Definition: The battery which uses sponge lead and lead peroxide for the conversion of the chemical energy into electrical power, such type of battery is called a lead acid battery.
A lead storage battery, also known as a lead-acid battery, is the oldest type of rechargeable battery and one of the most common energy storage devices. Most people are accustomed to using them in vehicles, where they have the ability to provide high currents for cranking power.
Although the batteries are reliable, they have a limited life, are heavy to ship, and contain toxic materials that require specific removal methods at the end of their useful life. Lead-acid batteries have moderate power density and good response time. Depending on the power conversion technology incorporated, batteries can go from accepting energy to supplying energy instantaneously.
Lead-acid batteries are affected by temperature and must be maintained in order to achieve maximum life expectancy. The cells initially had low capacity. Each plate consists of a rectangular lead grid. The holes of the grid are filled with a paste of red lead and 33 percent dilute sulfuric acid. This porous paste allows the acid to react with the lead inside the plate, which increases the surface area.
Once dry, the plates are stacked with suitable separators and inserted into the battery container. An odd number of plates is usually used, with one more negative plate than positive. Each alternate plate is connected. The paste contains carbon black, barium sulfate, and lignosulfonate. The barium sulfate acts as a seed crystal for the lead-to-lead sulfate reaction. The lignosulfonate prevents the negative plate from forming a solid mass during the discharge cycle, and instead enables the formation of long needle-like crystals.
Carbon black counteracts the effect of inhibiting formation caused by the lignosulfonates. The electrolyte loses much of its dissolved sulfuric acid and becomes primarily water. The discharge process is driven by the conduction of electrons from the negative plate back into the cell at the positive plate in the external circuit.
This type of battery can be recharged. In the charged state, each cell contains negative plates of elemental lead Pb and positive plates of lead IV oxide PbO 2 in an electrolyte of approximately 4. The charging process is driven by the forcible removal of electrons from the positive plate and the forcible introduction of them to the negative plate by the charging source.

Key Points Lead-acid batteries, also known as lead storage batteries, can store a lot of charge and provide high current for short periods of time. Lead-acid batteries are capable of being recharged, which is important for their use in cars.
Discharging the stored energy relies on both the positive and negative plates becoming lead II sulfate and the electrolyte losing much of its dissolved sulfuric acid.

Grid-level large-scale electrical energy storage GLEES is an essential approach for balancing the supply—demand of electricity generation, distribution, and usage. Compared with conventional energy storage methods, battery technologies are desirable energy storage devices for GLEES due to their easy modularization, rapid response, flexible installation, and short construction cycles. In general, battery energy storage technologies are expected to meet the requirements of GLEES such as peak shaving and load leveling, voltage and frequency regulation, and emergency response, which are highlighted in this perspective. Furthermore, several types of battery technologies, including lead—acid, nickel—cadmium, nickel—metal hydride, sodium—sulfur, lithium-ion, and flow batteries, are discussed in detail for the application of GLEES. Moreover, some possible developing directions to facilitate efforts in this area are presented to establish a perspective on battery technology, provide a road map for guiding future studies, and promote the commercial application of batteries for GLEES.
All lead acid batteries consist of flat lead plates immersed in a pool of electrolyte. Regular water addition is required for most types of lead acid batteries although low-maintenance types come with excess electrolyte calculated to compensate for water loss during a normal lifetime. Lead acid batteries used in the RV and Marine Industries usually consist of two 6-volt batteries in series, or a single volt battery. These batteries are constructed of several single cells connected in series each cell produces approximately 2. A six-volt battery has three single cells, which when fully charged produce an output voltage of 6. A twelve-volt battery has six single cells in series producing a fully charged output voltage of A battery cell consists of two lead plates a positive plate covered with a paste of lead dioxide and a negative made of sponge lead, with an insulating material separator in between.
The battery which uses sponge lead and lead peroxide for the conversion of the chemical energy into electrical power, such type of battery is called a lead acid.
Despite having a very low energy-to-weight ratio and a low energy-to-volume ratio, its ability to supply high surge currents means that the cells have a relatively large power-to-weight ratio. These features, along with their low cost, make them attractive for use in motor vehicles to provide the high current required by starter motors. As they are inexpensive compared to newer technologies, lead—acid batteries are widely used even when surge current is not important and other designs could provide higher energy densities.
A lead acid battery consists of a negative electrode made of spongy or porous lead. The lead is porous to facilitate the formation and dissolution of lead. The positive electrode consists of lead oxide. Both electrodes are immersed in a electrolytic solution of sulfuric acid and water. In case the electrodes come into contact with each other through physical movement of the battery or through changes in thickness of the electrodes, an electrically insulating, but chemically permeable membrane separates the two electrodes.
Lead Acid Battery — The type of battery which uses lead peroxide and sponge lead for the conversion of the chemical energy into electrical energy, such type of the electric battery is called a lead acid battery. Because it has higher cell voltage and lower cost, the lead acid battery is most often used in power stations and substations.

Число возможных комбинаций приблизилось к 10 в 120-й степени - то есть к единице со 120 нулями. Определить ключ стало столь же математически нереально, как найти нужную песчинку на пляже длиной в три мили. Было подсчитано, что для успешной атаки на стандартный ключ самому быстрому компьютеру АНБ - секретнейшему Крей-Джозефсону II - потребуется более девятнадцати лет. К тому времени когда компьютер разгадает пароль и взломает шифр, информация, содержащаяся в послании, утратит всякую ценность.
В чем дело? - Беккер не рассчитывал, что все это займет так много времени, и теперь опаздывал на свой обычный субботний теннисный матч. Часовой пожал плечами.
У него никогда не возникало сомнений по поводу того, кто убьет Танкадо. Танкадо находился в Испании, а Испания - вотчина Халохота. Сорокадвухлетний португальский наемник был одним из лучших профессионалов, находящихся в его распоряжении. Он уже много лет работал на АНБ.
Беккер вытащил из вазы, стоявшей на столике в центре комнаты, розу и небрежно поднес ее к носу, потом резко повернулся к немцу, выпустив розу из рук.
