These include alkaline batteries like Energizer MAX® and lithium batteries like our Energizer Ultimate Lithium™ are good examples. Rechargeable batteries, of course, can be recharged again and again – some of them up to 1,000 times! Check out the Energizer Recharge® page for more information.
Correspondingly, are lithium rechargeable batteries?
There are also some lithium-ion rechargeable batteries made for high-performance flashlights and cameras, in these sizes: 18650 and CR123. A single 18650 battery can replace two CR123A batteries, although at a lower voltage (but much higher amperage). There is currently no standard size for these lithium-ion cells.
How long do lithium ion rechargeable batteries last?
If the voltage of a lithium-ion cell drops below a certain level, it's ruined. Lithium-ion batteries age. They only last two to three years, even if they are sitting on a shelf unused. So do not "avoid using" the battery with the thought that the battery pack will last five years.
