Battery-powered security cameras typically use rechargeable or non-rechargeable lithium-ion batteries as a power source. Different types of batteries have different lifespan and characteristics.
Lithium-ion batteries usually have a long service life and can perform multiple charge and discharge cycles, so they are suitable for long-term use of equipment.
Non-rechargeable alkaline battery has a relatively short life, and needs to be replaced with a new battery after disposable use.
Lithium-ion batteries: This type of battery is widely used in devices such as cameras. They have the advantages of high energy density, lighter, small size, and no memory effect. Lithium-ion batteries are also divided into two different types: columnar and polymer lithium-ion batteries.
Alkaline batteries: Alkaline batteries are a common and affordable alternative. They are relatively cheap and easy to find, but their capacity and longevity are relatively low.
When choosing the appropriate power supply to supply the security camera:
Expected working time for the camera: If it requires a long time, it is recommended to choose a rechargeable lithium-ion battery for reuse.
Battery capacity and charging time: larger capacity batteries can provide longer camera time, but charging time will increase accordingly.
Battery replacement frequency: Alkaline batteries may be a more practical option for single use or for regular battery replacement.
It is important to select the appropriate battery type that meets the camera energy needs and the use environment, and follow the correct use and processing procedures to ensure safety and optimal performance.
