The discussion about the chemistry and applications of batteries continues in this episode with Al Warner, Dan Lambert, and The Battery Blarney Duo. They compare flow and lead acid batteries in terms of their reliability and need for maintenance.
They examine the problems with energy-storage batteries, such as a zinc manganese battery, as well as the benefit of nickel zinc batteries in which electrodes interact with electrolytes. They also mention that a hybrid system using both nickel zinc and manganese dioxide batteries might be very efficient, and that if manufacturers collaborate, third-party integrators will find it easy to connect these products together into a cohesive unit.
