AAA batteries are used for both low-drain and high-drain devices. Low-drain devices would include remote controls and flashlights, and high-drain devices would include electronic items such as digital cameras. In the past, batteries had a brief life expectancy and there was only one basic type of each size from a few different brands. Today, AAA batteries come in many different brands and types that include an extended-life version of the typical battery and the more modern, rechargeable battery.
