With so many battery choices, it’s helpful to know what’s best for your particular device. Learn the basic differences between regular batteries and rechargeable here, and don’t forget to check out our Battery Chemistry Chart for a quick glance at which batteries can be recharged.
Two basic battery types.
Single-use batteries have a limited life and need to be replaced. Alkaline batteries like Energizer® MAX®, and lithium batteries like our Advanced and Ultimate are good examples. Other single-use batteries include silver-zinc and zinc air. Rechargeable
batteries, of course, can be recharged again and again – some of them up to 1,500 times! Examples of rechargeable batteries include Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH), Nickel Cadmium (NiCd), Lithium Ion (LiIon) and Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries. Check out the Energizer® Recharge®
page for a great selection.
