ALKALINE Alkaline Battery dependent upon the reaction between zinc and manganese dioxide. 1 CURRENT
CARBON_MONOFLUORIDE_LITHIUM Carbon monofluoride lithium The lithium–carbon monofluoride system has been among the more successful early commercial lithium miniature batteries. It has been used extensively in cameras and smaller devices, providing about 3.2 volts per cell, high power density, and long shelf life. 10 December 2020 1 CURRENT
CARBON_ZINC Carbon Zinc A battery is packaged in a zinc can that serves as both a container and negative terminal. 1 ARCHIVED
LEAD_ACID Lead acid Batteries which use sponge lead and lead peroxide for the conversion of the chemical energy into electrical power, are called lead acid batteries. They are most commonly used in power stations and substations because they have higher cell voltage and lower cost. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
LEAD_CALCIUM Lead calcium Calcium batteries are a form of lead acid battery which are usually sealed and maintenance free. Calcium replaces antimony in the plates of the battery to give it improved resistance to corrosion, excessive gassing, less water usage and lower self discharge. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
LITHIUM_AIR Lithium air Lithium air batteries are described as the "ultimate" batteries because they provide a high theoretical energy density of up to ten times the energy offered by regular lithium ion batteries. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
LITHIUM_COBALT Lithium cobalt Lithium ion batteries utilizing cobalt are primary used in laptop computers. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
LITHIUM_ION Lithium ion A lithium-ion battery or Li-ion battery (abbreviated as LIB) is a type of rechargeable battery. Lithium-ion batteries are commonly used for portable electronics and electric vehicles and are growing in popularity for military and aerospace applications. 10 December 2020 1 CURRENT
LITHIUM_ION_POLYMER Lithium Ion Polymer A type of battery in which lithium ions move from the anode to the cathode during discharge, and from the cathode to the anode when charged. 1 CURRENT
LITHIUM_MANGANESE_OXIDE Lithium manganese oxide Lithium batteries are primary batteries that have metallic lithium as an anode. These types of batteries are also referred to as lithium manganese batteries. They stand apart from other batteries in their high charge density (long life) and high cost per unit. Depending on the design and chemical compounds used, lithium cells can produce voltages from 1.5 V (comparable to a zinc–carbon or alkaline battery) to about 3.7 V. 10 December 2020 1 CURRENT
LITHIUM_NICKEL Lithium nickel Lithium ion batteries utilizing nickel and cobalt are primary used in automotive and power tool products. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
LITHIUM_PHOSPHATE Lithium phosphate Lithium ion batteries utilizing phosphate are primary use in automotive and power tool products. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
LITHIUM_THIONYL_CHLORIDE Lithium thionyl chloride Lithium metal batteries utilizing thionyl chloride are primary used in portable electronics and memory backup.  04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
LITHIUM_TITANATE Lithium titanate Lithium ion batteries utilizing titanate are primary used in automotive products. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
MERCURY_OXIDE Mercury oxide Mercury batteries (also called mercuric oxide battery, mercury cell, button cell, or Ruben-Mallory) are non-rechargeable electrochemical batteries, primary cells with primary uses in portable devices. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
METAL_LITHIUM Metal Lithium A lithium battery that used metallic lithium as anode. 1 CURRENT
NICKEL_CADMIUM Nickel Cadmium A type of rechargeable battery using nickel oxide hydroxide and metallic cadmium as electrodes. 1 CURRENT
NICKEL_METAL_HYDRIDE Nickel Metal Hydride A type of secondary electrochemical cell similar to nickel hydrogen cell. 1 CURRENT
NICKEL_OXIDE Nickel oxide Nickel oxide, made from iron, batteries are a rechargeable battery having nickel(III) oxide hydroxide positive and iron negative plates, with an electrolyte of potassium hydroxide. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
NICKEL_OXYHYDROXIDE Nickel oxyhydroxide Nickel oxyhydroxide batteries are a type of primary cell. It is not rechargeable and must be disposed after a single use. They can be used in high-drain applications such as digital cameras. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
NICKEL_ZINC Nickel zinc Nickel zinc batteries are a type of rechargeable batteries similar to nickel metal hydride batteries. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
OTHER Other A battery technology not on otherwise on this list. 1 CURRENT
SILVER_CALCIUM Silver calcium Silver calcium alloy batteries are a type of lead-acid batteries with grids made from lead calcium silver alloy, instead of the traditional lead antimony alloy or newer lead calcium alloy. They stand out for its resistance to corrosion and the destructive effects of high temperatures. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
SILVER_OXIDE Silver Oxide A type of silver–zinc battery. 1 ARCHIVED
SILVER_ZINC_OXIDE Silver zinc oxide Silver zinc oxide batteries share most of the characteristics of silver oxide batteries, and in addition, are able to deliver one of the highest specific energies of all presently known electro-chemical power sources. This type of battery has silver oxide as the positive electrode (cathode), zinc as the negative electrode (anode), plus an alkaline electrolyte, usually sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide metallic silver. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
ZINC_AIR Zinc air Zinc air batteries (non-rechargeable) are metal air batteries powered by oxidizing zinc with oxygen from the air. They have high energy densities and are relatively inexpensive to produce. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
ZINC_CHLORIDE Zinc chloride Zinc chloride batteries are an improved version of zinc carbon batteries. Zinc chloride batteries are generally labelled as a heavy duty battery. These batteries contain only zinc chloride paste as electrolyte and provide more current, more voltage and more life than general purpose zinc carbon batteries. 04 May 2021 1 CURRENT
