AA, AAA, C, D and 9V batteries

The majority of battery usage is covered by just 5 sizes: AA, AAA, C, D and 9V. Several chemistry variants are available, each suited to different circumstances.
  • Alkaline batteries (coded LRxx) are the most widely used, and operate well across the full range of loads
  • High power Alkaline variants offer enhanced performance under high power loads
    • e.g. Duracell Ultra Power, Energizer Max Plus, Varta Longlife Max Power
  • AA Lithium batteries, AAA batteries bulk and 9V offer the best performance under high power / high pulse loads and at low temperatures
    • e.g. Energizer Ultimate Lithium
  • Zinc batteries (coded Rxx) are for lower power devices where performance is not important
