Why Are Lithium Ultimate Batteries Recommended And Not Alkaline Or Rechargeable Batteries?

Lithium ultimate batteries are recommended based on these operating principles.

  • Lasts 5 times longer than any alkaline battery
  • Higher energy density than NiMh and NiCd batteries
  • Longer run time than NiMh or NiCd batteries
  • Cost less than NiMH rechargeable batteries Low self-discharge rate (about 10% per month)
  • Lightweight Use for high-drain devices
  • Operates between -40 deg. F and 140 deg F

AA lithium batteries on Ambient Weather

Alkaline batteries operate around above 10 deg F. Rechargable batteries often have a limited life and mean constant replacing, as well as a narrow temperature range.
