What are Primary Batteries?
A primary battery cell
, also known as a primary battery
, is a type of battery designed for single use and not easily rechargeable. It is a galvanic cell that stores electricity for convenient use and has a very good shelf life. When the chemicals inside the cell are depleted and the electrochemical reaction is complete, the primary cell stops generating electricity and is discarded. The advantages of the primary battery
, which can be used very frequently in the industrial field, are many.
What are the Uses of Primary Batteries?
Primary battery cells
are widely used in a variety of applications where a disposable power source is needed, such as remote controls, flashlights, toys and other devices that do not require frequent battery replacement. In addition, one of the most common uses is in meters and industrial devices. They are also colloquially known as meter batteries
. It is widely used in different sizes in applications such as electricity meters, water meters, natural gas meters, etc.
Types of Primary Batteries
We can list the types as follows:
- Alkaline batteries
- Zinc-carbon batteries
- Lithium batteries
- Zinc chloride batteries
- Silver oxide batteries
- Magnesium batteries
- Nickel oxyhydroxide
: These are the most common type of primary battery and are widely used in portable devices such as power tools, radios, toys and remote controls. They use zinc for their negative electrodes and manganese dioxide for their positive.
: These are also known as dry batteries and are commonly used in flashlights, portable radios and other low-energy consuming devices. They use zinc for the negative electrodes and carbon for the positive.
: These are disposable batteries popular in portable consumer devices such as cameras, watches and calculators. They are lightweight and have a high energy density, making them ideal for use in small devices.
Zinc chloride batteries
: These are similar to zinc-carbon batteries, but use a different electrolyte. They are commonly used in low-energy devices such as watches and remote controls.
Silver oxide batteries
: These are often used in watches, calculators and other small electronic devices. They have high energy density and a long shelf life.
: These are used in medical devices, military equipment and other applications where long shelf life and high energy density are required. They are also used in marine applications and meter types due to their resistance to saltwater corrosion.
: These are often used in hearing aids, watches and other small electronic devices. They have high energy density and long shelf life.
In addition to all these areas of use, almost all types of primary batteries
are widely used in meters
with different combinations according to size and capacity-voltage value or simply.
