Notes

  1. IEC prefix for alkaline is L, thus a "Lady" cell is actually always LR1 as only Alkaline version now
  2. The mAH and Mass for Zinc Carbon unless Alkaline only. 0.9V end point approximately. Thus a B Cell capacity is higher for 10mA HT than 50mA series LT. Exact capacity depends on load used and end point (1.1, 1.0 or 0.9V). Quoted capacities are for 0.7V to 0.9V
  3. The 7.5V  Round 90AH Zinc Air "fencer" batteries have 5 off Zinc Air based "Flag" style cells (61mm x 152mm). See also Type  "O" cell
  4.  Available 2014
  5. Available also as Alkaline version in 2014.
  6. Adaptor to fiit common cells available.
  7. Gallagher brand Zinc Air Electric Fence Battery
  8. Normally cell/battery dimensions include the terminal(s). The ANSI cell heights in some documents appear to be excluding the top connection "pip"/cap/terminal.
