Batteries and chargers, essential fuel for your torch
Batteries and chargers are the energy suppliers for torches and tube lights. The range of batteries and internal accumulators for torches fortunately has changed a lot in the past years. Where you previously only could choose from an AA, AAA, C-cell or D-cell, you now can select the right energy source for the right application. We also see a clear trend that types of batteries are chosen first and the correct torch searched afterwards. If you want to know more about choosing the correct battery, we explain here everything.
Alkaline batteries are suitable as non-rechargeable batteries. They perform well, also work well in low temperatures, have a great capacity and long life. Ideal for the occasional or less frequent use. Many new lights are equipped with rechargeable 18650 batteries. They are very practical in use, extremely performing and can be used very intensively. Special 18650 battery chargers are also available.
If you don't use your battery or accumulators for a longer period of time, remove them from the device. That prevents them from leaking, which could seriously damage your torch for example.
