All the elements of the periodic table that can be used to make batteries

Batteries are stores of energy created by the interaction of different elements at the atomic level. Since the first battery was invented in 1799 using only copper and zinc, researchers have harnessed many other elements, each with its unique properties, for use in batteries. Some elements, like lithium and nickel, can be used to make many types of batteries. Others like, vanadium and cadmium, are, as of today, only used in one type of battery each. And the vast majority of elements, like the noble gases, don’t have the right chemical properties or, like silver and gold, are just too expensive to use in batteries. In the periodic table below, we’ve briefly described the important battery typ
