Unlike the carbon zinc battery, the rechargeable alkaline battery has higher energy density and has better performance at a wide temperature range. These batteries are environmentally friendly and don't pollute the environment during disposal. The battery's shelf life is around two years at room temperature.
Alkaline batteries are also available in various shapes and sizes. They include AA, AAA, C, D, 9 V, and even micro alkaline button cells for low drain applications. These batteries are used in many gadgets and appliances.
Alkaline batteries are based on potassium hydroxide and can be charged hundreds of times. The recharged battery retains around 90% of its original capacity. Alkaline batteries are considered to be one of the most environmentally friendly forms of energy storage. Its long shelf life and low charge-discharge cycles ensure that it can be used for many years without affecting its capacity. It is also considered to have a longer shelf life than carbon zinc batteries. It has also been found to be efficient in low-drain applications.
Alkaline batteries are ideal for all types of low and medium-drain applications. They offer better performance in cold conditions than carbon zinc batteries. Their high energy density and long shelf life allow them to be used on devices even when the temperature is low. They are also efficient in high-drain applications.
The charging rates for rechargeable alkaline batteries can be increased or decreased by using a maker's charger. It is also possible to use a voltage-limiting charger. This charger will remove the battery from the charging circuit when the desired voltage is reached.
