Batteries Technical Info
Types of Batteries
Carbon Zinc: Provide economical power in devices requiring light to moderate drain such as remote controls, flashlights, smoke detectors and radios.
Alkaline: Designed for broadest category of heavy current and continuous use devices and have a longer shelf life and higher energy density than carbon zinc batteries.
Lithium: Designed for optimum performance in high drain / high tech devices including electronic medical and portable electronic devices, calculators and watches. Lithium batteries can be used in place of alkaline batteries in most instances to provide a longer life for a device and superior performance in extreme temperatures.
Silver Oxide: Miniature battery product primarily used in small electronic devices such as watches and car alarm remotes.
Zinc Air: Primarily used in hearing aids and can be used in place of silver oxide batteries in most instances to provide a longer life for the device.
NiCd (Nickel Cadmium): Rechargeable battery used primarily for cordless and wireless phones, power tools and emergency lighting.
NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride): Rechargeable battery with a higher energy density and can provide up to 4 times the capacity of the equivalent NiCd battery.
Lead Acid: Wet-cell rechargeable battery with a large power to weight ratio. Commonly used in large back-up power supplies.
Lithium-ion: Rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries have no memory effect and do not use poisonous metals, such as lead, mercury, or cadmium.
