Heavy-duty industrial batteries in forklifts, mobile plant, and other industrial applications require topping up
Battery charging time is one of the greatest challenges facing the electric vehicle industry. Because motorists are accustomed to ‘recharging’ their fuel tanks in minutes.
Before we delve into the details of how to charge a lead-acid battery safely, we start with two precautions. In the first instance, we assume your charger and battery are in tip-top condition.
When a lead-acid battery leaves a production line, it is like a book without any words. True, the lead plates and electrodes are there
It is our fault as consumers that smartphone batteries go flat so soon. In the first instance, our vanity demands they be thin as possible which is impractical.
Details are still secret but we could be charging a car capacitor in seconds shortly and then driving it for 150 miles. This follows supercapacitor research by scientists at the universities of Surrey and Bristol in England.
It can be a career limiting move if your laptop suddenly dies on you in the middle of something. Trying to explain the fuel gauge showed 30% battery power available is no excuse.
Sodium-Ion batteries have long been stalwarts among basic batteries. Unlike lithium, we have an abundant supply of sodium salts. Sodium-Ion batteries drain down completely and ship in a stable state. By comparison, Lithium batteries must retain at least 30% of their charge.
It’s no secret that the batteries in electric vehicles still have some issues that need to be worked out, before they can be considered a viable option to replace fossil fuel burning vehicles. Currently, they take a long time to charge, the charge doesn’t last long enough for the vehicle to travel long distances, […]
North Carolina State University researchers have developed new software that estimates how much farther an electric vehicle can drive before needing to recharge. The new technology requires drivers to enter their destination, then the software automatically compiles the data on a host of variables to predict the energy use for the vehicle. […]
