Émile Alphonse Faure
Émile Alphonse Faure designed the modern rechargeable lead battery in 1881. His innovation involved coating the cast lead anodes with a paste of lead oxide and sulfuric acid. The Faure design improved conductivity, durability, and manufacturability. The Faure battery was the first lead-acid battery to be manufactured on a large scale. The battery was strong enough to power an automobile.
