With the development of technology and the increase of electrical appliances, batteries also play an increasingly important role in our lives. Flashlights, mobile phones, electronic scales, remote controls, etc. all have to use batteries. Various batteries emerge in an endless stream, and different electrical appliances use different batteries to play their role.
Today I will first introduce the common types of batteries.

#1-Carbon Battery

Carbon battery. Also called carbon zinc manganese dry battery. Carbon batteries have the characteristics of low price and reliable use, and there are many types and prices to choose from. Mainly used for electrical appliances with low power consumption, such as clocks, wireless mice, etc., some appliances with higher current batteries cannot support them, such as semiconductor radios, flashlights, etc., also need to use carbon batteries. Common products are No. 1, No. 2, No. 5, No. 7, 9V, etc.

#2-Alkaline Battery

Alkaline battery. Alkaline batteries, also known as alkaline dry batteries, are the best-performing varieties in the zinc-manganese battery series. It is suitable for large discharge capacity and long-term use. The battery is mercury-free and does not need to be intentionally recycled. The battery has the characteristics of large capacity, durability, high current and stable output. Therefore, it is mostly used in remote controllers, electronic cameras, toy racing cars and other equipment that consumes a lot of power. Common products are No. 1, No. 2, No. 5, No. 7, button type and so on.

#3-Ni-MH Battery

Ni-MH battery. NiMH battery is a kind of battery with good performance. Ni-MH batteries are further divided into high-voltage Ni-MH batteries and low-voltage Ni-MH batteries. The disadvantage of nickel-metal hydride batteries and nickel-cadmium batteries is that they cannot be discharged at large currents. The advantage is that the same volume capacity is much higher than that of nickel-cadmium, the memory effect is small, and it is green and clean. Avoid overcharging during use to avoid deterioration of the electrolyte, and store the Ni-MH battery after it is fully charged. Common products: No. 1, No. 2, No. 5, No. 7, button type and other non-standard models.

#4-Lithium-Ion Battery

Lithium-ion battery. A lithium-ion battery is a rechargeable battery that mainly relies on lithium ions to move between positive and negative to work. Lithium-ion battery shells have steel shells and aluminum shells. Aluminum shells have 10%–15% higher capacity than steel shells. Advantages: small size, high capacity, and high voltage. The shapes are cylindrical, square, special-shaped. Commonly used in mobile phone batteries, PDA batteries, laptop batteries.

Lithium battery. rechargeable battery. Lithium batteries are more durable than ordinary nickel-metal hydride batteries and can be recharged more than 1,000 times. He adjusts the voltage through the circuit board, and has always maintained a 1.5V constant voltage output, which is mostly used in repetitive electrical appliances. For example, high-power-consuming toys and electrical appliances that require continuous battery replacement. Common products are lithium rechargeable AA batteries and lithium rechargeable AA batteries.

The above types of batteries are the most common models for household use. Our company is a professional manufacturer of alkaline batteries and carbon batteries. We have more than 20 years of experience in production and export. More guests are welcome to visit our company. We also hope to cooperate with More businesses keep growing.
