Vehicles have come a long way over the course of history. The car
battery has also changed over the years; however it may not have
changed as much as you think. Batteries have actually been around
for quite some time. The oldest batteries date way back to around
250 B.C. In present day Iraq, these batteries could have been used
for medicine, or for electroplating.
Dry Cell Battery
In the 1790’s, the first dry cell battery was introduced by the Italian
Alessandro Volta. He was able to produce a positive charge using
silver and a negative charge using zinc. The plates he used
containing these elements produced electricity. Alessandro Volta is
where the word “volt” came from.
Wet Cell Batteries
Lead acid batteries have been around since the 1860’s. It was
introduced in France by Georges Leclanche and was the world’s first
rechargeable battery. He did this by crushing manganese dioxide
and carbon to make a positive charge, and zinc to make a negative
charge. Over the years, constant improvements have been made,
and around the world, this is still the most commonly used battery
Today, some of the vehicles on the road are electric vehicles. This
means that instead of using gasoline, they are powered with
recharging stations. Lithium ion batteries are a common type of
battery used in these cars. The lithium ion battery is quite a bit
newer in comparison to the other batteries mentioned, with it not
being made available commercially until the 1970’s.
