D batteries are dry cells that come in cylindrical dimensions and contain 1.5 voltage. Large electrical devices that require large amounts of power such as flashlights, lanterns, radio receivers, boomboxes, and toys use D-size batteries. They are larger and heavier than AA, AAA, or C battery cells. Staples carries a wide selection of D-size batteries in various packages. Browse the wide selection of batteries in the facilities maintenance section.

Rechargeable and non-rechargeable
D batteries come in two categories: single-use and rechargeable batteries. The most common type of rechargeable D batteries are NiMH cells. They have a lifespan of about 1,000 charges and are ideal for use in locations with power sources. Some NiMH variants come pre-charged, allowing use straight from the package. Different designs offer longer shelf lives, low discharge, and carry higher capacities up to 12000mAh. NiMH D batteries come with a variety of advantages like retaining about 85 percent of their charge for up to 12 months. They do not contain toxic materials and are eco-friendly. They're most effective with high-drain devices because they deliver more current. Single-use or disposable D batteries are ideal for use in locations that do not have power sources and with low-drain devices.

Consider the chemical composition
D-size batteries use variants of three chemicals: zinc-carbon, alkaline, and lithium. All three chemicals deliver the same 1.5 voltage but differ in traits such as discharge rates and capacities. For example, zinc-carbon batteries have a capacity of 8000mAh; however, they are less powerful. Alkaline batteries are more powerful and have a capacity of 12000mAh to 180000mAh, ideal for high-drain devices. Lithium batteries come with many advantages, which include that they last longer, they have a higher energy density, they have lower chances of leakage as compared to their counterparts, and they perform best in frigid environments. Additionally, they're much lighter than alkaline batteries and offer the best rechargeable D-size batteries.

Consider seal technology
Battery leaks are a common worry, especially for locations with extreme weather conditions. However, most D-size batteries designs utilize power seal technology that prevents any form of leakage. Manufacturers perform tests on each batch to ensure there are no leaks.

Do they come in packages?
D batteries come in a variety of packages to suit various users. Retail packages carry sets of 2, 4, 6, or 8 cells, often in even numbers. However, there are bulk packages available that carry up to 72 cells for mass use. 

Can you mix different types of D batteries?
There are minor differences in the various types of D-size batteries. For example, rechargeable batteries emit a constant voltage during discharge followed by a sharp drop, whereas alkaline D batteries maintain a constant voltage drop during the discharge cycle. The slight difference in profiles, if used together, could damage an electronic device. 

When is it ideal to recharge?
Charge the batteries while there is still some charge left. This helps prevent irreversible damage to the cells. Rechargeable D-size batteries employ NiMH configuration in their design. This means there is no "memory effect."
