What is the difference between C and sub C batteries?

What is the difference between C and sub C batteries?

Sub C batteries physically resemble what could be described as a smaller version of the Regular or Standard C size battery. They measure 23 mm in diameter, by 43 mm in length. They’re available in both NiMH chemistry (Nickel Metal Hydride) and NiCD (Nickel Cadmium) chemistry, both of which are rechargeable.

What is a sub C battery?

Sub C batteries look like a small version of a Standard C size cell. They measure 23mm in diameter by 43mm in length. Both NiMh and NiCd Sub C cells are most commonly found in cordless power tools such as drills by manufacturers such as Dewalt, Ryobi, Makita, and Bosch, to name a few.

Are all C type batteries the same?

Are C cells and LR14/R14 batteries the same? Yes, they are the same size of battery with different names. ANSI calls C-cells ’14’, and IEC standards call it ‘R14’.

How long do type C batteries last?

Energizer MAX® AA, AAA, C, and D cells last up to 10 years in storage, while our 9V lasts up to 5 years in storage. Energizer® EcoAdvanced® AA and AAA last up to 12 years in storage.

Can I use C2 batteries instead of C?

The biggest difference is probably the voltage – C batteries are 1.5 volts each, while C2 batteries are 3 volts each. Other than that, they both have almost the same diameter. So if you need a battery with a higher voltage, go for the C2s – but otherwise, either type will do the trick.

Can I replace a NiCd battery with a NiMH battery?

Ni-MH cannot be used instead of Ni-Cd, as the Ni-MH will degenerate quickly because it will be charged under the charging conditions for Ni-Cd (which are different to those of the Ni-MH).

Are there different size C batteries?

Although it is possible for C-cell batteries to have different capacities and voltages, the physical size remains the same. C type batteries are built to a standard size to ensure maximum compatibility with both devices and accessories such as battery holders.

Do Lithium batteries come in size C?

Lithium non-rechargeable C size/26500 batteries are commonly Lithium Thionyl Chloride (Li-SOCl2) batteries featuring extremely low-self discharge rate (<1% per year), high capacity, and are able to operate at low temperatures.

Can I replace a NiCd battery with a NiMH?
