Choose different 12-volt batteries to power portable low-drain devices and heavy-duty high-drain gadgets. Different types of batteries deliver 12 volts and each of them comes in a unique size. They range from cylindrical cells that are shorter and wider than AAA cells to regular automotive sealed lead acid batteries. Staples® offers a selection of 12-volt power cells designed for different applications.

Power RF Remotes With Small 12-Volt Batteries
The most common types of 12-volt power cells used for portable electronic devices are A23 batteries. An A23 is a dry cell battery that is identical to an N battery and two-thirds the length of an AAA cell. Its primary function is powering radio frequency transmitters and receivers. Such RF gadgets include car keyless entry remotes and garage door openers. Some manufacturers also install 12-volt A23 cells in home security systems, medical equipment, and Bluetooth® headsets. An A23 battery is an alkaline cell. Inside it, there are eight 1.5-volt button cells stacked in series to deliver a total of 12 volts.

Pick Lantern 12-Volt Batteries for Heavy Loads
Another type of 12-volt dry cell is the 8R25 lantern battery. This is a lot bigger than the A23. It is a rectangular unit with rounded edges and screw terminals located at the top. Like the A23, it houses multiple cells that deliver a combined voltage of 12-volts. It can be an alkaline or zinc-carbon battery. Zinc-carbon 12-volt lantern batteries have capacities between 7500 and 8000mAh while alkaline varieties can store around 13000mAh of electric charge. These 12V batteries are ideal for industrial applications and can power car accessories not connected to the lead acid batteries in vehicles.

Use Lead Acid 12-Volt Batteries for High Discharge Applications
The third type of 12-volt power cell is the sealed lead acid battery. It is the most common rechargeable 12-volt battery available. This battery contains six 2.1-volt galvanic cells. Besides automotive applications, lead acid batteries can also provide backup power for residential and business venues. They are also ideal for providing electricity at remote off-grid sites as well as powering observational devices like wildlife cameras meant to run continuously for days. Sealed lead acid units have higher capacities than lantern cells. Most can store 30 to 40Ah of electric charge. This makes them suitable for running devices with high discharge capacities.

What Is the Difference Between Lead Acid and Deep Cycle 12-Volt Batteries?
A deep cycle battery also uses lead acid cells. It is a variant that employs absorbent glass mats (AGM) to improve electrolyte performance. AGM 12V batteries tolerate deep discharges better than regular flooded lead acid batteries. They may also fully recover when completely drained.

Are A23 12-Volt Batteries Suitable Replacements for N Cells?
No. While they look alike, N batteries are slightly taller and wider. In addition, each N cell has a nominal voltage of 1.25 to 1.5-volts while an A23 is a 12-volt battery. Lastly, N batteries have 10 to 20 times the capacity of A23 cells.

Why Do A23 12-Volt Batteries Have Low Charge Capacities?
This battery type has a typical capacity between 30 and 55mAh. They are perfect for running low-drain devices that require higher voltages than the 1.5 volts supplied by most primary cells. RF remotes that use A23 batteries only draw power when users press the buttons. Since these events are brief and infrequent, the 12-volt cells only have to deliver short pulses of electric current.
