There's only one in the stock game.  And it's not rechargeable... it simply uses electricity to fling xenon out into space to provide thrust.  So you still need the xenon as propellant.  The batteries are rechargeable.

Let's add it doesn't use crossfeed rules to draw xenon (or electricity). So it will draw from tanks that are pretty much anywhere on the craft, just according to flow priority - similarly how RCS uses monoprop.
