There are two major binary types of battery. The concentric circle is one, while the rows of amperes are the other. Most suns, planets, and humans are concentric circles with layering waves forming around a magnetically paired interior [meta]source. They have field effects and amperage.
A second type of battery is the amperage parallel battery. This is a series of individual current layers or wire stems all lined up in parallel. They do not necessarily need to be touching or in a circuit to be formed in parallel. They can operate by field rather than signal, although they could also be wired in other ways, like an Internet. Groups of people and principles field together to form societies and movements.
