For same size and weight, will alkaline batteries last longer or shorter than lithium ion recharageable batteries?
I am not just talking about new batteries here. When I use lithium rechargeables I notice that they seem to quickly degrade and last for a lot less time than they did when they were new, so I am asking about typical time, in other words, after the device has been used for at least 3 months and been recharged at least 20 times.
For example, let's say I have a walkie-talkie with a rechargeable lithium ion battery. I use it for 3 months and recharge it 20 times. Will the device last longer, as long, or less long, than if it had the same weight of alkaline disposable batteries?
