Choosing the Right Battery Choosing the Right Battery

What’s the difference between alkaline and manganese batteries?

Alkaline

Suitable for devices that use high continuous current

Alkaline batteries produce higher current than manganese. This is because the electrolyte consists of potassium hydroxide, an alkaline-aqueous solution that enables a high flow of current.

Alkaline batteries
For Current-hungry Devices

Manganese

For devices requiring a small current load, such as remote controllers

Dry batteries consist of three materials: metal, metal oxide, and electrolyte. Manganese dioxide is used for the positive electrode, zinc chloride for the electrolyte, and zinc for the negative electrode.

Manganese batteries
For Low-draw Devices
