Industrial Alkaline Batteries

Industrial Alkaline batteries are designed and packaged to meet the needs of professional, B2B usage. Robust, reliable performance in a wide range of applications and usage. Leading examples include:
  • Procell by Duracell
  • Varta Industrial Pro
  • Panasonic Powerline
  • Energizer Industrial
  • VIPRO Industrial Alkaline

Standard Battery Variants

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
  • Industrial Alkaline batteries (e.g. Procell by Duracell, Energizer Industrial and Varta Industrial) are designed and packaged to meet the needs of professional, B2B usage.
  • High power Alkaline variants offer enhanced performance under high power loads
    • e.g. Duracell Ultra Power, Energizer Max Plus, Varta Longlife Max Power
  • AA, AAA and 9V Lithium batteries offer the best performance under high power / high pulse loads and at low temperatures
    • e.g. Energizer Ultimate Lithium
  • ​Standard size rechargeble batteries have improved significantly.
    • ​Most are pre-charged when new and stay charged when not in use.
    • Remember that rechargeable battery performance is not just about capacity. Higher capacities tend to be traded off against cycle life and robustness to overcharging and discharging.
  • Zinc batteries (coded Rxx) are for lower power devices where performance is not important

Specialist Alkaline and Zinc Batteries

There are many specialist, single use batteries for less common applications:
  • Special size alkaline batteries for electronics and security devices (e.g. LR1, MN21)
  • Large alkaline and zinc batteries for lighting applications (e.g. 4LR25, 4R25, AD28)

Button and Coin Cells

A wide range of long life button and coin shaped batteries are available - packaged ready for resale/distribution or in bulk format for manufacturers:
  • Alkaline button cells for electronic and security devices (e.g. LR44)
  • Lithium coin cells for electronics and security devices (e.g. CR2032, CR2015, CR2016)
  • Silver oxide button cells for watches and other very small devices (e.g. SR44)
  • Zinc-air button cells for hearing aids and other in-the-ear devices (e.g. 675, 312, 13, 10)
