The Battery Builder's Guide is a practical hands-on text that will show you how to make your own rechargeable flooded lead acid batteries. Learn how to recycle parts and materials, how to fabricate battery components and where to purchase the parts, materials and tools you need to build or rebuild batteries. The text covers construction of batteries with Plante (pure lead) and Faure (pasted lead) plates.

    Topics include:
  • Recycling old lead acid batteries
  • Molding battery parts
  • Design formulas and tables

Flooded lead acid batteries are used for stationary applications such as solar and wind powered electrical systems, and for mobile applications. If you need custom batteries of a specific size or output, wish to experiment with building batteries, or want to lower your costs by using recycled components and materials, The Battery Builder's Guide has the information you need.
