Voltage-capacity relation discharging an alkaline AAA battery? Answered
Let's say I have a fresh alkaline AAA battery, 1.5V, 1200mAh. Also, let's say it discharges itself with 3% per year, just lying in the shelf.
After one year, has both voltage and capacity been reduced 3%, or just the voltage? If not, how much has the capacity dropped then?
I also wonder if the battery is being discharged the same way, when in use? E.e. is the proportion between voltage drop and capacity drop the same on the shelf while in use?
