Battery University is an on-line resource that provides practical battery knowledge for engineers, educators, students and battery users alike. The papers address battery chemistries, best battery choices and ways to make your battery last longer.
The presentations are easy-to-read and are limited to about 1000 words. The material is based on the book Batteries in a portable World - A handbook on rechargeable batteries for non-engineers, and is written in condensed form. The 300-page book and a library of battery articles are available on www.buchmann.ca. Battery service products are shown on www.cadex.com.
Battery University is sponsored by Cadex Electronics Inc., a manufacturer of battery analyzers and chargers. The material is free of charge for the benefit of all battery users and cannot be used for profit.

Battery University is organized into three parts. Part One addresses the 'mechanics' of the battery and deals with chemistries, charging, discharging, storing and recycling. Part Two looks at the personalities of different battery systems and describes ways to get the most out of them. Part Three reveals who is behind Battery University and provides links to various products to service your batteries. Hope you will enjoy the reading.
