A brief history of batteries

Date:Oct 22, 2019

For a long time, batteries have always been an important part of our daily lives. In 1800, the Italian physicist Alessandro Volta invented the world's first real battery. This invention is a significant breakthrough in the field of batteries, and since then battery technology has only a few major innovations.

The first major innovation was the lead-acid battery that was invented in 1859. This is the world's first rechargeable battery and is by far the most commonly used internal combustion engine starter battery.

In the past two centuries, there have been more or less innovative battery designs, but it was not until 1980 that a true game rule changer was invented. The breakthroughs at Oxford University and Stanford University led to the advent of lithium-ion batteries. In 1991, Sony commercialized the first lithium-ion battery.
