Fuji Batteries – Power for All Your Devices
Fuji batteries power a wide range of low, medium and high drain devices. Everything from children’s toys to high-end flashlights and radio transmitters. EcoCentricNow distributes an assortment of battery sizes AAA, AA, C, D and 9V and battery types including Fuji Alkaline, Fuji Alkaline Digital, Fuji Heavy Duty and Fuji NiMH Rechargeable.
Know Your Devices Power Requirements
Not all devices are the same; particularly, when it comes to voltage and amperage requirements. It’s crucial you select the correct battery based upon whether your device is low, medium or high drainage. Always refer to the manufacture’s device specifications to ensure selection of the appropriate battery type. Never mix old batteries with new!
Low Drain Devices typically include clocks, remote controls, low end flashlights and smoke, CO2 and Radon detectors that primarily connect to home and office AC current.
Comparatively, Medium Drain Devices are quality flashlights & headlamps, remote controls for vehicles and drones, multi-function radio, walkie-talkie, children toys, smoke, CO2 and Radon detectors that generally are not connected to AC current. Remember, at minimum you should check smoke and CO2 detectors at least once a year. Follow the advice fire professionals, with the end of Day Light Savings Time be sure to always replace batteries that independently power home safety monitors.
Additionally, High Drain Devices which include quality flashlights and headlamps (often with high lumen output), digital cameras, transmitters for remote control vehicles and drones, Walkie-talkie radios, etc. High drain devices typically have an average current draw of 500mA or above.
Fuji Batteries Commitment to Performance Excellence and Environmental Stewardship
Fuji batteries undergo independent testing to verify performance, longevity and quality. Comparatively, Fuji batteries perform equal to or better than costlier global brands. Manufacturing processes do not emit ozone depleting chemicals and packaging utilizes at minimum 75% recycled materials. Equally important, batteries undergo leak tightness testing to ensure no discharge of electrolyte.
Fuji Batteries Disposal
Landfill disposal is generally acceptable for all Fuji batteries but checking with state law is a good idea. EcoCentricNow encourages our customers to dispose of batteries, regardless of manufacturer and state, by utilizing community hazardous waste facilities. Go green from cradle to grave!
Battery Power – How A Battery Works and Power Capacity
Did you know the negative terminal of a battery called the anode provides power as it discharges? Electrons flow from the anode to an external circuit associated with the device in use. Think of the mnemonic ACID, Anode Current into Device.
As the battery provides power a chemical reaction occurs in an electrically conducting solution called an electrolyte. This solution separates into cations and anions. Movement of anions and cations in opposite directions within the solution produces current. Remember opposites attract: a cathode attracts positively charged cations, so the electrode must be negatively charged. Conversely, for the anode to attract negatively charge anions the electrode must carry a positive charge.
Power capacity is how much energy a battery stores.. Power is expressed in Watt-hours (the symbol Wh). A Watt-hour is the voltage (V) the battery provides multiplied by the current (Amps) a battery delivers over time (typically hours). Voltage x Amps x hours = Wh.
