What Type of battery is usually found in the flashlights? There are several types you can find below.
We hope you cherish making the world a cleaner place, right? If that’s you, chances are you like rechargeable batteries. However, there are scenarios where non-rechargeable batteries are a better option.
Non-Rechargeable Flashlight batteries
- Disposable Alkaline: Despite being easy to find, they usually offer very low power and have a shelf life of about 2 years. They’re the standard size batteries that you normally see as AAA, AA, C, and D batteries
- Disposable Lithium: Do not confuse them with Lithium Ion batteries! Compared to alkaline batteries, they have more power, can store more energy and are lighter. They normally have a shelf life of around 10 years and are more expensive than alkaline batteries.
Rechargeable Flashback batteries
These normally come in many different sizes. The most common types are 18500, 18650, and RCR123A. In addition to their great power output, they have the ability to recharge. On the other hand, these batteries are expensive and you need to buy a compatible charger to go along with them lest they get destroyed.
