FAQ for consumers

  • What is a battery and how does it work?

    The first battery was invented by Alessadro Volta in 1800 and since then batteries have become a key power source for many household and industrial applications.
    A battery is consisted of one or more electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy, through the production and flow of electrons.

    • Primary batteries which are for single use and
    • Secondary (or rechargeable) batteries which are for repeated use.
  • Can I recharge all batteries?

    No, you should only recharge secondary batteries that have a “Rechargeable” indication.

  • Why batteries do not have the same life expectancy and power output?
