Batteries

Batteries convert chemical, solar, or thermal energy into DC electrical energy. Featured are a host of chemical technologies using properties of lithium, silver, zinc, etc. Included are fuel cells and auxiliary products e.g. battery chargers, packs, etc.
Alkaline Batteries are a type of power cell dependent upon the reaction between zinc and manganese oxide (Zn/MnO2).
Battery Chargers (175 Companies)
Battery chargers are generally AC to DC devices that charge specific types of rechargeable batteries. Some units feature microprocessor control, safety backup with timers, controls for different charge rates, multiple battery type charging, etc.
Battery Clips (29 Companies)
Battery Clip is a metal clip with a terminal to which a connecting wire can be attached, and with spring jaws that can be quickly snapped onto a battery terminal or other point to which a temporary connection is desired.
They contain compartments to house dry cell batteries and permit the batteries to move in response to mechanical shock forces without breaking the desired electrical contact.
Battery packs are combinations of fundamental battery types, usually rechargeable, that are internally combined in a package to produce a higher voltage and/or amperage output. Fuel cell stacks are multiple cells attached in series.
A button cell or coin cell is a small form-factor battery designed for use in wrist watches, pocket calculators, hearing aids, and similar compact portable electronic products. They are compact and have long life.
Fuel Cells (15 Companies)
A fuel cell is an electrochemical conversion device. It produces electricity from fuel and an oxidant which react in the presence of an electrolyte. The reactants flow into the cell, and products flow out, while the electrolyte remains within it.
Lead-Acid Batteries (61 Companies)
Lead-acid batteries are one of the oldest types of batteries. Features high values of surge current and large power-to-weight ratio. Commonly used as rechargeable batteries in automobiles and machinery.
Lithium Batteries (62 Companies)
Disposable Lithium Batteries have lithium metal or lithium compounds as an anode. Lithium cells can produce voltages from 1.5 V to about 3.0 V. These batteries are widely used in many portable consumer electronic devices.
Lithium, Ion Batteries (51 Companies)
Lithium ion batteries are one of the fastest growing technologies in the industry and used extensively in cellular telephones and laptop computers. Features high energy and low weight (35% less than NiMH batteries).
These batteries offer high energy, good power densities, and discharge performance. They work well in extreme temperatures and can be either button or cylindrically shaped. They have a stable discharge rate, low internal resistance, and impedance.
Lithium Sulfur Dioxide Batteries offer high density, long and durable storage life, with an extensive temperature operating range. These batteries are offered in voltages ranging from 3.0 to 3.6 volts and are widely used in military devices.
These batteries contain magnesium anodes and silver chlorine cathodes. All components are solid and traditionally used in underwater devices, with seawater acting as the electrolyte. These batteries have excellent energy density and shelf life.
Mercury Types Batteries (7 Companies)
A mercury battery is a non-rechargeable electrochemical primary cell. These batteries are made in button types for watches and calculators, and in larger forms for other applications.
Uses a nickel and cadmium plate and potassium hydroxide as the electrolyte. NiCd batteries provide more charge per pound than lead-acid batteries, but less than the NiMH type.
Nickel metal hydride batteries offers up to 40% more energy capacity than traditional NiCd batteries, are less prone to the memory effect of NiCds, and without Cadmium are more environmentally friendly.
Rechargeable Batteries (75 Companies)
A rechargeable battery, also known as a storage battery, is a group of two or more secondary cells. These batteries can be restored to full charge by the application of electrical energy. Rechargeable electrochemical cells are a type of accumulator.
Silver Types Batteries (24 Companies)
Silver-oxide batteries can be either primary cell batteries or secondary batteries with long shelf lives and high energy/weight ratios. They have very flat discharge curves and open circuit potential. Available as button cells or large custom batteries.
Standard Cell Batteries (26 Companies)
Standard Cell Batteries are normally dry cell batteries with low-moisture, paste electrolytes. The standard cell is the most common battery.
These batteries use zinc and manganese oxide cathode and anode layers. They can be laminated onto any substrate. A one inch square emits 1.5 volts of energy. They can be integrated with microchips to transmit RFID or add light and sound to packaging.
Zinc Types Batteries (23 Companies)
Zinc-Carbon Batteries are primary cells packaged in zinc cans with a cathode made up of carbon powder or manganese dioxide. These batteries are used in flashlights or in radios whereas Zinc-Air Batteries are use in hearing aids and electric vehicles.
