Sizes and Formats of cells and batteries

Published on 10/10/2014

The importance of the format of a battery or a battery is crucial in buying criteria. If you make a mistake in the dimensions of your battery it will not fit into its housing and will be unusable. You must check the size or just the code of the format of the element. You will find here a summary table of the main elements that you'll find in many devices.

An international standard IEC has imposed a standard size but in Anglo-Saxon countries used the references in letter (AA, C, D, etc.) in other countries using references letter and digit (AA, Lr20, 6Lr61)

Here are the most commonly used batteries in the world matches (actual size):
