Are Rechargeable Batteries Better Than Regular Batteries?

You have a wide range of choices available to you when it comes to battery power, including lead-acid, Li-Ion, NiMH, and more. The needs of the installation will guide your selection, but you may be wondering about rechargeable batteries vs single-use batteries. Here are some of the factors to consider as you plan your project.

Rechargeable Batteries vs Disposable Batteries

In most cases, users have the choice of selecting rechargeable or single-use batteries. Depending on their purpose and where they are used, one type of battery may have advantages over the other. Rechargeable batteries can be more cost-effective in the long run, even though they may cost more to buy. Unlike disposables, they may have a lower voltage but can carry a higher current. Rechargeable batteries can also last up to 7 years, although 2-3 years is more common–much of the lifespan depends on how frequently it’s recharged. In high-demand settings, a rechargeable battery may last longer than its disposable counterpart.

Choosing a Battery Pack

Both rechargeable batteries and single-use batteries can be used in the battery packs found in industrial or commercial installations. Choose from alkaline batteries, lead-acid, NiCd, NiMH, and a variety of lithium chemistries. Work with a custom wholesale batteries supplier to align your battery pack assembly and configuration to meet your project needs. An experienced battery supplier that’s well-versed in a wide range of battery chemistries offers you a greater range of options to meet your precise needs. A full-service manufacturer can also package batteries with wrap or plastic cases and install them in your box build to save production time and money.
