What’s the difference between alkaline and manganese batteries?


For Current-hungry Devices

Alkaline batteries produce more current than manganese batteries, and are therefore suitable for devices that demand high continuous current, such as radio-controlled cars, powerful toys, and lamps.

For Low-draw Devices

Manganese batteries last much longer in devices that don’t require a lot of current to operate, and in devices that are used infrequently, such as remote controllers, torches, and many kinds of toys.
