Batteries are a collection of cells that have a chemical reaction that creates a flow of electrons in a circuit. The three main components of batteries include an anode ( - side), a cathode (+ side) and an electrolyte. Common types of batteries include Alkaline battery, Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) battery, Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery, Lead Acid battery, Zinc-Carbon battery, Lithium Ion battery and Lithium Polymer battery. Batteries are available in a wide range of varieties, with each type specially created for a function. Common functions include powering toys, clocks, radios, cameras, MP3 players, flash lights, servers, automotive, personal computers, laptops, wrist watches, and kitchen scales.

    Nickel Cadium (NiCd) batteries are rechargeable batteries which come in a variety of types including regular alkaline, reusable alkaline and Lithium. Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) batteries are used in electric vehicles, aircraft starting batteries, and standby power and are regulated by EU law.

  6. Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) Batteries
    - 5 Suppliers 24 Products

    Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries are one of the most common types of rechargeable batteries. They are popular due to the fact that have can be recharged at any time, without the need to wait for full draining. Types of Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries include regular alkaline, reusable alkaline and Lithium.

  7. Rechargeable Batteries
    - 1 Supplier 20 Products

    Rechargeable batteries can sometimes be used in place of a disposable battery making them a popular option for children’s toys; these are ideally charged with a smart battery charger that stops when the battery is ‘full’ so reducing the risk of overheating. Cordless power tools require specific batteries and chargers, although it is possible to purchase replacements separately. Car, laptop and mobile phones have built in rechargeable batteries which are charged either by plugging the device’s specific charger into the mains or, in the case of motor vehicles, by the engine.
