Battery is referring to a device for making or storing electricity chemically. Electricity is a form or energy that is easy to control, convenient to use but difficult to store.
A can of petrol contains 10,000 times the energy of a car battery. Hence the difficulty in making an electric car with a good performance. Technically, a battery consists of two or more series or parallel connected galvanic cells. Frequently, however, a single cell is called a battery.

Battery is a container, or group of containers, holding electrodes and an electrolyte for producing electric current by chemical reaction and storing energy. The individual containers are called "cells." Batteries produce direct current (DC).

Battery is referring to two or more electrochemical cells electrically interconnected in an appropriate series/parallel arrangement to provide the required operating voltage and current levels. Under common usage, the term "battery" is often also applied to a single cell.
