LR44 battery

LR44 battery

LR44 is the IEC name for a standard type of 1.5 volt button cell alkaline battery, commonly used in laser pointers and watches.

The silver-oxide battery variant SR44 has the same outer dimensions and approximately the same nominal voltage as an LR44 cell, but higher energy density. Although LR44 and SR44 are two distinctly different batteries, in common usage they are usually considered the same battery with only a 'quality' difference.

IEC code

The first letter of an IEC 60083 battery code indicates the electrochemical system used:

* L: (−) zinc electrodealkali metal hydroxide electrolytemanganese dioxide electrode (+)
* S: (−) zinc electrode – alkali metal hydroxide electrolyte – silver oxide electrode (+)
* P: (−) zinc electrode – alkali metal hydroxide electrolyte – oxygen electrode (+)

The size-code R44 indicates a round (cylindrical) form, with 11.4±0.2 mm diameter and 5.2±0.2 mm height. [British/European standard BS EN 60086:1998, Primary batteries.]
