AA batteries are some of the most popular battery types commonly used in a broad range of devices, tools, toys, and other applications.
While non-rechargeable AA batteries feature nominal voltage of more or less constant 1.5 volts, rechargeable AA batteries feature nominal voltage of 1.2 to 3.7 volts, and are offered in a large number of chemistries, raising various questions, among others, which rechargeable AA battery is compatible with non-rechargeable AA batteries?

1.5V lithium batteries are not as common as 3.0+ volts lithium batteries, but their popularity is increasing over time. The main advantages of 1.5V lithium batteries over zinc-carbon and alkaline batteries are improved capacity especially for high-discharge applications, extra-long shelf life (20+ years) due to the very low self-discharge rate, wider operating temperature range, somewhat lower weight, etc.
Lithium 1.5V batteries are mostly based on the LiFeS2 (Lithium Iron Disulfide) chemistry, although other versions are also possible, for example, Li-CuFeS2 (Lithium Copper Iron Disulfide).
Rechargeable Lithium-ion (3.7V) and Lithium Iron Phosphate (3.2V) batteries are offered with built-in DC-DC converters with a very constant 1.5V output voltage, making them directly compatible with Zinc-Carbon and Alkaline 1.5V batteries, but also featuring 1000+ charging/discharging cycles.

CR1616 battery is a lithium non-rechargeable 3.0V button/coin-cell battery, commonly used in remote controllers, car keys, credit size devices, wrist watches, as small CMOS batteries, etc.
CR1616 battery features several similar labels, all of which represent the same battery. However, there are also similar battery types that rely on different battery chemistries and having different characteristics, different enough to make them not interchangeable with CR1616 batteries.

Power inverters convert DC power from the batteries into DC/AC power, allowing the users to use home appliances, tools, and other AC devices when AC power is not present during emergencies, blackouts, or simply while being off the grid.
Lithium deep cycle batteries are almost ideal battery type for such application since they tolerate deep discharge applications, support a large number of charging/discharging cycles, are lightweight, can be easily recharged, etc.
