What is the Difference Between Alkaline Batteries and Ordinary Carbon Batteries?

November 1, 2019

Know precisely what you’re buying in terms of quality, density, and longevity.

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between alkaline batteries and ordinary carbon batteries? Most people have no clue what they’re buying. They assume that they’re getting the best deal, too, when they buy expensive batteries. What they don’t realize is that they need to replace the cells sooner because they don’t last as long.

To illustrate the point we’re trying to make, we’re going to identify the differences between alkaline and carbon batteries, so you’re able to see why one is superior over the other. You’ll get to know more about how to use the different types of batteries and why brand matters in terms of quality. By the time you’re done reading about the two types of batteries, you’ll have a definite opinion as to which is better for use in your household and workplace.

We’re now going to go over which batteries are better for your home, vehicle, and work. You’ll learn why you cannot mix and match alkaline and carbon batteries, as well as why it’s best to use the same brand of batteries in your devices. Using your favorite battery-operated items won’t be an issue because you’ll have plenty of batteries available to replenish them when the other batteries have gone flat.

Which Batteries are Better, Alkaline, or Carbon Batteries?

Voniko ULTRA Alkaline AA Bulk Batteries

Alkaline batteries have a higher energy density and longer shelf-life. Voniko AAA bulk batteries are an excellent example of this. With a shelf-life of up to ten years and seven to nine times the power of ordinary carbon batteries, it’s easy to see why people prefer alkaline batteries.  Our batteries are environmentally-friendly, available for use in extreme temperatures, and free of mercury, lead, and cadmium. They’re better for the planet and all of its inhabitants!

Carbon batteries don’t last near as long. They contribute to environmental issues by leaking harmful substances into the ground, which contaminate ecosystems. It’s not recommended to buy and store large quantities of carbon batteries in bulk because they don’t have the length of shelf life alkaline batteries have. If you don’t get around to using them right away, you can count on throwing them away which is a waste of time and energy.

Alkaline batteries are more reliable, safer to store and use outdoors, environmentally-friendly, cost-effective, and easy-to-buy. You can order them online at Voniko.com and take advantage of cost savings. You’ll never be without AA bulk batteries because you’ll be able to store them in your home, RV, workplace, and bug-out bag without issue. There’s no need to pull them out of devices to keep them lasting longer or putting them in the fridge in hopes of prolonging their lifespan.

Can You Mix and Match Alkaline and Carbon Batteries?

No, you cannot! The two types of batteries work very differently. Mixing them could cause a chemical reaction that could be very detrimental to the device you’ve put them in. You should never mix alkaline and carbon batteries if you don’t want leakage to be a problem that causes damage to your battery-operated machine.

Corroded batteries destroy items quickly. Investing in batteries that have double-barrier leak protection prevents corrosion from occurring in the first place. It’s a quality that all Voniko batteries have as a safety measure. It prevents the ‘juice’ contained in the batteries from leaking and ruining the items that they’re in. Protecting your high dollar electronics, tools, and children’s toys from being destroyed by a leaky battery is a priority.  You don’t have that reassurance when you buy and use other brands’ carbon batteries.

Are Alkaline Batteries Better Than Heavy Duty?

If you don’t have experience buying either type of battery, it’s hard to know which is the better option. Even though Heavy Duty batteries sound like they’re the superior product, they’re not. They don’t last near as long as high-quality Voniko double A bulk batteries, which have seven to nine times the ‘juice’ as traditional carbon batteries.

Another thing that makes alkaline batteries better is their performance in extreme temperatures. They can handle colder weather, which isn’t the case for Heavy Duty batteries. Voniko alkaline batteries also have a shelf life of up to ten years. Heavy Duty batteries only last up to two years when stored in a cool, dry place.

From a price standpoint, it makes sense to buy the best quality batteries available as opposed to buying ones that only last a few years when stored. Voniko batteries have more ‘juice,’ too, meaning that you need to replace them less often. You’ll buy fewer packs of bulk batteries because you’ll be able to use the batteries for extended lengths of time. Without you needing to replace them all the time, you’ll have more batteries available for use at a later date.

Is Mixing Battery Brands Bad?

Again, whenever possible, you should use the same brand of battery because you’ll get longer use out of Voniko batteries as opposed to other brands. As long as the batteries are the same size and type (alkaline, carbon), however, you shouldn’t have a problem using multiple brands. You may find that they don’t work as long as promised.

If you have no other option but to mix brands, go ahead and do so. Buying in bulk prevents you from running out of Voniko batteries and being forced to mix and match brands. You’ll have the same type of cells to use at all times, making it less of an issue about quality and longevity. All Voniko batteries have a shelf life of seven to ten years.

Alkaline Batteries from Voniko are the Best Option You Have for Your Devices

Now you have a much clearer idea of what makes alkaline batteries superior to carbon batteries. You know what makes them last longer and how to store and use them. You’ll avoid doing things that could potentially damage your battery-operated items, too, such as mixing and matching alkaline and carbon batteries. Instead, you’ll keep your battery choices consistent by opting to use the same brand and chemistry type.

Voniko batteries give you plenty of incentive to stock up on triple A bulk batteries. You can stow them away without fear of them losing their charge. You can use them when it’s extremely cold outside. You can also dispose of them without concern that they are causing the planet even more harm than it’s currently experiencing. You’re a responsible consumer who makes purchasing decisions that benefit you, your family, and the environment.
