An electrochemical cell is a device used for generating an electromotive force (voltage) and current from chemical reactions.

How worksEdit

The current is caused by the reactions releasing and accepting electrons at the different ends of a conductor.


A common example of an electrochemical cell is a standard 1.5-volt battery.
