In Common Words those batteries are rechargeable are known as secondary batteries.Secondary batteries & Cells are the rechargeable. They have the advantage of being more cost-efficient over the long term.
For the safe operation or safety purposes IEC ( International Electrotechnical Commission) Introduce the IEC 62133 ( for more info visit our website (www.itcindia.org ) the standard for Secondary cells and batteries containing alkaline or other non-acid electrolytes. This standard covers rechargeable Nickel cells and batteries, as well as lithium ion (Li-Ion) cells and batteries.
IEC 62133 is the most important standard for exporting Lithium-Ion batteries, including those used in IT equipment, tools, laboratory, household and medical equipment.
