A primary battery (non-rechargeable) often used in electronics applications
requiring heavy currents for long periods of time (i.e. cd players, radios).
Alkaline batteries can deliver more than 50-100% more total energy than conventional
carbon zinc batteries of the same size. They are very popular in consumer applications.
A primary battery that is quickly entering mainstream electronic designs, particularly
in consumer, portable equipment and non-volatile memory back up applications
where small size, long life, and low cost are the primary requirements. Lithium
batteries have superior cold temperature performance and a shelf life of 5-10
years. Lithium batteries last up to 5 times longer than a standard alkaline
A primary battery engineered with a unique, patented titanium compound and combined
with advanced cell construction. Titanium batteries deliver longer lasting (3.5
times standard alkaline), more powerful performance for even the most demanding
high tech devices.
The most popular battery used today. Lead acid batteries main application is
for the automobile industry, although it has a growing number of other applications.
Its advantages are low cost, high voltage per cell and good capacity life. Disadvantages
are poor low temperature characteristics, it is relatively heavy, and it cannot
be left in a discharged state for too long without being damaged.
