Battery Details.

Do not confuse this battery with the 1/2AA size rechargeable type that are 1.2 volts, the A544 (sometimes referred to as 1/2AA) that are 6 volts or the LR42 "B" cell.

Some lists "cross over" in their data giving either type the same reference number. Below is all the information I can find. You decide which suits your application.

About the Chemistry:

NOTE: These Lithium types are NOT rechargeable, they are single use batteries.
