A reduction reaction is usually used in combination of an oxidation reaction to result in an oxidation-reduction reaction or RedOx reaction.

Did you imagine your life without batteries?

Here is a video taking about RedOx reactions and their usefulness in electrochemistry and describing a galvanic cell.
