A battery is an electrochemical device which stores energy in a chemically bonded structure and releases the energy in the form of electrons resulting from the battery’s chemical discharge reactions. Charging the battery provides the electrons to reform the chemical bonds which are stored in the battery’s active materials.
Batteries in General
The British company Chloride introduced in the 60es the so-called High performance Plantè battery followed by the other European companies. In Germany the type was called GroE. The cell was characterized by still the Plantè plate for the positive, but a flat plate with a PbSb alloy for the negative. The strap and the pillars were also made in a PbSb alloy.
