Sorry to say, but batteries aren't anything like capacitors. The two "capacitors" in your equivalent circuit diagram are just representations of a half-cell. In a formal definition, a battery is a combination of multiple chemical cells in series. The cells are represented as two parallel lines because they're often manufactured as layers of different ...

The two parallel lines of different length are called "batteries" and they're supposed to provide the circuit with a constant voltage for a long time. They're similar in effect to high-capacity capacitors which are charged to a very high charge that is constant, and so is the voltage. Except that normal capacitors are not that strong. Moreover, capacitors ...
