What are batteries?

batteres in boxWhat are batteries? What is their purpose? According to Northwestern University, “A battery can change chemical energy to electricity by putting certain chemicals in contact with each other in a specific way". Batteries utilize the electricity converted to power items such as lights, television remotes, and even cars. There are three main components of a battery, which consist of the anode, known as its negative side, the cathode, known as its positive side, and electrolytes. These segments of the battery keep the flow of electricity through the chemical means of its conversion, with the help of electrons. 

The first battery was invented by the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta in the year 1800. This “Voltaic Pile “ was created using discs of copper and zinc, and wet cardboard, producing an electrical current. This was the first “wet cell battery ." Then, in 1836, John F. Daniell invented the Daniell Cell. It lasted longer than the voltaic pile, using copper sulfate and zinc sulfate. It continued to be used within homes for over one hundred years. In 1949, the Alkaline-Manganese battery developed by Lew Urry, which is what is commonly used today.1

Sealed Lead Acid "SLA" "AGM" "GEL" Gelled Electrolyte

Deep Cycle sealed Batteries are also known as SLA batteries which first came out in the early 1980’s. Sealed lead acid batteries are utilized for wide variety of applications including vehicular electronics, UPS and computer systems, wheelchairs, scooters, industrial and medical equipment and more. All SLA batteries have three common traits: internal pressure regulation through valve construction, immobilized electrolytes and oxygen recombination.

AGM Batteries are the most common type of SLA batteries in the market. In an AGM battery, the electrolyte is immobilized in a porous and absorbent microfiber glass mat. This mat is wrapped around the plates in the battery and facilitates the chemical reaction that creates the energy in the battery. AGM batteries can be designed to offer unique discharge characteristics to meet deep discharge, fast discharge or slow discharge needs.
