Information Article about Alkaline Batteries

This page is dedicated to basic information about Alkaline Batteries. Some you might know, some you might find valuable to learn.

Alkaline batteries are used by many, many consumers the world over. They are non-rechargeable. Other commonly used terms for non-rechargeable are: single use and disposable. They’ve been around a good long time! Alkaline batteries are commonly used in today’s consumer electronics. Items like:  digital cameras, electronic games/toys, mp3 players, and GPS products just to name a few.

Although Alkaline chemistry is not a rechargeable technology, there is a version of 1.5 volt Alkaline cells that are rechargeable however it’s not a product that is available for consumer purchase so you won’t find them on the shelf at your local retailer. We can’t emphasize enough that the Alkaline batteries you see in stores (and online, from reputable battery sellers), are NOT rechargeable and absolutely NEVER EVER try to charge them. To do so, poses a very real fire hazard risk!

Alkaline batteries are made by leading battery manufacturers such as Duracell, Panasonic, and Energizer as well as others of course, and are available at most corner stores on blister cards, and of course, in bulk (much cheaper!) online. Cost for Alkaline batteries fluctuate from one seller to another but of course, buying them in bulk is always your best bet if you don’t need them in retail displays. You’d only need them carded like that if you yourself were a reseller of them. If you’re not a merchant, look for the best deals you can find online and stock up with a trustworthy battery supplier!

Something that’s important to note on the subject of battery suppliers is, it’s not only a matter about price. Great customer service is also a factor to measure before spending hard earned dollars on items you use everyday, such as batteries! A battery seller who has their own inventory, for example, and is not an affiliate for another distributer, is what you want. Also, you need someone who takes your calls, or at least returns your voice mails immediately and who answers emails promptly, is the ideal choice.

On the subject of shelf life: (Think about it – what good are dead batteries?), you must be stocked with batteries that have great date codes. Since these are not rechargeable, freshness is of utmost importance.

Alkaline batteries in sizes:AA, AAA,C, D and 9 Volt, typically have a shelf-life of roughly 7 years or so, so when you do find a good supplier for them, stock up for future use! It’s money saver to have enough stock for a while. In this way, you don’t have to pay higher prices because you ran out and had to source them at the last minute!

While on the subject of buying batteries at the last minute, consider your travel habits. If you need to replenish your alkaline battery supply while on the go away from home, you will be sure to pay higher prices for them at places like gas stations, airports, drugstores and other convenience stores.  That’s justification right there for making sure you’re never left in the lurch because these types of places inflate their prices, knowing how much you need them. Supply and demand folks! Travellers must pay for the convenience of being able to find batteries at these “convenience locations” You’re not just paying for the batteries, don’t be fooled! You’re paying for the convenience to you to be able to get them there.

Always plan ahead and stock pile Alkaline batteries if you use them often and in many products!

Wherever you buy them, check to be sure that their date codes (expiration dates) are a good 5 years down the road.

If you happen to want to switch over to rechargeable batteries one day, consider  NiMh rechargeable batteries as the ideal replacement for them. NiMH stands for Nickel Metal Hydride. This type of chemistry is rechargeable.
