There is no parallel to the contribution of power and energy in the process of growth and development of our modern age. The rise of science and technology and its associated innovative inventions would have been impossible without the contribution of power and energy. Scientists and engineers always work tirelessly to better their yesterday’s laurels today.
In our contemporary world dominated by motor vehicles, smartphones, tablets, laptop computers, etc. the most significant invention has been the invention and advancements in the field of batteries.
What are the Batteries?
Batteries are portable power storing devices. They consist of cells and operate on the principle of chemical reaction which releases electricity aiding in powering the gadgets and devices they are intended for. Batteries are used in almost every electronic device around us from clocks, remotes, children’s toys, communication devices, etc.
What are the different types of batteries?
Batteries come in various shapes, sizes and compositions. The most common forms are household batteries categorized as CR123A battery, rechargeable batteries, car batteries, etc.
What are the different battery compositions?
The different compositions commonly used are Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd), Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), Lithium Polymer (Li-Po), Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) and Lead Acid batteries.
What are AA and AAA batteries?
AA and AAA refer to the size of the cell in any battery such as aa lithium batteries.
What is a universal battery charger?
The power stored inside the batteries is only for a limited period of time. Certain batteries can only be used only once while some can be re-used by recharging them using a universal battery charger.
What are the types of battery chargers?
There are different types of chargers which are commonly used for recharging any rechargeable battery of any size or composition. The different types of chargers used to recharge devices such as smartphones, laptops, cameras, tablets, etc are available in a wide range such overnight charger, rapid charger, household battery charger, and fast charger. There are certain chargers which are manufactured by manufacturers of batteries themselves and of course the universal battery charger which can recharge a wide range of batteries.
How does a battery charger recharge a battery?
Any battery charger such as a universal battery charger uses similar technology as that of the batteries to recharge most common form of batteries used in laptops, smartphones, tablets, cameras, etc. The technology utilized to recharge a battery is similar to the composition of batteries called a battery pack.
A battery pack is build using the same elements and technology that constitutes a battery and is infused with technological compositions such as voltage tap, charge state monitor, shielded notebook connector, voltage converter, and a regular circuit all which are designed for an efficient and safe recharging process of your batteries.
How long does a universal charger take to charge a battery on an average?
An overnight charger takes around 14-16 hours to recharge a battery, a rapid charger which is an intermediate charger between an overnight charger and a fast charger takes around 3-6 hours to recharge any empty batteries. The rapid charger recharges the worn-out batteries in just almost one hour’s time. Any universal battery charger can take around 10 hours or so to completely recharge empty batteries.
