When choosing batteries, it is very important to choose the right type of battery for your needs. No matter what type of gadget you are dealing with, there is always a specific type of battery that it needs.There is obviously a wide selection of batteries for everyday use, but the two most common ones are Alkaline batteries and Lithium batteries. Before really researching both types of batteries, I really did not know the difference. Alkaline batteries are the most commonly used disposable batteries today. They are used in devices such as digital cameras, remote controls, etc. These types of batteries cannot be charged. Once they run out of energy, you throw them away and replace them with new ones. Alkaline batteries last for long periods of time and they actually have no trouble performing at both high and low temperatures. The most popular brands of Alkaline batteries that you can buy today are Duracell, Energizer, Sanyo and Panasonic.
Lithium batteries are pretty much the same as Alkaline batteries. However, do not confuse them with Lithium Ion batteries, which are rechargeable. They are able to store and supply much more energy than Alkaline batteries, which is why they are much more expensive. Yet they do last longer. Another interesting fact is that they are approximately 33 percent lighter than the average Alkaline battery. Due to how long Lithium batteries last, they are actually becoming the more popular choice for dispoable batteries. They can also be used in devices such as digital cameras and MP3 players. The most popular brands of Lithium batteries that you can buy today are Duracell, Tenergy Propel, Panasonic and Energizer.
