Devices that convert stored energy into electrical current; the two main types are chemical batteries and physical batteries such as solar cells, nuclear energy and thermal batteries.
Industrial batteries translate chemical energy into electricity.
Battery chargers are devices for charging rechargeable batteries.
Battery holders are designed to support commercial, industrial or OEM batteries.
Battery packs are constructed from two or more individual cells or batteries. There are two basic types of battery packs: primary and secondary or rechargeable.
Disposable primary batteries are replaced once the energy supply is depleted. Their energy is produced when the materials within the battery react and are exhausted.
Battery, fuel cell and solar test equipment consists of specialized test stations, stands or systems, monitors and component modules for performance or endurance testing.
Lead acid batteries are made up of plates, lead, and lead oxide with a 35% sulfuric acid and 65% water electrolyte solution.
Lithium batteries have a lithium anode. They are available as both primary batteries and secondary batteries.
Rechargeable batteries or secondary batteries contain active materials that can be regenerated by charging. When the energy produced by rechargeable batteries drops below optimum efficiency, secondary batteries may be recharged in a couple of ways, depending upon their construction.
Reserve batteries are designed to retain their charge during long storage periods. The electrolyte is kept separate from the rest of battery to avoid self-discharge.
