Battery Comparison Chart

AA family

With so many battery choices, you'll need to find the right battery type and size for your particular device. Energizer provides a battery comparison chart to help you choose.





There are two basic battery types:

Single-use batteries have a finite life and need to be replaced. These include alkaline batteries like Energizer MAX® and Energizer EcoAdvanced®, and lithium batteries like our Energizer Ultimate Lithium™ are good examples. Other single-use batteries include silver oxide and miniature lithium specialty batteries and zinc air hearing aid batteries.

Rechargeable batteries, of course, can be recharged again and again – some of them up to 1,000 times! Check out the Energizer Recharge® page for more information.
