Lead-Based Batteries

Lead-Based Batteries

The History of the Battery Although there is evidence of electrochemical cells dating back to 2000 years ago, the story of the first true battery starts with an Italian physicist by the name of Alessandro Volta. In 1800 Volta created the first battery based on pairs of copper and zinc discs, the Voltaic Pile. It was with the invention in 1836 of the Daniell Cell, which consisted of a copper pot filled with a copper sulphate solution, that batteries would be made that could deliver a reliable current and be put to industrial use. The first rechargeable battery, or secondary cell, was a lead-acid cell battery invented in 1859 by the French inventor Gaston Planté, whose work laid the foundation for the modern lead-based battery industry. The first practical lead-acid battery was developed by Henri Tudor in 1886 and was manufactured first in Luxembourg and then in Belgium, France, Germany and the United Kingdom. Since then there has been steady improvement of this battery technology in parallel with other technologies such as the first dry cell (a battery with a non-liquid electrolyte), the zinc-carbon battery, in 1887, the nickel-cadmium battery in 1899, the nickel-iron battery in 1903, the nickel hydrogen battery in the early 1970s, nickel-metalhydride batteries in the late 1970s, and lithium and lithium-ion batteries since the late 1980s. Batteries Today Batteries come in all sizes, from personal batteries used to power MP3 players, toys, radios and smoke detectors, and rechargeable batteries in mobile phones, laptops and portable DVD players, to industrial and automotive batteries used to crank internal combustion engines in cars (starting, lighting and ignition, or... read more
