AA battery

An AA battery (pronounced [double a] or /ˈdʌbəl eɪ/) is a dry cell-type battery commonly used in portable electronic devices. The AA battery type was standardized by ANSI in 1947, and is designated E91 by DIN and AM3 by JIS. Internationally the IEC designated it as LR6 (alkaline), R6 (carbon-zinc), KR157/51 (nickel-cadmium), HR6 (nickel-metal-hydride), and FR6 (lithium-iron-disulfide). Other names include MN1500 and HP7. In France it's known colloquially as Mignon. An AA battery is composed of a single electrochemical cell.
