How to Replace the Lamp in Refrigerator
All emergency lights use a battery to power the lamps to ensure continuous availability of the device. These batteries are rechargeable and can be of two types: Hermetic lead batteries (similar to those used in cars), nickel-cadmium batteries and sealed lead acid batteries; These are the oldest rechargeable batteries available today.
