Battery is a device consisting of one or more electrochemical cells with external connections connected to energize the electrical devices. A battery has a cathode, and an anode. The name "battery" commonly denoted to a device composed of multiple cells, yet the procedure has advanced to additionally include devices consisting of a single cell. Batteries are categorized into primary and secondary types. Primary batteries such as alkaline battery, leclanché cell, lithium battery are irreversibly transforming chemical energy to electrical energy. When the power inside the reactants got exhausted, these batteries such as primary does not restore energy easily. Secondary batteries such as flow battery, fuel cell, lead acid battery etc. can be recharged; that is, they can reverse their chemical reactions by supplying electrical energy to the battery, by restoring their original composition.

The internal function of a battery are typically contained within a metal or plastic case. Under this metal there is a cathode, which connects to the positive terminal, and an anode, which connects to the negative terminal. These constituents, more generally known as electrodes, occupy most of the space in a battery and are placed where the chemical reactions occur. A partition creates a barrier between the cathode and anode, preventing the electrodes from moving while allowing electrical charge to flow freely between them. The medium that allows the electric charge to flow between the cathode and anode is known as the electrolyte. Finally, the collector conducts the charge to the outside of the battery and through the load.

Hydrogen which is the most abundant element in our earth’s crust can be generated from several resources like renewable and nuclear energy. It is considered to be same as that of electricity as a clean energy carrier.  It is an important carrier of energy in future and has a number of advantages as it has high efficiency, low polluting fuel, power generation and heating.  In order to separate the hydrogen from the other compounds the steam reforming is the technique which is least expensive for generating. The other method is electrolysis.

As it is easily made from the renewable resources it joins electricity as the important energy carrier in the future.

The mechanisms of the super capacitor are can be quickly charged and has very high density of power. It had a different storage mechanism and stores electrostatically on its surface and has no chemical reactions involved in it. The cost of a super capacitor exceeds that of the battery materials because of the supercapicitor materials such as graphene which is a high performing material. Both batteries and super capacitors are helpful in th future needs as the batteries ose by 5% where as the super capacitors by 50-60% of its charge.
