The present era in communication is the era of VANET which simply represents the communication between fast moving vehicles. The VANET is expanding day by day from planes to higher altitude, from metropolitan to towns etc. At higher altitude the performance of VANET becomes prime area of consideration. Because power consumption is more due to average QoS (Quality of Service). Everyday days new functions like gaming, internet, audios, videos, credit card functions etc. are being introduced leading to fast CPU clock speed hence more battery consumption. Since energy conservation is main focus now days therefore in this paper we studied and compared various battery models for residual battery capacity taking Bellman Ford ad hoc routing protocol in to consideration along with various VANET parameters like nodes, speed, altitude, area etc. in real traffic scenario. The battery models Duracell AA(MX-1500), Duracell AAA(MN-2400), Duracell AAA(MX-2400), Duracell C-MN(MN-1400) are compared in hilly scenario using Qualnet as a simulation tool taking nearly equal real scenarios after a frequent study of that region. The performance of various battery models for residual battery capacity is compared so that right battery model shall be chosen in hilly VANET. Varying parameters of VANET shows that in the real traffic scenarios battery models AA (MX-1500) and C-MN (MN-1400) performs more efficiently for energy conservation.
