Full Answer

The length of time that a Duracell battery lasts varies based on two main factors. The first factor is the size of the battery. The second factor is the amount of energy that is drawn from the battery. Thus, a small Duracell battery generating the same amount of energy as a large Duracell battery burns out faster.
