    Those terms are not really accurate in the context of a battery. A battery contains some mechanism (typically chemical) that creates a potential difference between the positive and negative terminals. When connected in a circuit, this potential difference drives the flow of charge but the battery itself does not carry any excess charge. In the case of a chemical battery, the reactants that interact with each other to produce the potential difference are eventually used up, at which time we say the battery is dead.
