Rechargeable Batteries Applications Handbook

Book Description

Represents the first widely available compendium of the information needed by those design professionals responsible for using rechargeable batteries. This handbook introduces the most common forms of rechargeable batteries, including their history, the basic chemistry that governs their operation, and common design approaches. The introduction also exposes reader to common battery design terms and concepts.

Two sections of the handbook provide performance information on two principal types of rechargeable batteries commonly found in consumer and industrial products: sealed nickel-cadmium and sealed-lead cells. For each type of cell, this book covers discharge performance, charging and charger design, storage, life, applications information, testing, and safety.
