What is the difference between disposable (primary) and rechargeable (secondary) batteries?

Answer:

For both single and rechargeable batteries chemical reactions are created within the batteries system, which result in an electric current. The main difference is that rechargeable batteries can convert electrical energy, obtained form the outlet, into chemical energy, this can be done about a thousand times. The rechargeable battery is also called secondary battery (two-way energy); while a single battery in technical terms is called a primary battery.
