Abstract

Secondary batteries, often called rechargeable batteries, can be used, discharged, and then restored to their original condition by reversing the current flow (charging). Rechargeable batteries are commonly used to power a personal digital assistant, mobile telephone, or notebook computer as well as to start a car. They have become a part of daily life. This article provides an insight into how these batteries work. The basic elements and principal characteristics of rechargeable batteries are discussed along with a comparison of the energy storage capability of common rechargeable battery systems.
