Energizer introduces new consumer-focused brand identity fronted by iconic Mr Energizer
Looking for a partner with super strength, an upbeat outlook, quick wit, endless endurance and dedication to powering the next adventure or achievement, big or small? Look no further. Mr EnergizerTM is your answer, and he’s more vibrant than ever.
Energizer®, makers of Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™, the world’s longest-lasting AA battery, today introduced the brand’s new global re-energised look in the Malaysian market. This includes new packaging, in-store displays, logo and advertising for its battery product lines, as well as an even more prominent role for Mr EnergizerTM, the brand’s beloved charismatic character. The new visual treatments, to be rolled out nationwide in Malaysia beginning June 2019, will provide a contemporary look with a lighter, brighter presentation and a helpful new approach, with distinct colours deployed to help consumers more easily and intuitively find the best product to suit their needs. Whether it’s the world’s longest-lasting Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ AA battery, a lithium coin battery or an Energizer Recharge® rechargeable battery, the new packaging and colour schemes will help consumers quickly identify the right choice and be on their way.
“We spent three years developing our new look, talking with consumers and researching their preferences to deliver an experience that’s both powerful and fun,” said Diane Lee, Business Director – Malaysia & Singapore, Energizer® Holdings Inc. “They told us they want bright, clear and helpful packaging that will stand out in a cluttered aisle. And we know they love Mr EnergizerTM, so we’ve made sure consumers will get more of him and his larger-than-life personality everywhere, from in-store to our advertising.”
“The Energizer® brand has been trusted by Malaysians for more than 40 years. With a reenergised brand and more intuitive packaging to help consumers make the right choice every time, we are confident in growing our brand from strength to strength in Malaysia while maintaining the proven formulas that they have come to know and trust. Beyond that, we are also introducing our new Max Plus™ range today to give consumers even more of the long lasting power they want, besides announcing a collaboration with Booking.com that will take Malaysians further on exciting journeys,” she added.
Mr EnergizerTM is the embodiment of physical energy, a living Energizer® battery who’s quick with a wink and a smile and always up for a new challenge or a friendly competition. He’s an animated character who lives in the real world and marvels at it with curious enthusiasm. His lasting endurance and fun-loving personality reflect the spirit of the Energizer® brand.
The changes represent the first major update to the Energizer® look since 2008, and will come to life across the entire Energizer® portfolio, starting with batteries.
In conjunction with the reenergised brand, Energizer® also introduced the new Max Plus™ range – Energizer®’s No 1 Longest Lasting AA & AAA alkaline batteries. The new line of performance alkaline batteries is designed to have increased energy density, power storage and optimised voltage, to give Malaysian consumers even more of the performance they seek. Energizer® Max Plus™ batteries – the longest lasting alkaline batteries from Energizer® yet, have a 12-Year Shelf Life and last up to 14% longer during use, thus creating less waste from the disposal of drained batteries.
