Electrolysis is the process by which an electric current is used for an otherwise non-spontaneous reaction. Although electrolyzer is frequently used in the production of hydrogen by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen, there are various other applications of electrolysis in the production of difficult metals, elements, chemical compounds, and organic compounds.
Electrolyzers are used in the production of rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries regain their cell potential by the process called reversible cell reactions. Sulphuric acid is commonly used as an electrolyte in rechargeable batteries. They can be charged and discharged numerous times. There are a different variety of batteries for different applications
