Information and Product Offerings for Lithium Batteries
Lithium Batteries are non rechargeable batteries commonly used in countless electronic devices today, both in industry, institutions and in the consumer world. They offer a very long shelf life and are the popular choice for many. Non rechargeable batteries are also called “disposable” or“single use”. It simply means that they are not rechargeable.
Lithium chemistry in batteries, came to us circa 1980’s.Lithium is a metal with very low density and it has the greatest electrochemical and energy to weight ratio. This makes is a superior chemistry for use in batteries.
A warning to all who might not be aware: Never try to recharge non rechargeable batteries! To do so, poses a substantial risk for leakage and battery rupture.
To help you understand a little about each type of lithium battery we offer, their voltages, model numbers and their applications,we’ve divided this page into paragraphs for each type. Each category of Lithium Battery has a link at the beginning of the section so you can go directly to our product offerings for that type of lithium battery immediately if you wish.
Photo Lithium Batteries
Photo Lithium batteries have the following commonly used model numbers: CR123A, CR2, CRP2, 2CR5 and CRV3 and there are rechargeable formats to these as well, made with Lithium Ion chemistry and those are discussed on the same pages as the links for the CR123A, CR2, CRP2, 2CR5 and CRV3 above. Of course, brand name manufacturers label their versions of these batteries with their own model numbers and are equal and equivalent to those listed above. For example, Energizer calls theirs: the EL123A, Duracell's version is the DL123A, while Rayovac's model number is the RL123A. The leading name brand Photo Lithium battery manufacturers are: Duracell, Energizer, Panasonic, Rayovac,Titanium, and Sanyo.
Photo Lithium Batteries have voltages of either 3 or 6 volts. They are used often in today’s digital cameras, flashlights, personal computers and memory backup.They offer long lasting performance and have long shelf lives, typically 10 years.
The price of photo lithium batteries can vary substantially from brand to brand and can become expensive when purchased on blister card. For example, the Duracell 2CR5, can range in price anywhere between $5.95 and $12.95, depending on the source. Simply put, if you don’t require the batteries to be blister card packaged, say for re-sale purposes, you ought to buy them in bulk as you are assured significant savings right there.
When you find a trustworthy and reliable supplier who can deliver what you need at a good price, it’s wise to stock up on whichever model numbers you need, to have them on hand for a long time to come, whether you require the CR123, CR2, 2CR5, CRP2, the CRV3 or several, or all of them! Even if they sit on the shelf for a couple of years, your investment is protected.
You can also buy generic Photo Lithium Batteries which are manufactured in China. The quality might be slightly inferior but the price is accordingly lower and for standard consumer use, there’s barely a noticeable difference in performance, so price usually wins out.

CR 1/3N Lithium Battery
The CR 1/3 N Lithium battery is a 3 volt,non-rechargeable battery rated at 160 mAh (milleampere hours) in capacity.
They offer long shelf-lives and retain their power extremely well, with less than 10% loss (self-discharge) of power over their unused life span.
They are typically used in digital cameras and children’s toys, electronic dog collars, steno pens and all other devices manufactured to use CR 1/3 N Lithium non-rechargeable batteries. Duracell, Energizer, Ray-O-Vac, Ever-Ready, Sanyo and others, manufacture the CR 1/3N Lithium battery, each with their own model numbers such as: 2l76, k58l,CR11108, and 5018LC, to name a few. All are equal in compatibility.
We offer them in generic form and by Sanyo. We sell them in single lots and in packs of 4, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 25, and 50 lots. These batteries measure 11.6mm (0.45") in diameter x 10.6mm (0.42") in height.
The CR 1/3N Lithiums are much more cost effective when purchased in greater quantity. Because of their long shelf life, it’s wise to stock up when you find a reasonable price, if you use this battery regularly.
AA Lithium Battery
AA lithium batteries are 1.5 volts batteries and as with all lithium chemistry batteries, are not rechargeable. They are an ideal alternative to AA alkaline batteries, with far superior performance. The AA lithium delivers 2900 mAh (milleampere hours). Lithium is a high power battery chemistry and is sure to out-perform standard AA Alkalines because they will last 5 times as long! That bears repeating ! FIVE times as long! It’s a great battery for high-drain devices where you’d need high power due to high consumption and therefore, require high performance!
AA Lithiums are manufactured by such brands as:Energizer, Duracell, Camelion, Hitech and Powerizer.
They are not to be confused with AA Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) batteries. There do exist, AA lithium Ions, but they’re NOT available for consumer applications. AA lithium Ion batteries are 3.6 volts and would harm any device that requires a standard 1.5 volt battery.
AA lithium batteries are ideal to use in GPS units, digital cameras, children’s toys, LED (light emitting diode) flashlights, just to name a few applications.Anywhere you’d use AA Alkalines, you may use AA Lithium batteries.
Buying AA lithium batteries online from the right source beats shopping at the average brick and mortar store and buying then in bulk packaging instead of on blister cards will greatly reduce your cost! If you don’t need them for resale purposes, it’s recommended to buy them in bulk and save big!
AA lithium batteries have a very long shelf life, at 6-8 years, so when you do find a great deal from a trusted and reliable supplier, it’s best to stock up for future use with no worries that they can remain on the shelf until you need them!
AAA Lithim Battery
Are you looking for AAA lithium batteries? The AAA Lithium is an ideal alternative to the non-rechargeable AAA alkaline battery.AAA Lithiums deliver 1.5 volts and are sure to out-perform standard AAA Alkalines, even by brand names such as Duracell and Energizer.
AAA Lithium batteries deliver between 1.5 - 3.7 Volts and are used heavily in many consumer electronic devices.
AAA lithium batteries are disposable batteries that have a very long shelf life. The AAA Lithium battery could easily sit on the shelf for 8 years with no worries. Therefore, when you do find a deal on AAA Lithiums, it's best to take the opportunity to stock up for future use.
9 Volt Lithium Batteries
These are high power, non rechargeable batteries that also offer a very long shelf life. They are light-weight batteries.
They are the IDEAL choice for smoke detectors as well as metal detectors, alarm clocks, portable radios, flashlights, and all other 9volt devices where the battery will remain in the device for long intervals between use. Warning to all those who might not be aware: NEVER use 9 Volt RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES in your smoke detector. They discharge quickly when not in use, (called self discharge) and will likely be rendered useless quickly without recharge. A smoke detector is a device which means nothing, unless it can be counted on to perform reliably. Only use NON rechargeable 9 volt batteries in ALL your smoke detectors.
9 Volt Lithiums are available in 600 mAh and 1200 mAh. (mAh is the abbreviation for milliampere-hours). The higher the mAh rating, the longer the battery will last.
These batteries are comparatively more expensive than say, AA Alkaline batteries, so when you find a deal on 9 volt lithiums, it pays to stock up. The average cost of a 9 volt lithium battery can range between $6.00 and $9.00,depending on the manufacturer and the source seller. It’s also good to know that 9 volt lithiums rated at 600 mAh cost 50% less than a 9 volt lithium with a 1200 mAh rating, so be wary of thinking you are getting a good deal if you buy 600 mAh, as you are paying less, but only getting half the power. This is a logical no-brainer. Cost in batteries always factors in capacity.
