A better life, a better world

Panasonic is committed to creating a better life and a better world, continuously contributing to the evolution of society and to the happiness of people around the globe.

Revolutionizing smart energy

Panasonic is committed to creating a better life and a better world, continuously contributing to the evolution of society and to the happiness of people around the globe.

Creating new life with energy

Batteries are essential to daily life. All around us, in the devices we need to work and play, Panasonic energy is helping us not to live, but to flourish. For more than 90 years, we've been creating products most trusted for performance safety, and reliability. Our technology is driven by continuous research and development as we find new ways to extend endurance. Passion for quality has led to the supply of over 200 billion dry-cell batteries (as of March 2016) to more than 120 countries, establishing Panasonic as the premier brand for convenience and value. With superior technology and a firm commitment to sustainability, we're leading the world to new life and new possibilities.

Leading energy solutions for the future

Panasonic’s vision for the future centers on developing products that offer you convenience, performance, and sustainability. We’re delivering on that with the supply of sophisticated lithium-ion battery technology for electric vehicles and the development of solar energy, particularly for people in remote areas. We are committed to improving quality of life, not only for people today, but for generations to come as well.

Environmental responsibility

Panasonic’s approach covers four key areas: research and development, production, quality control, and environmental responsibility. These guiding principles are governed by one desire: to provide clean, safe, affordable energy to people from all walks of life.

Developing high-quality, high-capacity batteries

Continual research into materials, processes, and system technology has resulted in high-value products that exceed customer expectations in every respect.

Integral computer-controlled production lines

Almost all batteries are made on fully automated production lines for superior consistency of quality and greater efficiency. The vast majority of our products are made in contaminant-free clean rooms.

Best quality control

Every cell is subjected to severe five-category testing covering discharge performance, leak resistance, shelf life, performance in extreme environments, and product stability over time.

Eco-friendly processes and design

Panasonic is committed to reducing its impact on the environment by reducing harmful emissions.

Innovating on the World Stage

Over the last century, Panasonic energy has become synonymous with performance, safety, and reliability. Driven forward by constant scientific research, we aim to develop products that open doors to new life and new possibilities today and in the future.
