What is Battery?

A few electrically connected electrochemical cells placed in a special container and properly arranged to produce the necessary operating current and voltage. One cell can also be called a battery in case it functions as a complete electrochemical storage system. Chemical reactions taking place in a battery stimulate electrical power generation. There are two types of batteries: disposable and rechargeable (or secondary). In the latter, chemical reactions can be reversed by providing electrical energy.
