Alkaline batteries are the most common and best-known type of AA battery. The main advantage of a standard, non-rechargeable AA alkaline battery is that it's immediately available, very cost-effective in the short-term and suitable for a range of low drain devices. They offer the user a longer operation time compared to a standard battery along with a shelf-life of up to 6 years.
Long-life lithium AA batteries are another popular battery, providing up to 9 years of use. Lithium AA batteries are ideal for more robust shorter-term use in high-drain equipment such as digital cameras, or even better in low-drain devices that need to be powered for long periods of time like smoke alarms. AA lithium cells can loas longer than most other AA types in devices and don't leak over time, unlike many chearper varieties.
Another type is the AA rechargeable battery (NiMH) . Rechargeable batteries offer a higher performance and bigger capacity. Manufacturers deliver pre-charged batteries that can be used immediately.
