Alkaline Battery

  Alkaline batteries are a type of primary battery dependent upon the reaction between zinc and manganese dioxide (Zn/MnO2). Another type of alkaline batteries are secondary rechargeable alkaline battery, which allows reuse of specially designed cells. Alkaline batteries have a higher energy density and longer shelf-life compared with zinc-carbon batteries with the same voltage. Alkaline batteries account for 80% of manufactured batteries […]
