History of the battery

History of the battery The first battery was invented in 1800 by Alessandro Volta . Although it was of great value for experimental purposes, its limitations made it impractical for large current drain. Later batteries, starting with John Frederic Daniell 's wet cell in 1836, provided more reliabl ...
