If we strip away the glittery labels and marketing hype, all a battery contains are two electrodes made of compatible conductive materials.
In their simplest form, batteries are two different metals that exchange ions via an electrolyte that functions as a separator.
Batteries are stores of energy that become electricity when we release it. This amount of energy is tiny when we compare it to the grid.
Button batteries, sometimes known as penny ones, are among the smartest, cleverest devices in the battery world.
Alessandro Volta made the world’s first battery in 1791. We don’t know why he piled alternating copper and zinc disks atop each other.
Electrodes are a special class of electrical conductors. Because they are able to contact a non-metallic part of a circuit, and so complete it.
The race is on to discover better batteries for electronic devices. Batteries that will charge faster, discharge slower
It sometimes seems as if our colleagues in the lithium industry emptied out their bathroom cabinets. Then they broke the contents into their constituents to see if they could build batteries
Garnet gemstones are a group of silicate minerals with a famous pedigree. First, their ruby glow attracted jewelers. Then woodworkers began applying a final finish to bare wood with garnet paper
Film capacitors are functionally similar to ceramic capacitors because they are both non-polarized. We can connect them either way around in a direct current environment.
