In our technology-driven world, practically everything runs on batteries. In addition to the familiar AAA to D-cell batteries sold at most retail stores, there are special battery types for laptop computers, cameras, phones and watches. And your car won’t get very far without a battery, either. These battery-related terms might help you save money and make it easier to buy the right product for your needs.
Alkaline – A type of battery used in such electronics applications as radios and CD players. They are comparable to Carbon/Zinc batteries, but can deliver more total energy before having to be replaced.
Lithium – A lithium battery is a disposable power cell that contains lithium metal or compounds. There are also lithium-ion batteries that are rechargeable, and provide a greater power output than traditional Nickel-Cadmium batteries. They can be used in cell phones, cameras and computers.
Solar Batteries – A battery that converts sunlight to electrical power. Solar batteries can power cars, golf carts and other vehicles, and help to heat a home as part of a solar energy system.
Recycled Batteries – Many batteries contain toxic chemicals that can be harmful to the environment if they are thrown away. There are now battery recycling plants that provide a more responsible way to dispose of car batteries, lead batteries and batteries that contain mercury.
Battery Charger – Having to constantly replace dead batteries is a frustrating experience. A battery charger eliminates the need to replace many common household batteries by restoring their power. Ask the retailer which types of batteries can be charged.
