What is the difference between dry and wet batteries?

Answer:

A dry battery (or accumulator) is fully sealed and maintenance free. Whether you hold the battery straight or upside down, it always provides energy. A wet battery (or accumulator), however, contains a liquid (electrolyte), which eventuates if you don’t keep the battery in a straight position. Such batteries are often not fully closed/sealed and are not maintenance free. Nowadays, only batteries for industrial applications are made in wet version. The batteries meant for the consumer market are all made in the dry version.
