7093OT: Energizer Lithium AAA Batteries Now Available
- Oct 21, 2004Just a brief note: Energizer's Lithium AAA batteries are showing up
in stores. The first ones I sighted around here were in a Kroger
(supermarket) about three weeks ago. But they are in lots more
Four lithium AAA cells weigh 1/2 once less than their alkaline
equivalents, function down to -40 below, have a storage life of 15
years, and provide a longer runtime. They cost about $9.
I use 'em in a Princeton Tech Attitude, a waterproof, 3-led, 4xAAA
light that has a useable runtime of about 35 hours (120 total).
Using lithium batteries gives it a total weight of 2oz. and a likely
usable runtime of 45 hours.
