Factors Affecting Lead Acid Battery Life

A storage battery can have a relatively long life. Some lead acid batteries may operate efficiently for around 20 years or more, provided all conditions of operation are ideal. Such conditions are not usually obtainable. The end of battery life may result from either loss of active material, lack of contact of active material with … Read more

Sulphation and Buckling in Lead Acid Battery

What is Sulphation? Sulphation in Lead Acid Battery refers to the formation of Lead Sulphate (PbSO4) on the plates of battery. For better understanding of Sulphation, let us first consider the chemical reaction taking place in the lead acid battery. In lead acid battery, lead dioxide (PbO2) acts as a positive plate and lead (Pb) … Read more
