Energizer Bunny doesn't exist everywhere[edit]

There is no Energizer bunny, nor has there ever been, here in Australia. I cannot understand why. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Davez621 (talkcontribs)

There is no Energizer Bunny in territories where Duracell still uses its bunnies, as the Energizer Bunny began as a parody of the Duracell Bunnies. --Damian Yerrick () 21:16, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Eveready, Ever Ready, Eveready of India?[edit]

Two questions spring to mind:

1) What relation, if any, does Energizer Holdings have to Eveready Industries India (see the Eveready article)?

2) Eveready batteries were, until (I would guess) around 15 years ago, sold as "Ever Ready" here in the UK (if not elsewhere). Does anyone know why this was the case, and why the spelling was changed?

If I remember rightly, Ever Ready UK had three separate lines: Gold Seal (alkaline), Silver Seal (zinc chloride), and Blue Seal (zinc carbon). This was in the mid to late 80s - the Energizer brand was not introduced here until the 90s (I think), replacing Gold Seal.

In the UK, they always had a London Underground-esque logo ("roundel"?) with "Ever Ready" written across the centre. By the mid-90s they were using the same logo, but with "Eveready" in place of "Ever Ready".

In all honesty, I don't think I've seen Eveready batteries (other than "Energizer") on sale in the UK for quite a while now. But for a good number of years (certainly my entire childhood) they seemed to be the "No. 1" brand, with Duracell in second place. 203.49.205.34 14:54, 4 June 2006 (UTC)

I don't know where you got the idea "Ever Ready" was the #1 UK brand, I always thought it was Duracell (could be wrong tho). You can still by Silver and Gold seal Eveready battries in the UK too, as well as Energizer. 74.65.39.59 12:40, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

See [1] for the statement that Ever Ready was the UK leader, and the history of UK manufacturing until 1980. Chemical Engineer (talk) 09:26, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Who is this Energizer Man?[edit]

In the frist sentence it says well known in the U.S. for its energizer man? Do you mean the bunny? I live in the U.S. and am culturally literate, and have never heard of the energizer man.

"Energizer man" on google pulls up 339 entries. "Energizer bunny" pulls up 597,000.

Maybe you have to be over 32 years old to know who this energizer man is....perhaps well known in the U.S. in (enter decades here).

Mark "Jacko" Jackson was the guy before the bunny. I found an ad with him on a DVD of Super Bowl XXII. WAVY 10 19:22, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

The relationship of Everyready and Energizer should be cleared up in article.[edit]

Here is some history from the Energizer site for someone to start with: [2] --Cab88 00:29, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for that link. I too found the article to be very confusing as regards the relationship between Eveready and Energizer. Unfortunately, that link did not really answer any questions. It talks about Eveready only in the past tense, as if the company's name had changed, or as if they stopped making Eveready products. But it never addressed either of those points explicitly. So I sent an email to them, and the answer I got back just now says, "The Energizer brand was introduced in 1980. Eveready products are still being made." Apparently, both Eveready and Energizer are brand names for products made by a company whose name I don't know. I suspect that the website uses the Energizer name because of its popularity. (I am mentioning this only on the Talk page because it counts as Original Research. If someone can find better answers or better sources, please edit the article!)

In the UK, Ever Ready (two words) seems to have become Energizer but there are now Eveready (one word) batteries on sale as well. Are Energizer and Eveready still connected? Biscuittin (talk) 01:23, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Disposable Battery Recycling Program Controversy[edit]

There should be mention of Energizer's controversial opposition to a disposable battery recycling program. --76.122.4.41 (talk) 21:04, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Supervolt[edit]

The fictional company Supervolt is probably not notable enough for a separate article. If anything in the Supervolt article is verifiable it should probably be merged into Energizer Holdings#Advertising. —Snigbrook 13:59, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Cowen[edit]

Recently started an article on flash-lamp which further explains the erroneous Cowen claim that he invented the flashlight. Here is a reference that says Cowen credits himself as the inventor of the flashlight, however is not the actual inventor. David Misell is, patent 617,592.--Doug Coldwell talk 15:09, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Energizer Trojan[edit]

Article needs to be split[edit]

This article needs to be split into two: one article about the holding company Energizer Holdings, Inc., and another about the battery company, which is still formally known as Eveready Battery Company, Inc.. The Eveready Battery Company is the manufacturer of both Eveready and Energizer batteries, and it is just one of the many companies owned by Energizer Holdings. Most of the other have their own pages: Wilkinson Sword, Schick, Playtex and Hawaiian Tropic. Thomas Blomberg (talk) 14:09, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
