A rechargeable battery does not need to be a mystical black box with a mind of its own. Batteries in a Portable World helps the reader to understand the limitations of batteries, learn maintenance methods and how to restore a weak battery. Knowing how to take better care of your batteries prolongs service life, provides substantial cost savings and reduces the environmental impact of battery disposal.
"Batteries in a Portable World fills a definite need for practical information on battery selection and maintenance. Quite often, claims for battery and charger performance are based on ideal conditions with short term tests on new equipment. This book deals with actual field operations under a variety of conditions that affect the long term life cycle of batteries"
