Alkaline Batteries

Alkaline primary batteries (Alkaline Manganese Dioxide) are the most familiar to consumers. They are widely available and disposable. Rated at 1.5 volts per cell, alkaline batteries are available in the common AAA, AA, C, D and 9-volt sizes. Their combination of long (5+ years) shelf life, low cost and reasonable drain rate make them excellent for applications like toys, portable CD and MP3 players, smoke alarm back-up, remote controls and flashlights.

Alkaline batteries have long shelf lives and they do not suffer the 'memory effects' of Nickel-cadmium batteries

Alkaline batteries generate power by a reaction between zinc and manganese dioxide (Zn/MnO2). In an alkaline battery, the anode (positive electrode) is made of zinc powder and the cathode (negative electrode) of manganese dioxide. The most common sizes for alkaline batteries are AA, AAA, C, D, and 9v. Other sizes include 4LR44, N, A23, and A27. Most alkaline batteries have a voltage of 1.5v. Other sizes such as the A23, A27 and 9v batteries are battery assemblies of smaller cells that are 1.5v.

Alkaline Battery

Alkaline batteries are a smart choice for consumers because they last for a long period of time, perform well at high and low temperatures and have a long storage life. Alkaline batteries can be stored at room temperature for two years and retain 90 percent of their original capacities. According to the U.S. EPA, potassium hydroxide, a strong alkali (a base), is contained within the cells of alkaline batteries. The potassium hydroxide can leak out of the battery cell if they are damaged or mishandled, causing severe chemical burns if the substance comes into contact with your skin or eyes.

  • Standard Alkaline – typically used in low to moderate-drain devices like scanners and remote controls
  • Premium Alkaline – typically used in high drain devices such as digital cameras and CD players

Mercury use in batteries has been reduced drastically. Newer alkaline batteries contain about one-tenth the amount of mercury previously contained in the typical alkaline battery. Some alkaline batteries have zero-added mercury, and several mercury-free, heavy-duty, carbon-zinc (or zinc-carbon) batteries are on the market.

Because of mercury reduction, some landfill bans of alkaline batteries and recycling programs taking them have ceased. When disposing of household alkaline batteries, it is best to check with your local recycling or Household Hazardous Waste coordinators concerning the specifics of what is and is not accepted.
