A battery is something that stores electrical energy. There are two types of batteries: rechargeable batteries and non-rechargeable batteries.

Rechargeable batteries include lead-acid batteries, nickel-metal hydride batteries, lithium-ion batteries, and all-solid-state batteries. Most batteries store charge through electrochemical action. Therefore, misuse such as over-charging, over-discharging, short-circuiting or physical damage can lead to ignition or explosion.
