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

How works[]

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

Example[]

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