Defination:-Ever wondered why people with tooth fillings sometimes

complain of getting an electric shock like sensation while they nibble on to chocolates from the foil coating or from the silver on desserts? It is not just a fleeting sensation, but is actually a minor electric current tantalizing the nerves underneath the tooth. A momentary cell is formed between the foil and the amalgam of the tooth filling with the acidic saliva acting like the transport medium, the electrolyte. Types of Batteries 1. Primary Batteries: Non rechargeable batteries in which once the electrolyte has been fully used up, energy cannot be readily restored and the battery needs to be discarded. 2. Secondary Batteries: The batteries in which a reversible reaction is responsible for the generation of electricity such that they can be reverted back to the original reactant state fall under the category of secondary batteries. Recharging is effected by passing electric current through the battery. Starter Batteries which contain more number of finer lead plates are suited for cranking automobiles with a high surge and fast discharge. Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) Batteries have a matured technology and are used in places where long service life and economy amidst difficult environmental conditions is required. Lithium-ion Batteries are the most promising battery systems for portability in consumer products and electric power trains. Read More About :- Lithium Battery
