19 20 Part I: Fathoming the Fundamentals of Electronics The electrons keep flowing as long as the battery is connected in a circuit and the electrochemical reactions continue to take place. As the chemicals become depleted, fewer reactions take place, and the battery’s voltage starts to drop. Eventually, the battery can no longer generate electrical energy, and we say that the battery is flat or dead. Because the electrons move in only one direction (from the negative terminal, through the circuit, to the positive terminal), the electric current generated by a battery is DC.
In the list that follows, I sometimes specify a product code (identified by #) and price (as of this writing, in mid‐2015). I do this just to give you an idea of what to look for and roughly how much you should expect to pay. Because multiple options are usually available, feel free to shop around.
