Battery connectors are what connect batteries to devices so the device can get power from the battery. Electricity is the flow of electrons, and a battery has to have a way for the electrons to leave (negative wire) and return (positive wire). Thus the terminals on the battery are what do this, and battery connectors in a device or vehicle are what carries the electricity to the device or vehicle so it can be used.

For instance, they electrically connect the battery to a laptop to power the computer.

Power connectors keep your electronics running! When the battery dies, you plug it in and it connects to your electric and charges.

When a car battery in connected to itself (i.e. You connect jumper cables onto a battery and then connect the other two connectors to each other), you create a continual circuit with the battery and nothing else. A similar effect is when you hold a 9 Volt battery to your tongue and you feel a small but continual "zap". Imagine this effect, but much greater. Sparks will appear when the connectors are first connected. Warning: Do not do this. This will damage your car battery. The only reason you should connect a car battery through jumper cables is to connect it to another car's battery in order to "jump" a car.
