Battery Makers

  • M. H. Beck


Batteries are of many different types, but they all produce an electric current via a circuit using a positive electrode, a negative electrode and an electrolyte acting as an ionic conductor. If the electrolyte is liquid, the battery is called ‘wef and if it is a powder or paste it is called ‘dry’. Some batteries are re-chargeable.
