You know the drill: An unexpected storm has knocked out the power and so the search begins for a flashlight. But will it have any juice left to turn it on? Or the air conditioning unit goes down and that battery-powered fan can be the hero of the day – if there are any D cell batteries to be found. And bang that TV remote control on the coffee table is all you want, but what is really needed are two fresh AA batteries.

Don’t be caught without the batteries you need to power your essential devices.

You can never have enough AA batteries. They power most remote controls, toys, digital cameras, LED flashlights, garage door openers, wall clocks and more. By the way, did you know the Energizer “bunny” dates all the way back to 1988? It was created as a parody to the Duracell Bunny after Duracell’s trademark on the drumming rabbit lapsed in 1988.

In earlier times, D cell batteries were the workhorse of the battery family, powering just about every device. These days, they still play an important role with larger flashlights and other storm-preparedness items such as fans and small coolers. Trust us: You’re still going to need D batteries on hand.

Like their AA battery relatives, the AAA battery is most often used with remote controls, MP3 players, digital cameras and other small electronics. It’s not like you can choose what battery to run your device, but it’s worth noting – perhaps for trivia purposes only – that both the AA and AAA batteries deliver the same voltage.

Once upon a time, 9 volt batteries were the standard power device for most transistor radios. (Actually some battery manufacturers still refer to this model as a “transistor battery.”) These days, they’re the pesky batteries that power your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide detectors – the ones that always seem to die out at 2 in the morning. That’s reason enough to keep an extra pack of these in the closet.

Slightly smaller than a D cell battery – both can trace their history back to the 1920s – the C cell is the go-to power device for many musical instruments, some flashlights and other medium-sized toys.

A 3V battery is designed to be leak-free and perform in extreme temperatures. That’s why it’s ideal for use in small electronics such as calculators, watches, fitness trackers and small toys.
