"AAA battery" may also be an abbreviation for "antiaircraft artillery battery".

An AAA battery (pronounced "triple A") is 44.5 mm long and 10.5 mm in diameter, weighing around 11.5 grams. Output of alkaline batteries in this size is 1.5 volts, 900 to 1,155 mAh (3240 to 4158 coulombs). Modern nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries of this size can store about 800 mAh, with an output of 1.2 volts.

The battery is also classified as LR03 (IEC), 24A (ANSI/NEDA), R03, MN2400, AM4, UM4, HP16, or micro.

It is commonly used in small electronic devices, such as TV remote controls, MP3-Players and digital cameras. Devices that require the same power but a battery that has a greater life time usually choose the AA battery type.
