Lead Acid Battery

Lead acid batteries are the most commonly used rechargeable batteries today. Lead acid batteries were invented in 1859 by French physicist Gaston Planté. Lead acid Accumulators are the most commonly used rechargeable batteries today which represent the oldest design with one of the worst energy-to-weight ratios, although the power-to-weight ratio can be quite good. The energy-to-volume ratio of Lead acid batteries is good compared to other types of batteries.

 

Features of Lead Acid Batteries

 

  • Lead acid batteries are cheap and can supply high surge currents needed in starter motors. Every reasonably modern car uses a lead acid battery for this purpose.
  • Lead acid batteries for automotive use are not designed for deep discharge and should always be kept at maximum charge, using constant voltage at 13.8 V (for six element car batteries). Their capacity will severely suffer from deep cycling. Specially designed deep-cycle cells are much less susceptible to this problem, and are required for applications where the batteries are regularly discharged.
  • This lead-acid battery is the workhorse of the rechargeable battery systems.
  • Lead-acid car batteries consist of six cells of 2 V nominal voltages. Each cell contains (in the charged state) electrodes of lead metal (Pb) and lead (IV) peroxide (PbO2) in an electrolyte of about 37 % w/w sulfuric acid (H2SO4). Modern designs have gelified electrolytes. In the discharged state both electrodes turn into lead (II) sulfate and the electrolyte turns into water. (This is why discharged lead-acid batteries can freeze.)

 

The Lead Acid Battery Manufacturers produce Lead-Acid Battery. The Lead-Acid Battery Manufacturers are well known for manufacturing the single most used battery system worldwide.

 

There are many types of batteries which the manufacturers are manufacturing such as deep cycle batteries, sealed lead acid batteries, lithium ion batteries, nickel cadmium batteries, nickel metal hydride batteries, and other types of batteries are energy system batteries, electric vehicle batteries, marine batteries, telecommunication batteries, portable computer batteries, and other battery applications.
