Edison first realized the tremendous field awaiting the development of a dependable commercial storage battery, free from the self-destroying diseases of the lead-acid type battery, and light enough in weight to make practical electrical transpor- . However, the advent of automobiles in the late s spurred him to develop a storage battery to power them. Aware of the weight problems with lead acid batteries, Edison decided to experiment with alkaline electrolytes, such as those used in the Edison-Lalande cell in order to develop a lightweight and long-lasting battery.
Battery Research and Testing, Inc. Oswego, NY, USA. [email protected] Abstract—This paper is going to look at real life aged 80+ year old Nickel-Iron cells that are still functional and will explain the simple recovery techniques that were documented in an original Edison Alkaline Storage Battery brochure from the ’s. Some. Engineers who tested the batteries found that while lightweight, the new alkaline battery did not significantly out-perform an ordinary lead-acid battery. Edison shut down the factory immediately, and between and , the whole battery was redesigned. Edison came up with a new design, and although the new battery used more expensive. Furthermore, the batteries had trouble retaining a charge. Tests by engineers showed that while lighter than the old lead-acid batteries, the alkaline battery did not represent an improvement. Edison shut down the factory and over the next three years completely redesigned the battery. Find great deals on eBay for edison storage battery. Shop with confidence.
Zapp Works Batteries last a lifetime. Over eight years ago, we started extensive testing of original Edison battery components. We learned from years of investigating and experimentation to produce batteries of our own design. Different than Edison's, they can be discharged and charged endlessly with no degradation over time. Inset, Edison with a Type A4 Edison cell, the nickel-iron alkaline storage battery produced at his factory in West Orange, N.J.

Edison’s attention and he was determined to cash in on this growing market by developing a superior storage battery for electric vehicles. Lead storage batteries had several disadvantages. The dense lead electrodes meant that the battery was quite heavy and thus had a low energy to mass ratio. This is a critical parameter for an electric car.
