Duracell develops battery cost savings calculator

Duracell subsidiary Procell has developed a cost calculator to help Australian businesses identify hidden costs as well as the environmental impact associated with battery replacement.

The new tool uses Australian-specific data to help businesses identify the right batteries to help them save thousands of dollars a year.

Duracell estimates that some sectors, such as hospitality, could save up to 44% on their battery-related costs simply by selecting the right battery.

The cost savings calculator is being presented at the Total Facilities 2022 facilities management conference this week.

Duracell B2B Senior Director Jane Lo said one of the objectives of the calculator is to help inform Australian businesses that different devices have different battery needs. High-frequency, high-drain devices such as those operating motors or mechanisms have very different needs to intermittent low-drain devices such as those used in blood glucose meters, she said.

“In today’s highly automated, always-on business environment, there’s a heavy reliance on battery-operated devices for companies to operate seamlessly. As a result, business expenditure on battery replacements has increased,” Lo said.

“Batteries play an important role in the overall safety, performance and reliability of many devices whether in a hospitality, security or medical setting. If it’s buying batteries for remote controls, smoke alarms or sanitiser dispensers, we want to help businesses explore ways to increase efficiencies by replacing batteries less and save more.”
