Do alkaline batteries last five times longer?

Answer:

Yes, but only if you compare the best alkaline battery to the worst zinc-carbon battery. In addition, there must be an unusual situation in which the device is turned on continuously. So it can be said that this is an exaggerated claim. In most cases, it is recommended to choose for alkaline batteries, because they go along considerably longer. The capacity of a modern alkaline AA battery lies between 2.600 and 2.800 mAh, while a zinc-carbon AA battery has a capacity of approximately 1.000 mAh.
