Excerpt from Storage Batteries: The Chemistry and Physics of the Lead Accumulator

1. Into our present age of power, where we reckon by thousands and tens of thousands of kilowatts, there has come down from a previous era one single form of the galvanic cell which retains sufficient commercial importance to be worth consideration in connection with modern power plants and modern power operation. This is the lead-sulphuric acid accumulator. It was invented and perfected in the heyday of galvanic cells - at a time before the dynamo and the electric motor had any technical importance. In our own laboratory, hidden away in the attic where cast-off things are stored, lie the remains of the big Bunsen cells which were once the source of our heaviest currents and with which the remarkable phenomena of current electricity were shown to classes and in public lectures in those days.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Storage Batteries: The Chemistry and Physics of the Lead Accumulator These early Plante batteries were so arranged that they could be easily thrown into parallel connection, and in this way they could be charged from the Bunsen battery of a few large cells. We still use one of these batteries of 20 cells, dating from the early eighties or earlier. After charge was com plete the simple mechanism permitted all the cells of the set to be connected in series by simply turn ing the handle through and clips were provided to show the melting of wires of various metals by the current. The current which could be drawn from these small sets of storage cells reached its maximum at forty or fifty amperes - an enormous value then, a mere bagatelle now, for we have electrolytic cells and electric furnaces which require tens of thou sands of amperes for their operation. Since then lead cells have grown in size along with everything else electrical, and I have seen large batteries which can furnish thirty or forty thousand amperes for a short time and ten thousand for several minutes of discharge.
