Where was the first battery created?

The first electrochemical cell was developed by the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta in 1792, and in 1800 he invented the first "battery" which is the correct term for a number of cells. An AA "battery" is actually a "cell". When you put 2 AA cells into something (walkman for instance) it is caled a battery.
