Technically, a cell is the basic electrochemical unit that generates or stores electrical energy. Simply put, a Cell is a single unit. When two or more electrochemical cells are electrically interconnected in an appropriate series/parallel arrangement
to provide the required operating voltage and current levels it becomes a battery. Again simply put, when two or more cells are connected, they form a Battery. Under common usage, the term "battery" is often also applied to a single
The electrode in an electrochemical cell where oxidation takes place. During discharge, the negative electrode of the cell is the anode. During charge, the situation reverses and the positive electrode of the cell is the anode.
Batteries can be classified into PRIMARY (Non-rechargeable) SECONDARY (Rechargeable) & PHYSICAL
- Zinc-carbon, Alkaline and Silver Oxide
- Lead acid and Nickel Cadmium varieties
- Solar Powered Cells
NIPPO batteries are popularly used in Torch Lights, Transistors, Radio, Tape Recorders, Cameras and Camera Flashes, Personal Stereos, Quartz Wall Clock, Calculators, Remote Controls of TV, Battery Powered Toys, Hearing Aids, etc.,
