 (July 2004) Energizer develops Multi-Drain watch batteries.  The new Silver-oxide cell chemistry allows the battery to be used in both low drain (analog) and high drain (digital) watches.  The new cell chemistry has resulted in a performance improvement by increasing the shelf life of the battery by 40%, from the current five years to seven years.  The Multi-Drain range will be available in August 2004.
