Battery Boot Camp

by Lolli

What are the differences between battery types?

In simple terms, batteries come in two basic types: single-use (which have one life cycle and must be replaced when drained) and rechargeable (which can be recharged and used repeatedly). But within those two basic types are a ton of different kinds of batteries.

Rayovac Heavy Duty:

  • Best for low-drain household electronics
  • Great for remotes

Rayovac Alkaline:

  • Best for household electronics
  • Most Popular long-lasting power source
  • Very good shelf-life – up to 7 years

Rayovac Lithium:

  • Best for high/drain-tech devices
  • High performance battery for the devices you rely on
  • Great storage life – 10 years
  • 33% lighter than alkaline systems

Rayovac Rechargeables:

  • Best for frequent use/high drain devices
  • Recharges 100′s of times
  • Ready-to-use out of the package
