There are different methods for classifying batteries, and their classification methods can be roughly divided into three categories.
Divided by type of electrolyte:
Alkaline batteries, electrolytes mainly based on potassium hydroxide fire solution: such as: alkaline zinc manganese batteries (commonly known as alkaline manganese batteries or alkaline batteries), nickel-cadmium batteries, nickel-metal hydride batteries. Acidic battery, mainly using sulfuric acid aqueous solution as medium, such as zinc-manganese dry battery (some consumers also call it acid battery), seawater battery, etc.; organic electrolyte battery, mainly using organic solution as medium, such as lithium battery, lithium Ion battery, etc.
Divided by nature of work and storage:
A primary battery, also known as a primary battery, that is, a battery that cannot be recharged, such as a zinc-manganese dry battery, a lithium primary battery, etc.; a secondary battery, which can be a rechargeable battery, such as a nickel-hydrogen battery, a lithium-ion battery, a nickel-cadmium battery, etc.; The upper lead-acid battery is also a secondary battery; the fuel cell, that is, the active material is continuously added to the battery from the outside when the battery is working, such as a hydrogen-oxygen fuel cell; the storage battery, that is, the battery is not directly in contact with the electrolyte during storage; The electrolyte is not added until the battery is used, such as a magnesium carbide battery, also known as a seawater battery.
According to the positive and negative materials used in the battery:
Zinc series batteries, such as zinc-manganese batteries, zinc-silver batteries, etc.; nickel series batteries, such as cadmium-nickel batteries, hydrogen-nickel batteries, etc.: lead series batteries, such as lead-acid batteries; lithium-ion batteries, lithium-manganese batteries; manganese dioxide series Batteries, such as zinc-manganese batteries, alkaline manganese batteries, etc.; air (oxygen) series batteries, such as zinc-air batteries.
