Dynamic nature and mobility characteristics impose several challenges to MANET routing protocols working under different battery models. In this paper, the authors find variety of battery models for different application areas. Mobile ad hoc network nodes can be in any of states receive, transmit, idle and sleep mode. They consume energy in all these modes, which leads to depletion of finite energy and minimizes network lifetime. Many types of battery models are available in market for a variety of applications.
