Off Grid Power Systems III – Lead Acid Batteries

After discussing some properties of electricity and common methods to generate it, it is time to talk about how it can be stored. There are different types and designs of rechargeable batteries. This article is about deep cycle lead acid batteries. The principle difference between deep cycle lead acid batteries and those that are used in almost every car is the geometry of the electrodes. The former is designed to provide a small current over a long period (hours), while the latter to provide a large current for a short period (seconds).
