Battery Size Chart

The size and format of a battery is crucial in buying criteria. All questions are answered in this Battery Size chart. If you make a mistake in the dimensions of your battery it will not fit into the machine or tool you want, and will be unusable. The size chart list down all batteries dimensions and formats you can check the size or the code of the format of the battery.

Like in many dimension and size regulations, there’s an international standard, set up by IEC but in Anglo-Saxon countries batteries sizes are detemined in letter (AA, AAA C, D, etc.), while in other countries a combination of a letter and digit (AA, Lr20, 6Lr61) is used.

Here are the most commonly used batteries sizes in the world

Batteries Sizes

  1. AA Batteries.
  2. AAA Batteries.
  3. C Batteries.
  4. D Batteries.
  5. 9V PP3 Batteries.
  6. 6LR61 Batteries.
  7. N LR1 Batteries.
  8. AAAA Batteries.
most common battery sizes that are used worldwide

Generally, the larger the battery is, the more capacity it has for energy storage. So even though a big and small battery are both rated at 1.5V, the big battery stores more energy and provides a longer battery life.
