Without doubt the most popular type of fireworks for consumer use are multishot batteries. Also known as cakes or barrages, batteries consist of a number of individual tubes fastened together and internally fused so that all fire from a single point of ignition. Each tube ejects an effect high into the air, which is known as a shot. Batteries are relatively easy to set up and this, combined with the potential duration and ease of ignition, means they form the backbone of most displays, providing continuity and of course spectacular effects.
