...BATTERY By Department Summary The report discusses the lead-acid battery in detail. The structure,mode of operation and its thermal properties are discussed in detail. The advantages and disadvantages of the battery are also listed in comparison to other types of batteries. Introduction The lead acid battery has been in existence from as early as the 1859 by Gaston Plante. It was the first battery that was rechargeable. Initially, it was mainly used for lighting rail rods and train stations but it was developed for domestic usage (Glaize and Genies, 76). Lead acid batteries can be classified into three categories: starter, industrial and deep cycle batteries. Starter batteries are mainly... LEAD –ACID...
