The humble Lead Acid battery was

invented way back in 1859 by French physicist Gaston Plante and is the oldest

type of rechargeable battery.

Batteries are made up of cells. A

cell consists of negative and positive Lead plates immersed in an electrolyte

(solution of sulphuric acid and water). A Lead Acid cell produces 2V and 6

cells are commonly linked in series to provide 12V.

Over the years advances have been

made in plate design and construction. Sealed batteries have become very

popular as batteries tend to be hidden away making maintenance difficult.
