Want to learn more about the Energizer ER-P513 Battery?
The Energizer ER-P513 battery is a cordless telephone battery used in over 700 different Panasonic, AT&T, Motorola, Uniden and V-Tech cordless telephones.
We have provided additional information below regarding the Energizer ER-P513 battery so you will have the knowledge you need to make an informed buying decision when buying a replacement Energizer ER-P513 battery pack for your telephone.
What are the specifications of the Energizer ER-P513 battery Pack?
Most Energizer ERP513 batteries are rated at 2.4 volts and 1500 mAh (Mili-Amp Hours). That is a powerful battery pack with some real capacity that will enable longer talk times and more standby time for your cordless telephone. Sometimes you will see higher or lower mAh ratings. The mAh number is the measurement of the "capacity" of your ER-P513 battery pack. The higher the Mili-Amp Hour rating, the longer your run time. For example, a 1000 mAh cordless phone battery will give you twice as such talk time when compared to a 500 mAh (half of 1000) battery pack.
What is the typical useful life of a Energizer ER-P513 Battery Pack?
Most consumers get between 3 to 5 years of service out of their Energizer ER-P513 phone battery before needing to replace it. This lifespan, of course, absolutely depends on individual patterns of usage. If you are a "real big talker" - you will get less life from the battery...
But I thought Energizer ER-P513 batteries were rechargeable. Why do they wear out?
True, the Energizer ERP513 battery is rechargeable. But alas, we still have not invented a perfect battery and since there is no such thing as a perpetual motion machine, the Energizer ER-P513 will eventually need to be replaced. You see each time you charge and discharge your Energizer ER-P513 battery, a chemical reaction occurs to store or release the electricity to power your cordless telephone. Part of that chemical reaction uses a tiny portion of the NiMh chemistry in your Energizer ER-P513 battery pack. Eventually those chemicals are depleted and your battery goes "dead".
My Energizer ER-P513 battery has a black wrapper. I see different colored telephone batteries available. Is that ok?
Yes, several different companies manufacture and market their own version of the Energizer ER-P513 battery design to consumers. Many times these other battery manufacturers use different colored plastic shrink wrap as part of their own marketing and "branding" efforts. We have seen green, red, yellow and tan to name a few! Thankfully, the color of your Energizer ER-P513 plastic battery wrapping is unimportant. It is very important that the form factor (size), polarity (orientation of the positive and negative contacts) and of course the voltage of your ERP513 are exactly the same.
How do I make certain I'm getting a quality replacement Energizer ER-P513 battery pack?
Here is where you have to use some common sense and be a careful shopper. You can find websites selling their version of an ER-P513 battery at prices from $7.95 to $24.99 for what looks like "the same" (in the pictures at least) Energizer ERP513 battery. Our experience indicates that it is true that you usually do "get what you pay for". In this particular example, there is definitely something wrong with the two extremes. Certainly $21.95 is way too much to pay for a Energizer ER-P513 battery. Somebody is just trying to make a lot of money! And in most cases, $8.95 is just too good to be true. We get concerned about the quality of the materials (battery cells), safety features, and quality control process to insure the correct precision fit and finish of the ER-P513 battery. One has to wonder - is it a brand new ER-P513? unfortunately there is a lot of junk out there on the internet and probably some "refurbished" or damaged goods out there at some of those low ball prices. In addition many of these low teaser rates do not include shipping or handling charges. Oftentimes that "$8.95" Energizer ER-P513 cordless phone battery ends up being $16.99 or more after the hidden shipping and handling charges are added. So make sure you are looking at the final whole price of these "bargains".
