For the third consecutive year, Duracell AGM batteries, made by East Penn, are powering a special project at Times Square, New York City. At midnight on New Year’s Eve, these advanced batteries will provide extreme power to the hundreds of light bulbs that illuminate the 2011 numerals. When the world-famous Ball drops, the numerals will stay lit throughout the broadcast coverage of the event and well into the New Year.
