“I am honored to announce that the Energizer Ultimate Lithium has set the Guinness World Records title for the longest-lasting AA battery cell,” said Mike Marcotte, Guinness World Records adjudicator.
Energizer said the record was announced after rigorous testing proved the Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries’ performance in a number of real-world situations such as powering digital cameras, toys, lighting and audio devices. Energizer said its Ultimate Lithium AA batteries outlasted the competition across the board to secure the Guinness World Records title.
“Energizer batteries have powered many amazing moments in history, and we’re not stopping now,” said Lori Shambro, vice president of global marketing at Energizer Holdings. “We’re delighted to add a Guinness World Records title to our legacy, which will be as long-lasting as our AA batteries.”
Energizer said it introduced the world’s first AA lithium battery in 1992. The company added that the batteries hold power for up to 20 years in storage, perform in extreme temperatures from -40° F to 140°F, weigh 33% less than alkaline AA batteries, and are guaranteed leak-proof under standard use.
