What is the FAQs about AA batteries

How long can AA batteries last for?

There is no easy answer to the question of which AA batteries will last the longest. It's more of a "how long is a piece"-type question. Practically, it will depend on many factors including:

The application you're using the batteries for, and the environment/conditions you're using them in.

It is the type of equipment they are installed in (e.g., high-drain or low-drain).The nominal voltage of the type of cell in question will typically be either.

1.5V is the standard nominal voltage of batteries of this size. AA 1.5V batteries, which are the most widely available and common versions of zinc-carbon and alkaline cells, are the most popular and widely available.

3v/3.6V are both fairly common nominal voltages for batteries designed for high-drain applications (lithium cell batteries are often sold as 3.6V AA batteries).

No matter what nominal voltage you choose for AA batteries, make sure that your device accepts units of this rating. Under powered cells can cause performance problems, while batteries that are too powerful can cause damage to circuitry and components.

What is the intensity of their workload and how long they are active.The manufacturing process and quality of the materials used by a brand are important.

It's difficult to calculate and compare expected AA battery lifetime.Those are the main rules of thumb.

Standard alkaline AA batteries:

They won't last for very long in high drain devices like digital cameras. They can't produce their full power quickly enough to handle the demands of high quality electronics.

When over-taxed, or for prolonged periods of time, can leak.

They are better used in low drain devices that have fewer spikes in power draw.

They have a long shelf life and are the best-selling AA batteries in the short-term.

Lithium AA batteries

Much better than alkaline at coping with high-drain demands, and can last for years in the right sort of device.

They have a very long shelf life and don't leak over time.

These are not usually available in rechargeable versions (see the comparison with the lithium-ion versions above).

Tend to be more costly than AA alkaline cell prices.

Rechargeable AA batteries

It is likely that this option is a better choice for devices that will be in heavy or regular use for long periods of time, particularly with higher-drain circuits.

They are more expensive in the short term, but they quickly become more affordable than single-use disposables (even budget alkaline disposables), if you plan to drain them frequently and quickly.

You should buy more than the required amount for each device so that you always have a spare set.

You will need a separate charger or a bundle to charge your device.

What is the shelf life of the Rechargeable AA batteries?

Is there any special storage conditions to observe?

Do they leak over time or under hard use?

Thank you for FAQ.

Now i used to think that i was cool,
drivin' around on fossil fuel,
until i saw what i was doin',
was drivin' down the road to ruin. --JT

What is the shelf life of the Rechargeable AA batteries?
Mylion: over 1000times

Is there any special storage conditions to observe?
Mylion: Storage temp.range:-10~60°C≤30 days, -10~45°C≤90 days, - 10~20°C≤360 days

Do they leak over time or under hard use?
Mylion: no leakage

 Most of this appears to be plagarized from a section on the RS Components website in the UK...a few words changed a little bit.  Do you work for them?  Or for another manufacturer in batteries or lighting? 

On this site I think most of us are very knowledgeable and experienced with batteries of all types...mostly lithium-ion and NiMH these days and many do not like alkaline cells anymore.  We usually use the basic math of electrical theory to figure out how long a battery can last in a device.
