Making the right choice in batteries requires expertise. After all, the power source must match power use, usage situation and budget exactly. Elfa has the experience and expertise that we gladly share with our clients.

 

Verschillende soorten batterijen van Elfa

A specific application requires a specific battery

Batterij soorten

Elfa used to be a battery manufacturer and now an importer of an extremely wide range of primary (non-rechargeable) batteries. That means that there is not only a lot of expertise , but also that a solutions is always available to every problem or can be developed. There are therefore many batterij soorten which may differ in properties. A battery that can be used at -20˚C, a battery that can handle a high peak in demand or a simple AA battery at the lowest possible price? A number of battery types will be discussed here. These are the alkaline, lithium, air-alkaline and zinc-air batteries.

 

Alkaline batteries

Alkaline batteries are the most commonly used types of batteries. The alkaline variant provides a lot of energy, even at lower temperatures. These batteries are suitable for single use and have the lowest purchase price and low self-discharge. They are very suitable for devices that use little power for a long time.

 

The best known producer is Duracell for this type of batteries. But in the meantime, besides Duracell, there are many more producers who produce good alkaline batteries. Think of Panasonic and Energizer. Elfa can also deliver Procell batteries for professional bulk consumption. This product line replaces the Duracell Industrial batteries. These are high-performance, simply packaged alkaline batteries for large consumption.

 

Procell batteries

Procell batteries van Duracell zijn speciaal gemaakt voor professioneel gebruik.

 

In brief:

  • Suited for devices that normally require low current such as remote controls or radios.

 

Upsides in brief:

  • Good shelf life
  • Work well at low temperatures
  • Considerably cheaper than lithium batteries

 

Downsides in brief:

  • Do not last long in applications with high constant current during use. Different types of batteries are more suitable here,

 

Lithium metal batteries

Lithium metal batteries are also for single use. A distinctive thing is the fact that they last up to 7x longer than the alkaline variant. Where a much higher peak power is required, lithium is the solution. Think, for example, of digital cameras. Elfa supplies, among other things, lithium batteries from Tadiran; verreweg de beste kwaliteit lithium-batterijen ter wereld. Dankzij de zeer hoge kwaliteitsnorm levert Tadiran haar lithiumbatterijen aan o.a. de lucht- en ruimtevaartindustrie.

 

Maar Elfa ziet dat lithium tegenwoordig steeds vaker wordt gebruikt in consumentenapparatuur zoals bij draadloze alarmsystemen en op plaatsen waar de temperatuur een issue is. Lithium werkt immers van – 20 tot +40 graden Celsius. Naast Tadiran is Energizer een voorbeeld van een merk dat hoogwaardige lithium batterijen levert. Elfa kan ook Energizer lithium-batteries and can choose from various chemistries such as Lithium Manganese Diocide (Li-MnO2) and Lithium Thionyl Chloride (Li-SOCI2).

 

Energizer lithium battery

The Energizer lithium battery is powerful and performs under extreme conditions. 

 

In brief:

  • Used in: water, gas and electricity meters, alarm sensors, track & trace gps modules, among others
  • Predominantly industrial use

 

Upsides in brief:

  • Last up to 7 times longer than alkaline batteries
  • Very low self-discharge (<1% per year @ 20°C)
  • Excellent temperature tolerance (-60 +150°C)
  • Retains capacity at temperatures below zero

 

Downsides in brief:

  • Dangerous in case of misuse, abusive charging, complete discharge
  • Significantly more expensive than other types of batteries, such as the alkaline variants.

 

Specialist batteries: Air alkaline and ZincAir batteries

De wereld vraagt steeds meer accu- en batterijoplossingen en fabrikanten komen dan ook met nieuwe chemische samenstellingen. Elfa volgt hier de laatste ontwikkelingen. Daarom leveren wij de batterijen van de hightech-batterijenfabrikant Saft, die specialistische batterijen voor o.a. luchtvaart, spoorwegen, ruimtevaart, defensie en noodstroomsystemen produceert. De LS batterijsoort kenmerkt zich met lange termijn toepassingen, namelijk van 3 tot 15 jaar. Hieronder zie je een voorbeeld van deze specifieke soort batterij.

New batteries like these ones from Saft are often Lithium-Ion batteries. Elfa also sees other technologies under development, such as Sodium ion, Lithium sulfur and Solid-state batteries. These are interesting developments and Elfa keeps a close eye on all these developments.

A particular type that deserves some extra attention are the Air-alkaline batteries from Cegasa. Ze bieden een extreem hoge energiedichtheid en een hoge uitgangsspanning en stabiliteit tijdens de gehele ontlading. Ze staan dan ook bekend om de hoge kwaliteit, duurzaamheid en lange levensduur. Misschien nóg interessanter: de Cegasa Zinc Air; een zeer kleine, lichte en compacte accu die zeer lang meegaat.

In primary batteries, Elfa supplies the following types of chemistry:

  • Alkaline
  • Lithium
  • Lithium/Iron Disulfide
  • Lithium Manganese Dioxide
  • Lithium Poly-Carbon Monofluoride
  • Lithium Thionylchloride
  • SilverOxide
  • ZincAir

 

In primary batteries, Elfa supplies the following formats:

  • A
  • AA
  • AAA
  • AAAA
  • C
  • Coin
  • D
  • E
  • N

 

In addition to the standard sizes of primary batteries, Elfa also offers all kinds of other batteries with their own IEC codes or ANSI codes. Sometimes standard formats do not offer a good solution. Elfa can therefore also provides custom battery packs maken. Neem overigens een kijkje in ons assortiment voor het gehele aanbod accu’s en batterijen.

Recycling

Used batteries are best taken back. The Stibat ("Stichting Batterijen") coordinates the collection of spent batteries in the Netherlands. Handing in empty batteries is good for the environment and handing it in is therefore the first step in successful recycling. Full collection bins and boxes are collected by Stibat. The exhausted batteries are then sorted and offered for recycling to selected recyclers in Europe.
