Panasonic, one of the world’s leading battery manufacturing companies, is expanding its manufacturing capabilities in the United States. The CR-2/3AZ lithium primary battery currently being manufactured in Indonesia will also be produced in Columbus, GA, by the end of 2018.
The CR-2/3AZ cell offers important features, including: superior reliability, up to ten years; and high current pulse discharge capability. The cell uses Manganese-based cathode material to deliver better temperature tolerance to operate in harsh environments. It is suitable for smoke alarms, C0 sensors, and meters, as well as a variety of other applications needing longer life.
“This will benefit customers in a variety of ways — including lower transportation costs and timelier customer support,” says Kanji Kawakami, Chief Engineer for OEM and Industrial Batteries. “The production shift is a testimony to an ongoing commitment to supplying customers the highest quality and broadest line of battery technologies, while addressing current market conditions.”
Panasonic is a leading supplier of batteries offering advanced cell manufacturing and product technologies, superior quality, and one of the broadest lines of primary and rechargeable batteries in the industry.
Panasonic’s product line includes lithium-ion, lithium coin, lithium primary cylindrical, nickel metal hydride, valve regulated lead acid and alkaline batteries. for more information on cylindrical lithium cells, Panasonic’s lithium cell product line (or additional Panasonic battery products) email [email protected],or visit na.industrial.panasonic.com/products/batteries.
