Alkaline batteries

Alkaline batteries are real multitaskers among batteries. They provide long-lasting energy, which is useful for devices that are used frequently, such as flashlights. Therefore, they are also widely used for professional applications. We would be happy to tell you more about the details of this commonly used battery chemistry.


What you need to know about alkaline batteries

Alkaline batteries are the workhorses among batteries, known for their durability and reliability. They are made from a combination of zinc and manganese dioxide, which provides a long-lasting energy supply. Ideal for devices that need a constant flow of energy, such as smoke detectors and medical equipment.


Alkaline batteries have a longer lifespan compared to other non-rechargeable batteries, such as zinc-carbon variants. They also perform better in devices that have higher energy consumption.

Discover the advantages

Despite the large variety of different types of batteries, alkaline batteries hold a strong position in the market. This is due to various advantages.

  • Long lifespan: They last longer than many other types, making them cost-effective.
  • Reliability: They provide consistent energy, which is essential for professional applications.
  • Safety: Alkaline batteries have a low risk of leakage, making them a safe choice in critical environments.
  • Environmentally friendly: They do not contain harmful metals such as lead or cadmium.


Mapping out the limitations

Nothing is perfect, and that applies to alkaline batteries as well. Despite the advantages, there are also disadvantages that need to be considered.

  • Non-rechargeable: Once depleted, they need to be replaced.
  • Less effective at low temperatures: In very cold environments, performance can decrease.
  • Leakage risk: Old or overused alkaline batteries can leak, which can be damaging to devices.

A comparison of battery technologies

Another commonly used non-rechargeable battery chemistry is lithium. When choosing between alkaline and lithium batteries, it’s important to know the differences.


Alkaline batteries are more cost-effective and have a longer shelf life when stored. Lithium batteries, on the other hand, offer higher energy density and perform better at low temperatures. Both types are non-rechargeable, yet they are reliable and versatile in use.
