Definitions for "STORAGE BATTERY"
a voltaic battery that stores electric charge
a battery that can be discharged and recharged over a number of cycles
An assembly of identical cells in which the electrochemical action is reversible so that the battery may be recharged by passing a current through the cells in the opposite direction to that of discharge. While many non-storage batteries have a reversible process, only those that are economically rechargeable are classified as storage batteries. Synonym: Accumulator; Secondary Battery. See Secondary Cell.
