AAA Rechargeable Batteries

AAA Batteries (or Triple A Batteries) are a standard size of battery. A battery features single or multiple cells in one package and is used as a power source. Rechargeable AAA batteries, or storage batteries, can be charged multiple times. They are reusable, so you do not need to buy new batteries when they run out. Rechargeable batteries are often more convenient than traditional batteries, but more expensive in the short-term.

What are the main benefits of AAA rechargeable batteries?

Rechargeable AAA batteries can recharge easily in an appropriate charger after they have become drained. Some can be used hundreds of times before dropping in capacity, saving money and effort in the long-term in comparison to buying new disposable batteries. Many rechargeable options also come pre-charged and ready to use out of the pack.

They do not just present convenience for the user, but also an opportunity to make a more environmentally friendly choice in power application.

Many offer low self-discharge, such as NiMH AAA rechargeable batteries, which means they will retain the majority of their charge even when left unused for an extended period of time. They also use less energy to recharge than is required to manufacture disposable batteries, while reducing the risk of leaking harmful chemicals when discarded.

What are the different types of rechargeable batteries?

These batteries are available in different brands, capacities and terminal types. Common brands include Ansmann, Eneloop or Energizer AAA rechargeable batteries. High capacity AAA rechargeable batteries – operating at up to 1100mAh – provide power for longer per charge.

There are also a variety of operating temperature ranges available, from a lower limit of -20°C to an upper limit of +65 °C.

How to recharge AAA batteries
