HQ Zinc-Carbon Standard Power AA
- Size: AA, Mignon, Penlite.
- Voltage: 1.5 V(DC).
- System: Zinc-Carbon.
- Height: 50.5mm
- Diameter: 14.5mm
This type batteries was used before alkaline.
Performance is not very good compared to alkaline, but they are the best Zinc-Carbon I have tested.
This chemistry has about 1/3 the energy of alkaline and cannot handle a heavy load. Even unloaded it has much shorter lifetime than alkaline.
I do not see any reason to use this chemistry anymore
