The 9V Alkalisk alkaline battery is a fresh from the IKEA store standard alkaline battery produced in mid-November 2018 with expiry date in 5 years up to the end of 2023, so we expect to see good results from this battery. With alkaline batteries the closer to their production date they are the better capacity you can get out of them and with IKEA batteries selling out fast you can expect to get fresh ones with your visit to the store. You should still of course check the production and expiry date printed on the packaging and on the battery itself just to be sure though.

Our tests of 9V alkaline batteries are at a constant current discharge rate of 0.05A (50 milliamps) and we have managed to get surprisingly good result with 492 mAh for the 9V IKEA Alkalisk Alkaline Battery. This is the best result so far for 9V alkaline batteries we have tested so far in terms of usable capacity at our specific test conditions, so good job to IKEA with this one.

The performance of the 9V IKEA Alkalisk Alkaline batteries in our tests:

– 492 mAh at 0.05A load

– 3.744 Wh at 0.05A load

The LADDA brand of batteries is owned by IKEA and there are rumors that they are the same as the Eneloop Pro batteries, but much cheaper in terms of price and that is something that we do plan to check and confirm soon. After we make up to date tests of the latest Eneloop Pro products as our Eneloop XX AAA test data is already quite outdated. Do note that not all of the LADDA batteries are the same as some of them are made in China and others in Japan, like the 900 mAh AAA ones made in Japan is the same factory that apparently produces the low self discharge Eneloop batteries. These IKEA LADDA batteries are rated at 900 mAh typical capacity and they do seem to deliver a bit more according to our tests at lower loads making them get a good rating from us thanks to the low price you pay for them.

1.2V AAA 900 mAh LADDA NiMH batteries manage to deliver more than 900 mAh (their capacity rating) at lower current loads of 0.1A and 0.2A in our tests, going up to 0.5A load the capacity you get is still quite good, although a bit below the capacity rating. At 1.0A load which is over the battery capacity rating the usable capacity gets lower, but that is kind of to be expected. Overall very good results for the price you pay for these IKEA batteries, though probably they are best for low to mid-range loads.

The performance of the 1.2V AAA 900 mAh IKEA LADDA NiMH batteries in our tests:

– 926 mAh at 0.1A load
– 925 mAh at 0.2A load
– 863 mAh at 0.5A load
– 588 mAh at 1.0A load

– 1.153 Wh at 0.1A load
– 1.137 Wh at 0.2A load
– 1.013 Wh at 0.5A load
– 0.614 Wh at 1.0A load
