Why can't we store AC in batteries instead of DC ?

Answer :

Because the direction of the current changes in AC electricity, you cannot directly store the power. Placing a capacitor in an AC circuit has no effect on the alternating flow of the electricity. The only ... is indirectly, by storing DC and then using a power inverter to convert the DC to AC.
