At least that's the way I've always thought it worked. Correct me if I'm wrong.

This is correct. Double acting, as its name indicates, acts twice. Once with the addition of a liquid and again with the application of heat.

No batter with baking powder (either type) can be mixed for use the next day and produce successful results.
