Product Description



Multipurpose dry batteries, often called dry cell batteries, are like little power packs we use in many things. They work by using chemicals inside to make electricity without any liquid. These batteries are in so many devices we use every day. Inside a multipurpose dry battery, there's a metal case, a part called the anode (usually made of zinc), another part called the cathode (usually made of manganese dioxide), and something called a separator.

All these pieces are put together to make a sealed battery that gives us power. One of the great things about these batteries is that we can use them in any direction, which makes them handy for lots of things like remote controls, flashlights, radios, and cameras. They're known for being reliable, lasting a long time, and keeping a steady amount of power.

Multipurpose dry batteries come in different sizes like AA, AAA, C, D, and 9-volt, and some have more power than others. This means we can use them in all kinds of devices, from small gadgets to big ones. So, these batteries are our go-to power source for many things because they're easy to use, portable, and work in so many devices we use at home and work.

For use in transistor radio receivers, flashlights, and cassette tape recorders. Multipurpose dry batteries are categorized into R03, R6, R14, and R20 based on designations and further classified as 'Standard (S)' or 'High Power (P)'.

This standard pertains to multipurpose dry batteries, specifically Zinc Carbon batteries in various sizes, such as R03, R6, R14, and R20, used for a range of applications. The standard defines tests, dimensions, and requirements for Leclanche type dry batteries with designations: For use in transistor radio receivers, flashlights, and hearing aids.
