We have just started getting marketing information from Duracell about their new line of Procell Intense Power alkaline batteries. They are being promoted as alkalines for high drain devices, and if, indeed their performance is markedly superior to the performance of regular Procells, it could make a big difference for wireless mic users.
There are few devices that would be considered more “high drain” than wireless mics, but if a user is going to pay for extra capacity and performance but still discard the batteries after a single use, then it will make no sense to pay more.
We have requested some specific details on performance comparisons and will set up some testing ourselves as soon as we can get our hands on some actual product.
Check back here soon. We’ll have more information.
