Lead Acid Batteries: Functioning, Safety, and Maintenance

Lead acid batteries were the first form of rechargeable battery which are still used today. As we learned in history of batteries; lead acid batteries were developed in 1859 by Gaston Plante. This battery type is still used today in many industries, especially popular as car batteries, but also commonly used in photovoltaic systems. Compared… Read More »

Graphene Battery Applications

Graphene based nano materials have many potential applications in energy related areas, especially in the energy storage application. The following are the some of the reasons why graphene is useful in multiple ways. graphene improves both energy capacity and charge rate in batteries activated graphene makes superior super capacitors for energy storage graphene electrodes may… Read More »

Magnesium Battery Pros and Cons

Although magnesium battery is becoming less popular as compared to lithium batteries, still we need to understand the usage of magnesium batteries. In these type of batteries, anode is made up of magnesium because of its high standard potential. Magnesium is a light metal, easily available and having low cost. Magnesium/manganese dioxide (Mg/MnO2) battery has… Read More »

mAh full form and mAh meaning in battery capacity calculation

mAh full form is milli Ampere hour, which means how much amperes of current a battery can deliver in an hour time. The battery mAh capacity rating refers to the storage capacity available for a particular battery especially for rechargeable batteries. For example battery with a capacity rating of 1800 mAh could deliver a current… Read More »

Alkaline Battery Evolution Construction & Usage

In new era, alkaline battery is one of the most important and most useful equipment. Normally battery is used where power supply is not regular and where low voltage is required (i.e. lower than supply voltage). Watches, mobiles and many other small equipment’s that require lesser voltage, mainly run on battery. The main advantage of battery is, they can be charged… Read More »

Working Principle of Battery

If we are willing to understand the basic principle of battery properly, first, we should have some basic concept of electrolytes and electron affinity. Actually, when two dissimilar metals or metallic compounds are immersed in an electrolyte, there will be a potential difference produced between these metals or metallic compounds. Hence causing the flow of current which is… Read More »
