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 battery.
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.
