AA Batteries

Keep your electronics running with a supply of fresh AA batteries. Double-A, single-cell dry batteries have a standard size regardless of the types of electrolytes used. The AA cell is the most popular power source for portable electronic devices like remote controls, RC toys, flashlights, and digital cameras. Staples® carries a wide selection of AA dry cells from multiple reputable battery brands.

Choose Between Disposable and Rechargeable AA Batteries
Disposable batteries are single-use power sources. Also known as primary cells, these are non-rechargeable general purpose batteries. These are best for devices that drain battery power slowly. You can install single-use AA cells in clocks, remotes, and motion sensor LED night lights. Available options for such devices include regular zinc-carbon and heavy-duty zinc-chloride batteries. For high-drain devices like digital cameras, get AA lithium batteries. Single-use alkaline cells are also good for such applications. These low-discharge cells have a long shelf life and high capacity.

To avoid the cost of frequent battery replacements, choose rechargeable batteries for your high-drain electronics. You can use rechargeable units in any device that runs on primary cells. If you opt for rechargeable AA batteries, make sure to pick ones with more than 500 recharge cycles. These will retain at least 60 percent of their original capacity throughout their useful lifespans.

Consider Cell Chemistry When Shopping for AA Batteries
While the majority of AA cells are alkaline batteries, there are other types available in this size. Some of these are zinc-carbon, zinc-chloride, nickel-cadmium (NiCd), nickel-metal hydride (NiMH), lithium, and lithium ion. Zinc-carbon, zinc-chloride, and lithium batteries are non-rechargeable. Zinc-carbon AA cells have capacities between 400 and 900mAh. Zinc-chloride can store 1000 to 1500mAh of energy while lithium AAs hold 2100 to 3000mAh. Alkaline cells come in both rechargeable and non-rechargeable forms. A non-rechargeable alkaline AA has a storage capacity of 2400mAh while the rechargeable version has a maximum capacity of 2000mAh.

Alkaline cells are better as single-use batteries. A rechargeable alkaline battery is prone to leakage and loses capacity quickly. NiCd, nickel-zinc, and lithium ion cells are excellent as rechargeable batteries but not commonly found in AA size. NiMH is the most popular type of rechargeable AA batteries. They come in capacities ranging from 600 to 2850mAh and can last through up to 1000 recharges.

What Are LSD NiMH AA Batteries?
LSD NiMH cells are low self-discharge nickel-metal hydride batteries. These have a longer shelf life than regular NiMH units. This means that they retain a stored charge for longer even when left unused. Some brands of LSD NiMH batteries can still have 75 percent of their original capacities after one year. These are best for infrequently used but essential devices like emergency flashlights.

What Types of AA Batteries Should You Choose for Smoke Detectors?
A smoke detector needs a battery with a very slow discharge rate, high capacity, and long shelf life. The cell types that meet these criteria are alkaline and lithium. AA lithium batteries discharge slower and work over a wider range of temperatures.

Do AA Batteries Experience Memory Effect?
No. Memory effect reduces the capacity of some rechargeable batteries. To avoid this, you must fully discharge affected cells before attempting to recharge them. Modern rechargeable alkaline, NiMH, NiCd, and lithium ion batteries do not have this limitation.
