lead-acid batteries are an 18th century technology and thus may be said to be rather rudimentary. They have very poor power to size ratio, but on the up side of things can deliver enormous amounts of power for the starter motors of our vehicles. Join me next time when I talk about nickle metal hydride, nickle cadmium, as well as lithium based batteries.
