Consumers want a battery they can trust to serve as the heart of their treasured devices, and the Good Housekeeping Seal is one more example that Duracell is trusted everywhere
Bethel, CT (PRWEB) March 10, 2009
When it comes to assuring battery buyers about product quality, Duracell has always led the way by providing a money back guarantee so consumers can be confident that the hearts of their devices are getting the best power value for the money. Now, Good Housekeeping magazine is recognizing Duracell with the Good Housekeeping Seal. Only products that have been evaluated and accepted by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute can earn the Seal, which also provides an additional limited warranty against defects.
"Consumers want a battery they can trust to serve as the heart of their treasured devices, and the Good Housekeeping Seal is one more example that Duracell is trusted everywhere," said Rick June, vice president and general manager, North America. "We're proud to have stood behind the quality of our products for more than 40 years, and it's great to add the 100-year tradition of the Good Housekeeping Seal."
Founded in 1900, the Good Housekeeping Research Institute is dedicated to informing and educating consumers through product evaluations. The Good Housekeeping Seal provides assurance to the magazine's readers that the products advertised are backed by a two-year limited warranty against being defective.
Duracell has a "Trusted Everywhere" reputation that provides the theme for a long-running series of television commercials that highlight the key devices that will only use Duracell. It's a list that includes medical devices, microphones at top productions, child safety equipment and equipment on NASA space missions, just to name a few.
