The Lead-Acid battery which is one of the oldest rechargeable battery. It was invented in the year 1859, which was the first rechargeable battery to use commercially. It’s used in cars, Wheelchairs, scooters, UPS Systems, and golf carts. The new batteries were expensive in comparison to the lead-acid battery.
Can Lead-acid battery compete in modern times?
Well, the answer would be yes. It doesn’t lend to charge fast. It takes 8-16 hours for the setting. A fully saturated charge is needed to prevent the cause of sulfation, and the battery required to remain soggy.
It has a critical charge voltage limit. A higher voltage of 2.40V/cell leads to a good battery performance by decreasing the service life due to the grid corrosion on the positive plate but a low voltage limit head to the sulfation on the negative scale. So, leaving the battery on the float charge for a prolonged time does not harm the battery.
If we look to the Batterie FIAMM, Batteria AGM fiamm optimizes internal gas recombination with free maintenance. It is non-spillable, non-hazardous for transportation, and can be recycled.
Advantages of the Lead Batteries
- Inexpensive and simple for manufacturing.
- Self-discharge among the lowest in the rechargeable battery system.
- Mature and reliable- if used efficiently, it provides a service for a considerable duration.
- Capable of the high discharge rates.
So these features make it usable even in modern times. It’s still used in cars and other materials, and it cannot be replaced either and cannot replace even after 150 years we still prefer using it.
