AC/DC: What's the Difference? In 1887 direct current (DC) was king.
rectifier, component of an electric circuit used to change alternating current to direct current. Rectifiers are made in various forms, all operating on the principle that current passes through them freely in one direction but only slightly or not at all in the opposite direction. One early type of rectifier was the diode electron tube electron tube, device consisting of a sealed enclosure in which electrons flow between electrodes separated either by a vacuum (in a vacuum tube) or by an ionized gas at low pressure (in a gas tube). .....
When you load a battery into an electronic device, you're not simply unleashing the electricity and sending it to do a task.
