What does mAh mean?

The capacity of a rechargeable battery is measured in milliampere hours (mAh). As a general rule, the bigger the number, the more energy charge the battery can store and the longer it will work before needing to be recharged.

How can I test batteries to see if they're still good?

We've all tried rubbing batteries to try and get the last bit of life out of them, but we'd recommend using our Maplin Universal Battery Tester to see how much energy is left in your batteries.

How long will batteries last if not used?

The lifespan of a battery depends on whether they're Lithium or alkaline. Lithium batteries have a shelf life of around 10 years, whereas alkaline batteries typically last between 5 - 10 years.

Can you mix different battery brands together?

We'd recommend that you try to avoid mixing different brands together. It could result in battery leakage or even reduce the performance of your device.
