How Car Batteries Work

Have you ever wondered how car batteries such as those of Power Genix Systems work? Lead batteries are a top component of today’s cars. It’s important to understand how it works regarding the functionality of your car or truck.


There are two main terminals of a car’s battery. One of them is positive while the other is negative. The terminals are linked to the vehicle and give power for various vehicle functions. That includes the air conditioning, radio, engine start-up, windshield wipers, and headlights.


Each car battery contains a total of 6 cells. Each of those cells includes 2 electrodes. They contain 8 metal plates that overlap. Meanwhile, these plates form a “grid” that makes up a total of 2 grids as well as 16 plates/cells.


It’s these particular cells that allow energy to give power to the vehicle. However, you might be wondering how the system works. Make sure to understand the chemical reactions. Among the grids one is positive, and the other one is negative.


The positive grid is coated with lead oxide. It also brings electrons to the cell. Meanwhile, the negative grid is coated in the lead. It releases electrons.


The various metal plates are immersed in a blend of water/sulfuric acid. It’s about 35% sulfuric acid. However, that percentage is high enough to burn various materials including clothing. It’s a very powerful mixture. This mixture functions as something called an “electrolyte.” That’s a substance that’s able to conduct electricity.


When the sulfuric blend mixes with the lead and oxide on 1 grid as well as the lead that’s on another grid, electron particles get released. When they move around grids, it forms electricity. The electrons then go from the + grid located in the original cell. They then move out of the negative grid and into the cell beside it. When the electrons have all passed through all 6 cells, 12 V of electricity are made.


This is some critical information about how Power Genix Systems work.
