Technical information on lead-acid batteries

At first sight a battery is just a box delivering electric power. Thanks to the technical advances in the battery industrie, for most battery owners that is all they need to know. If a battery is properly dimensioned and maintained, you may truly 'fit & forget'.

However, he that has a more demanding application will soon be initiated into the complexity of the phenomenon battery, with interfaces in electrical engineering, chemistry and metallurgy. And might soon get confused by half-truths and whole falsehoods. Those users will hugely benefit from deeper insight in the workings of the storage battery.

On these pages we will address the most common problems the battery owner might encounter.
