Below these article you will see through the various types of batteries and can make you understand more about batteries in our world and also allow you to know a battery to suit each individual job at a reasonable price.

First of all, we can also call batteries in another word is battery cell which is a battery power is significant. The cells have been used for each cell of the four dimensions that we usually see. Although there are many different cells which each manufacturer will produce cell different type of cell from two to three dimension or more which these cell separated into various sizes in AAA Size, AA Size and D respectively.

Carbon Zinc Cells – Carbon Zinc Cells is conventional batteries which can used as a carbon anode which cover with ammonium chloride. For the outer will coating with zinc which is negative. When the chemical reaction occurs will provide electrons and transforming chemical energy directly into electrical energy. However, Carbon Zinc Batteries in the first generation unable to recharge.

Disposable Alkaline Cells – Disposable Alkaline Cells is an Alkaline Batteries that have a disposable which very popular in 1958 because it can provide more power than traditional batteries but in a recent years we are concern more about environmental problem and result from the batteries Disposable Alkaline because these types of batteries contain toxic waste problem worldwide. Therefore, many manufacturer have been trying to develop more alkaline battery that no harmful to the environment. Nowadays the amount of active charcoal alkaline are also caused problem with toxic waste to the world for example in America that have batteries alkaline amount to 2 billion pieces per year which is the major disadvantage of charcoal alkaline disposable.

Lithium Battery are not allow to put in a suitcase and can not load to air plane. Nowadays the manufacturer has developed Lithium Battery types into a Lithium O’Neill Chloride which can work with low power electrical devices such as Lamps, LED (Light Emitting Diode). Lithium Battery are also produce in AA Type Batteries and have price around 9 up to 11 dollar.
