Lead acid batteries were invented by French physicist Gaston Planté, and have been around since 1859. These are the oldest kind of rechargeable battery and even though they offer a very low ratio of energy-to weight ratio as well as a low energy-to-volume ratio, they are able to supply high currents which results in cells having a relatively large power-to weight ratio.
Lead acid batteries have changed very little over the years although there have been certain upgrades and improvements in the way they are manufactured over time.
Advancements continue to improve in energy density as well as the life of batteries and dependability.
All lead acid batteries have flat lead plates that are submerged in a pool of electrolytes and the regular addition of water is needed for most of these batteries. In today’s modern world lead-acid batteries are basically low-maintenance which are manufactured with excess electrolyte calculations to make up for any water loss during the life of the battery.
Perhaps the most important aspect of lead acid batteries lies in the recharging of these batteries – a converter/charger with single output voltage will certainly not charge the battery correctly.
Correct and proper charging as well as the correct maintenance of lead acid batteries requires intelligent charging system that will take care of battery issues and reduce the maintenance of your lead acid battery.
