Different Battery Types-Introduction and Applications
Batteries play a very important role in our lives these days as they allow us to use portable power. However, what most of the users do not know about batteries is that there are several types and each of them has its different usage and significance. So, here we will be elaborating on the different types of batteries and their applications.
Secondary Battery Types
So, the first type of battery that we are going to consider here is the secondary battery. Although the name may be a little misleading here the meaning of secondary batteries is that these batteries can be recharged. It means that you can use these batteries over and over by charging them again and again.
The interesting thing is that these batteries come in all different shapes and sizes and there are a lot of options available in these batteries. So, here we will be discussing some of the different types of secondary batteries.
One of the most commonly used secondary batteries of the time is lithium-ion batteries. These are the batteries that made it a very compact size while they can provide power backup for a long time. Not only this but these batteries are also able to last for a long time making these the best choices for the devices where compact, yet powerful batteries are required.
Another type of secondary battery is the acid batteries which are available in different configurations. While the name acid batteries tell about the general category, there are several types in this category like the AGM battery, Gel battery, Deep Cycle battery, and some others as well.
Nickel Cadmium Battery
It is another type of secondary battery which is mostly used in situations where a long time of power backup is not necessary, but it is necessary to provide power in a large punch.
Primary Battery Types
The term primary battery can also be misleading for some who do not know its real meaning. While it may seem like a Battery that is used primarily as the power source for some products, things are not that way. What primary battery means is that the battery is made for single usage.
It also means that the battery will be disposable after a single usage. When we talk about the primary batteries several types have different applications as well. Some of the primary battery types are the following.
One of the common types of primary batteries is alkaline batteries. These batteries are usually used where there is a need for long-term power delivery without any pauses, but the power requirements are not that large. Small pencil battery cells and button cells are common examples of these batteries.
Zinc Carbon Batteries
Some devices need the battery to last long as well as provide constant power for some time. Zinc carbon batteries are made for such applications as the primary battery. They fulfill the need for products and when they are used, they are discarded and replaced by new batteries.
Zinc Chloride Batteries
Zinc Chloride batteries are also similar to Zinc Carbon batteries, but these batteries work as a primary battery where high voltage and current are required. These batteries are known for their long-term performance while keeping the devices powered on. These perform the best when there is some pause between the usage cycles.
Different Types of Battery Applications
While there are different types of batteries falling into the categories of secondary and primary batteries, they have different uses as well. Here we will be elaborating on the uses of these different battery types. We will also elaborate on how these are the perfect choice for the applications in each case.
The following are different types of applications of secondary batteries. Usually, these applications include those scenarios where the batteries are either recharged after a single use or they are constantly being charged.
Lithium-ion batteries are mostly used as the power source of mobile phones, tablet computers, and laptops. All of these devices need power for a long time while the batteries are required to have a compact and long life. Lithium-ion batteries fulfill all of these requirements becoming the perfect choice for these needs.
There are different types of acid batteries, and these are used mainly for power backup systems and for ignition in vehicles. The reason for these being used here is that these batteries can perform in harsh weather conditions.
Nickel Cadmium Batteries
There are some products like power tools and toys that need batteries to provide power for a short time, but the power delivery needs to be strong. In this case, these batteries are the best choice. Being secondary makes them an even better option as it saves a lot on cost.
The following are some of the different types of applications of primary batteries.
The alkaline batteries are usually used in small-sized products which do not require a lot of power. One of the most common examples of their application is used in wristwatches. Here they easily perform for years.
Zinc Carbon Batteries
The Zinc-Carbon batteries are used primarily in the products like Flash Lights and toys where recharging is not a major need. These batteries power the product for some decent time and then they are replaced.
Zinc Chloride Batteries
The Zinc Chloride batteries are often in kid’s toys which not only need high power but also need long-lasting power delivery. These are usually the 9-volt batteries that are found in the remote controls of kids' toys.
These were the different types of applications of different battery types that you needed to know. Here we were discussing the most commonly used batteries in our daily lives.
While all of us use different types of batteries in our daily life activities, most people do not even know the significance of these batteries. So, here we were discussing some different types of batteries and their applications in our lives.
