours at a time. Likewise, my trusty Web cam goes through batteries like crazy, unless I toss in a few of the Procells and then I’m set for at least a month, no matter how much I use it. Suffice it to say, if you want an AA-sized battery that is going to last a hell of a lot longer than anything that’s currently on the market, then Duracell Procells are the way to go.”

There it is, straight from the users who love them. We know that your personal Duracell Procell battery review will be just as positive, or we wouldn’t sell them. Go ahead and review some for yourself—Medic Batteries makes it convenient and affordable to step up to Procell performance. We’ve got Duracell Procells in discount bulk packs, carefully stored in our own warehouse. Every battery is guaranteed to be fresh, and you’ll get them fast, because we have same-day shipping for orders received during business hours.

The ZTS Battery Tester: 9V Battery Status Without the Guesswork

How do you know if you have a good, charged 9V battery? If it’s not brand new and you don’t have a battery tester, 9V battery condition is just a guess; it might be much closer to a no-volt battery. So, just to make sure, you touch it to your tongue and feel a bit of electric shock. There’s your answer . . . the battery is good, right?

Really? It’s 2010, and our most advanced testing device is the tongue? The average house has 20 battery-operated devices, and it’s really important that many of them—like your smoke detector, flashlights, and, of course, portable video game consoles—have reliable power. Your safety (or, when it comes to toys, your sanity) depends on it. The bottom line is that the tongue test—and that little power meter on some batteries—tells you nothing about battery performance in the real world.

It’s time to sort out the good from the bad in that overstuffed battery drawer. ZTS has developed a precise, affordable battery tester that tells you exactly how much performance is left in a battery. No more digging around, trying battery after battery until you find a good one—and, even then, not knowing how long it will last.

The ZTS battery tester shows the amount of battery life remaining as an easy-to-understand percentage value, and it’s an extraordinarily versatile battery tester. 9V, AA, photo—virtually any commonly used household battery can be tested. Better still, it’s an easy affair to use the ZTS battery tester. 9V batteries are tested simply by placing the top of the battery directly on the tester, without any settings or adjustments.

Medic Batteries takes pride in offering the best products for life’s power needs. The ZTS battery tester fits right into our lineup, offering a fast and reliable way to know when you’re good to go and when you might need to pick up a few packs of our discount batteries. Either way, Medic Batteries has you covered with exceptional customer service, great prices, and—we’re happy to say—a fabulous way to save your tongue.

Batteries for Smoke Detectors: The Importance of Choosing the Right Smoke Alarm Batteries

It’s the middle of the night, and your smoke detector starts beeping—not because of a fire, but because the battery is going dead. It’s called a “nuisance alarm,” and we all do the same thing: We’re not going to search for smoke alarm batteries at that hour, so we remove the battery and go back to bed.

The new battery may not ever make its way into the detector. Batteries for smoke detectors are not a lot of fun to replace. They’re way up there on a wall or ceiling, the ladder’s out in the garage … it’s just too easy to ignore unless you do it right away.

There is a strong reason to not forget about your smoke alarm batteries. An estimated 40 percent of household smoke alarms have missing or dead batteries, and missing batteries—removed to silence a nuisance alarm—were a factor in nearly 350 residential fire deaths last year.* That trip up the ladder sounds a little more appealing now, doesn’t it?

Fortunately, Medic Batteries offers a battery that can stop nuisance alarms and preserve your safety for a decade. Ultralife lithium smoke alarm batteries last five times longer than alkaline and 10 times longer than carbon-zinc. One Ultralife 9-volt battery can keep ionization-type detectors up and running for 10 years, which is why they are original equipment in most premium, long-life smoke detectors.

With Ultralife, you’ll spend less money on batteries for smoke detectors and less time replacing them. And with Medic Batteries, upgrading every detector on you own is easy and affordable. We offer discount bulk battery packages and same-day shipping, so you’ll get the best price and be safe and secure in no time.

Medic Batteries takes batteries—and your safety—seriously. Spend a little time to check your smoke alarm batteries. If they’re old, are missing, or simply don’t say Ultralife, call us at 1-800-479-6334 and let us give you the security only Ultralife can give.
