Energizer to debut mercury-free batteries this fall


ST. LOUIS Energizer plans to roll out a new line of eco-friendly hearing aid batteries this fall. The company plans to debut its mercury-free hearing aid batteries on or before Oct. 1 at all major retailers.

The hearing aid batteries will come in four sizes and will be the first batteries of their kind to contain no mercury, a heavy metal that ends up in landfills when the batteries are thrown out.

“While the amount of mercury we removed was small in comparison to other mercury containing products, we’re nevertheless pleased to be taking the lead with our hearing aid batteries,” said Serge Traylor, Energizer brand manager.
