Lithium batteries give you a high-power, long-lasting option for a wide selection of devices, from life-saving pacemakers to children’s toys.
Lithium is a metal that when used as a power source, provides high charge density and superior reliability. In most cases, these batteries can be used to replace regular alkaline cells to power electronic devices, like radio controlled toys, mp3 players, and digital cameras. This type of battery is so durable, it’s not uncommon for it to sometimes outlast the device it’s used in! The technology involved in creating a lithium battery enables it to perform very well at extreme low temperatures, and also at warmer temperatures. This kind of adaptability is what makes it so sought after, even though it also costs more than regular alkaline or zinc-carbon batteries. However, because they perform so well, and last so much longer, the cost is more than justified. Available in various sizes, you can find an AA battery for your kitchen clock, or a button cell battery used in devices, like pacemakers – such is the versatility of this type of battery.
