Have you ever wondered how a machine works? Some of them are operated by the electricity, but there are some machines who have no wire attach to them, but they still work. There are different types of batteries are involved in it. What actually happens is that batteries store the electric charge on it and it can be used easily after some time. Machines which do not have the batteries in them can’t store the electric charge and thus can’t be used in electricity shortfall. The best example of this is the search lights. They provide the light in the shortfall of electricity and after sometime, you can charge it again.
This does not mean that this cycle will continue like this for the whole life. The batteries used in the cell phones also have some capacity. With the passage of time, the capacity of the batteries also decreases. This means no it will store less amount of the charge. How to save our batteries from deteriorating? First, you have to understand the components of batteries.
· Storage tank:
The first thing that you will observe in a battery is the storage tank. It contains everything. This tank is usually made up of plastic to avoid wastage of ions. The specifications of the battery are mentioned on its tank. You can guess the capacity of the battery just by looking at the tank.
The main component that stores the electric charge inside the battery is the chemical used. Mostly, lean is used in the batteries, but some batteries also contain zinc too. Some have small Zinc Panels. The chemical has the capacity to store the charge in it. After some time, depending on the life of the battery, the chemical expires and oozes out of the tank. This is the indication that the battery is now about to expire, so you should consider replacing it. The amount of chemical is measured in mH. The higher mh of a battery, the more capacity it has to store the charge.
Another component is the plates that are used inside the battery. As we know that the transfer of charge depends upon two ions, positive and negative. In the language of science, we call them anode and cathode. When you establish the connection between the anode and cathode, you can use the charge inside the battery. The tank of the battery is filled with the chemical and then zinc rods are dipped inside. This is done when you don’t use zinc panels. After dipping the rods in the chemical, they are covered with a plastic body to prevent getting an electric shock. Now you can safely use the battery. After that you can attack the wires with the blue and red or positive and negative slot. The wire you are going to attach has the colors or mark on it. Keep in mind DO NOT ATTACH the wrong colors. It will only give you a shock and you won’t dare to use it again.
