How do rechargeable batteries differ from normal ones? Do said rechargeable batteries differ greatly in products like phones or vehicles?

the chemical rxn in rechargeable batteries is reversible while in non rechargeable batteries it is not.

Like what was said above I think non rechargeable batteries have reactions that are one way (irreversible) while rechargeable batteries contain reversible reactions.
The difference in products is that usually for stuff that needs a lot of power you would use rechargeable batteries and for stuff that doesn't need that much you could use disposable ones.

Rechargeable batteries use reversible chemical reactions. Chemical reactions used in non rechargeable batteries are irreversible when a current is passed in the reverse direction
