Basic Battery Power Faqs


I am kind of an Electric Battery Nut.  When I was a child in the 1950s and 60s battery toys were very expensive to run because the little motors they powered were power hogs and the batteries had very little output.  They ran through batteries very fast.   Battery technology and device technology has come a long ways in the last 50 years.  I like battery powered tools and toys. Here is a website about another one of my hobbies I love Cordless Power tools.

Here is a quote from Wikipedia with the definition of a Battery
In electricity, a battery is a device consisting of one or more electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy.[1] Since the invention of the first battery (or "voltaic pile") in 1800 by Alessandro Volta and especially since the technically improved Daniell cell in 1836, batteries have become a common power source for many household and industrial applications. According to a 2005 estimate, the worldwide battery industry generates US$48 billion in sales each year,[2] with 6% annual growth.[3] There are two types of batteries: primary batteries (disposable batteries), which are designed to be used once and discarded, and secondary batteries (rechargeable batteries), which are designed to be recharged and used multiple times. Batteries come in many sizes, from miniature cells used to power hearing aids and wristwatches to battery banks the size of rooms that provide standby power for telephone exchanges and computer data centers.
Here is a list of articles that I am working on.  I will build a link to the page when I have finished the article.

Magnetic Flashlights are kind of a unique combination but much like  Peanut butter and Chocolate magnets can make a flashlight much handier.  

Rechargeable vs disposable batteries
There are a lot of uses for disposable batteries where I do not recommend  rechargables.  If your battery is not going to have much of a load and is likely to last a year or more.  Then the extra money spent on rechargeable will not pay off.  Most nicad rechargeable do not have as much power as a disposable battery and the power output degrades fairly fast with nicad rechargeables.
