LOS ANGELES, Ca. - Performance Designed Products, LLC ("PDP") announced today that it is partnering with Energizer (NYSE: ENR), the world's number one selling rechargeable battery brand, to introduce an elite series of products to power game controllers.

The Energizer® charging docks, charging cables and battery packs will power the Wii, XBOX 360 and PS3 game consoles and controllers. These products make recharging simpler.

"When you buy Energizer branded products, you know that you are getting a safe, dependable, and high-quality product," said John Moore, Vice President of Marketing for PDP. "The results of our independent survey were crystal clear with over 90% of gamers and moms choosing Energizer over the current rechargeable gaming solutions."

"Partnering with PDP makes sense for us, and it makes sense for consumers," said Danielle Kyriakos, Director of Global Marketing for Energizer. "The Energizer power accessories will help gamers have a longer, more enjoyable gaming experience - a key benefit of Energizer products, Keep Going.™"

Game controllers are high-drain devices, so gamers who play frequently find that a rechargeable solution is the right power source for them. Energizer, the global leader in rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries, has been offering consumers a variety of chargers and reusable batteries to match the needs of consumers. Rechargeable power solutions offer a power source that is convenient and always available.

"This partnership brings a great benefit to our consumers who want the most economical and appropriate power solution," said Moore. "Energizer's rechargeable technology, combined with our products, enables us to deliver cool-looking products that add more style to any gamer's setup."

The Energizer branded products have a suggested retail price ranging from $9.99 to $39.99. PDP's products are part of a growing battery charger market. That market sold more than 5 million units with a combined retail value of over $130 million from May 2007 through April 2008.
