The first point is what the difference between alkaline battery and non-alkaline batteries is?

Although both alkaline and non-alkaline batteries are derived from the same chemical composition, their performance functions are very different. For example, alkaline battery are heavier, while non-alkaline batteries are slightly lighter. The two types of batteries include AA, AAA, C, D, and 9V batteries, and they can be used as long as the correct type is selected.

Alkaline battery use different electrolytes from non-alkaline batteries. For example, alkaline battery use potassium hydroxide (chemical formula KOH, also known as caustic potassium or caustic alkali, which is also the origin of the "alkaline" name), while non-alkaline batteries may use zinc chloride (chemical formula ZnCl2, Also called zinc chloride powder). The chemical composition of these electrolytes is different, and the chemical reactions that occur are also different. Due to the nature of the electrolyte, the alkaline battery is more durable.

The most obvious difference between alkaline and non-alkaline batteries is the amount of power they can provide. Carbon batteries are not as durable as alkaline battery. The durability of alkaline battery is 6 to 9 times longer than that of traditional carbon batteries. Moreover, alkaline battery are more environmentally friendly because they do not contain harmful substances such as mercury, cadmium, and lead, making them a very "green" product.

The second point is the advantages of alkaline battery.

1. Alkaline battery can be used in extremely high and extremely low temperature environments, while carbon batteries cannot. In high and low temperature environments, the efficiency of carbon batteries is greatly reduced. For electrical appliances that are often used outdoors, it can be clearly seen from here.

2.Alkaline battery have unique environmental advantages and do not contain harmful components such as lead, mercury and cadmium, so waste batteries will not cause serious damage to the environment.
