Batteries: An in Depth ExplanationTips

    This is me writing what will amount to about 10 pages (at least that is what I plan) on how battereis work at the basic quantum and chemical level. I have been promising it for some time, and with everything coming to a close for the summer, I have time. So within the next coupld of weeks (2 or so), I will be filling in posts.


    EDIT: I will be adding about 15 or so posts to expand into. I apologize for the over inflation of my post count, but there is no way I am editing 4 or so huge posts. Each section will have its own post or two. If the mods have any problem with it, please take it down and tell me how to do it to your liking, as many people have asked about this thorough walk through and explanation and thus I would like to do it. I honestly have no idea how long this will be as I have no idea the maximum post size. So I am going over and will ask mods to delete unused posts.

    Please use the comments to make specific requests for info, and I will be happy to add it.

    EDIT 2: Darn...I seem to have done all of this in the wrong section. Mod, would you please oblige? Tips and tricks, please? Or the regular forum, if that is where you think it fits best. Thank you. :)

    basic battery chemistries out there today

    some history, perhaps

    not used in phones: Pb acid, NiCd, NiMH, etc

    Lithium ion <-the focus
    different chemstries
    tie in to crystal structures
