The AG13 is a small and round Alkaline button cell battery with a nominal voltage of 1.5V. An alkaline battery is a battery that uses manganese dioxide and zinc to create a reaction, and it is an economical alternative to silver oxide batteries, while still providing high capacity and long usage. LR44 button cell is a primary cell battery, and it is non-rechargeable.

This battery works effectively in both low and high temperature and is commonly used in these products: Laser pointers, Alarm transmitter, Rescue heroes, Children Books, small radios, Small Toys, Electronic Games, and other low drain devices.

Some common battery models that are compatible is known as AG13, L1154.

Sometimes, the battery is labeled with both model # LR44 and 357, which is not exactly correct, since they refer to different battery chemistries. LR44 is an alkaline battery, while 357 is a silver oxide battery. The reason they are sometimes listed on the same battery is because LR44 and 357 are both the same size, but its chemistry and price are very different. As mentioned above, an alkaline battery is made up of manganese dioxide and zinc, while the silver oxide battery is made up of silver and zinc. As the price of silver is high, the price of silver oxide battery(357) is also much higher than the alkaline battery.

For the higher price, the silver oxide battery has qualities that the alkaline battery does not have. It has a longer usage life and maintains a consistent voltage during use. This is perfect for sensitive and precise devices like watches or digital meters. The 357 silver oxide button cell battery is recommended for use in watch, digital caliper, cameras, Blood Glucose, Cholesterol Testing Meters, and other medical devices.
