The amount of hits this post gets is way more than anything else on the blog. Most of us deal with re-chargeable batteries every day so I though I will do my bi-yearly post again on batteries.

One would think you can google easily for battery technologies but a search for “rechargeable batteries” using startpage that anonymizes google searches gives besides wikipedia only sites that sell batteries.

So here are a few useful links to technical info on battery technologies:

  • My favourite – Battery University
  • Victron manufactures high quality backup power equipment. To learn all that you will ever need to know about lead acid batteries download the book “Energy Unlimited” at Victron – General Technical Information

Very few of these devices do not use Lithium-ion or Lithium-polymer batteries. To find out more about them see Lithium Based Batteries. You may also want to read Protection Circuits and then think twice about buying that cheap cell phone charger from the guy at the traffic lights.
  • Just to show I’m not joking watch this:
