Electricity and batteries go hand in hand with electrochemistry and physics. These topics keep over 10,000 scientists busy at Argonne National Laboratory.
‘Science’ is a systematic approach for establishing, and testing knowledge about the universal world around us.
A multi meter is a simple, inexpensive device for testing circuit continuity, and measuring voltage and resistance.
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.
Solar charge controllers have the job of charging batteries correctly. Also known as solar charge regulators, they make sure the right amount of electricity goes to batteries.
Just about every electronic device contains a transformer. Transformers convert the standard voltage from the wall outlet into the lower voltages required by the electronic device. One of the important materials they consist of is electrical steel. Researchers have found a way to improve the performance of electrical steel and manufacture it more efficiently, […]
A voltage divider is one of the basic circuits used in electrical engineering. This is an important concept especially when more complex circuits are to be created. It allows engineers to analyze resistance and to optimize electronic devices. This circuit is one of the important applications of Ohm’s Law. To give you a bit of […]
The term Cut-off Voltage is activated voltage level at which the charge controller ( a voltage and/or current regulator) disconnects the load from the battery. The battery’s cut-off voltage is determined by the manufacturer, so that consumers can achieve the maximum capacity of their batteries. The cut-off voltage depends on the type of battery under use […]
