 Battery current supply

Set up: I'm holding a 9-volt battery replacement ("wall wart") in my hand. Besides the output voltage, the label says 200 mA.

Question: I'm now holding a 9-volt battery in my hand, the rectangular kind you can buy anywhere. How much current is it good for?

Okay, what am I missing? What does the wall wart have to do with the battery? Are you asking the capacity of the battery or ultimate short circuit current capability?

Primary (disposable)
Typical capacity (mAh) Nominal voltage


NiCd ------------------120--------------7.2- 8.4 (some)
NiMH ------------------175-300----------7.2- 8.4 9.6
Lithium-ion polymer-----520---------------7.3-

Wal-warts are used to run equipment and have a built in reserve capacity to run the electronics and charging battery(s) at the same time.
9 volt batteries can produce several amps , but just for a fraction of a second.
finding out what the capacity of a battery is can only be found by the company data sheets.
The more load on the battery the shorter useful life of the battery.
Just remember this some wall-warts are AC in and AC out, while others are AC in and DC out
