Battery Chemistry

What sets Bulbtronics apart from other battery distributors is our large selection of battery chemistries. Our battery chemistries include Alkaline Batteries, Carbon Zinc Batteries, Lithium Batteries, Li-ion Batteries, Manganese Dioxide Batteries, Nickel Cadmium (NiCd/Nicad) Batteries, Nickel Metal Hydride (NIMH) Batteries, Sealed Lead Acid Batteries, Silver Oxide Batteries and Zinc Air Batteries.

Alkaline Batteries

Alkaline batteries are popular, multi-use premium batteries with high rate performance and good shelf life. Alkaline batteries are used for general purpose applications including laptop computers, lighting, photographic equipment, toys, communication equipment, radio and television applications, high drain applications, tape recorders and instruments.

Carbon Zinc Batteries

Carbon Zinc batteries are most commonly used in flashlights and other products that are used intermittently. Carbon zincs have been almost entirely replaced by alkaline batteries so make sure to check out our extensive line of Alkalines!   

Lithium Batteries

 Lithium batteries have high energy density, excellent rate capability, long shelf life and a relatively flat discharge characteristic. Lithium batteries are general purpose batteries used in photographic and electronic applications requiring small, high-power batteries including security transmitters, smoke alarms, computer peripherals, communications equipment, cameras, personal organizers, memory backup and lighting.

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Batteries

Lithium ion batteries are among the fastest growing battery systems used where high-energy density and light weight is of prime importance and are often used in applications such as notebook computers and cellular phones.

Manganese Dioxide Batteries

High energy, power density, good storage life and discharge performance are characteristics of manganese dioxide batteries. Manganese dioxide batteries come in a variety of shapes, most commonly button cells and cylindrical. Manganese dioxide batteries are used most often for high discharge devices like digital cameras, portable power tools, CD players, etc.

Nickel Cadmium (NiCd/Nicad) Batteries

The Nicad/NiCd battery is used where long life, high discharge rate and economical price are important. Nickel cadmium batteries can operate in a wide variety of temperatures. Primary applications include two-way radios, biomedical equipment, professional video cameras and power tools.

Nickel Metal Hydride (NIMH) Batteries

Nickel Metal Hydride batteries are rechargeable batteries with fast charge capability, high energy density and flat discharge characteristics. NIMH batteries are most often used in portable computers, cellular phones, camcorders, and other portable consumer electronic devices.

Sealed Lead Acid Batteries

The sealed lead acid battery is often used in larger power applications where weight is of little concern. Applications using a sealed lead acid battery include hospital equipment, wheelchairs, emergency lighting and UPS systems.

Silver Oxide Batteries

Silver oxide batteries are have a good shelf life and flat discharge characteristics. Silver oxides are used in applications requiring small, high-capacity batteries. These include hearing aids, watches, photographic equipment and special electronics.

Zinc Air Batteries

Zinc air batteries have the highest energy density on continuous discharge and an excellent shelf life when not activated. Zinc air batteries are most often used in hearing aids, medical monitoring instruments, pagers, and other frequent-use applications.
